Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #206
Welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop! I cannot believe it is September! We are in 90 degree weather to which I say “whew!” and “yipee”. Yipee is because my 80 tomato plants need some more hot weather!! So bring it on.
The basil also loves it hot and I am busy making and freezing pesto this week. I adore basil and to have pesto in the winter is so amazing. I wish you could smell the garlic and basil ... Read more →

Happy Farmgirl Friday farmgirls!
The first week in September is always a whirlwind if you've got back to school or ( off to college) aged kids in the house isn't it? I always feel like I've just gotten into my summer groove and it's time to start back to school shopping already. With our youngest off to her freshmen year in a local college this year I'll have plenty of time for indoor painting projects and feathering the nest. Luckily it's not completely empty, yet but it's a comin'. Sniff, sniff.
I'm holding on to my baby AND these last few weeks of summer because I'm still " in the flowers " as my family likes to say. I'm even dreaming about them at night! Take it from this flower farmgirl,
The power of flowers is a strong and wonderful spell to be under ... Read more →
Friday on the Farm ~ My Crazy Life
I am pretty sure reality TV shows are birthed out of lives like mine. Over the last four years we have gutted and remodeled a huge portion of our farmhouse, graduated three children from homeschool, became foster parents to four children under 2 years old, started a daycare to continue care for two of these kiddos and expanded the daycare to include others that are in our care still today. All the while keeping up with our small farm, Hubby's day job changing and growing and his radio ministry continuing. Crazy. There really is no other word that explains it better. Somewhere along the way I lost parts of myself that I truly love. Simple things like baking and cooking, making things, crocheting and knitting, even my spinning of yarn from our animals became tedious because there was always something else. God has a way of answering prayers in the least likely of ways ... Read more →
Fratelli Carli White Dressing Product Review & Italian Dressing Recipe
White Dressing: fruity and delicately acidic, characterized by it's sweet and sour taste and it's transparency. It is wonderful on vegetables, oysters, fish or to enhance the flavor of mayonnaise.
Perfect for a multitude of uses. White Dressing is great for making flavorful sauces and mayonnaise. It's also ideal drizzled over a fresh salad with slivers of Parmigiano, or to enhance the fragrance of a fruit salad. credit
This dressing has white wine vinegar and grape must in it's ingredients. It does have a sweet and sour taste.
I am not a fan of vinegar personally, meaning I don't like the taste nor smell of vinegar. I do however, like the sweet/sour taste of this one. ... Read more →

My 100th Blog Post: Farmgirl Sisterhood Friday Post 15
My 100th Blog PostFarmgirl Sisterhood Friday Post 15
Wow, I can't believe that I am writing my 100TH blog post! Even more astonishing is that I have a blog! Truth is I have always considered myself less than others, not worthy of attention, and sometimes I feel that I do not deserve to be loved. This is part of the causes and conditions of my childhood and young adulthood. Let's face it ... I know I am a handful, how could a gal born during a hurricane and named after it not be a whirlwind of chaos with a calm resilient center ... Read more →
Celebrating the Red, White and Blue! Times two!
My favorite holiday (yes including Christmas) has become the 4th of July! Not because I put my country before my Lord - because I don't. #1 reason - I love summer. #2 reason - I love a barbeque. #3 reason - I love the decorations. #4 reason - I love the sounds of firecrackers around the town.
But - as I mentioned in the title of this post - - - I also have come to love Labor Day as well! For all of the same reasons as above . . . minus fireworks . . . but also because these are two patriotic days to celebrate our country and our freedom as well as the hardworking people that have made our country so prosperous. Labor Day signals the end of summer to me. Which can make me "blue" ... Read more →
