Tree Blossoms for a Beautiful Bouquet

Yes, your trees needs those blossoms, especially if they are fruit bearing.  Taking a few sprigs from a decorative flowering tree (like our crabapple), however is just as delicious to smell as it is to look at.  (I found a few Siberian Iris blooms that likely won't last another day, and added them to the mix.  Iris is my favorite flower.)  Those of you with lilacs have my undying jealousy...

I'm no florist, and as the farmer will tell you, I don't even try to be.  My kitchen was smelling a bit musty, however, and this works much better than your standard air freshener or candle!

Happy Spring!

Publishing Notes for April 2011

It's been a while since we've updated you on our publishing notes.  It's not that we haven't been busy writing, it's just that telling you about it takes more time than we've had to spare, lately. Between the farm, the kids, and the conferences the farmer and I are starting to attend in 2011, there's no getting near the bottom of our to-do list.  Here is a rundown of some of our more notable published pieces from April.  Enjoy!

Up to No Good

My 11-month old son is loud, so when we didn't hear much from him this afternoon, we looked around the corner into the entryway, where we saw this...




Only on the farm, where the eggs are fresh.
