Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #211

FGF Logo

Deb has graciously allowed me to continue on as the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop hostess! We have had so much fun sharing in the previous 210 blog hops, let’s keep it going shall we? Do you like the new logo? I think she is darn cute!

A little update on my end— last week when Deb was posting that I would be hosting this moving forward, hubby and I were in a medical facility waiting for a CT Scan. 🙁

He had doubled over in pain that morning at the gym and the scan revealed he had a KIDNEY STONE! YIKES! For those of you that have experienced this my sympathy is with you. I have never seen such pain in a man; and to see it in a man that never even takes a Tylenol was a little disconcerting for me to say the least.

Good news is that he passed it on Monday night. The little sucker looked like a dry black bean. My hubby loves Mexican food so we have had some laughs over the fact that only he would have a kidney stone that looked like this. We are very grateful that this was short lived and over!

So I have been dreaming of gardening. We have our cold frames that have kept us in greens all winter so far. BUT spring is around the corner and lots to be done. We got some shelving for our little green babies and oh the catalogs… who can resist??? I love saving seeds but the downside is that I don’t need to order seeds! What’s a farmgirl to do? Order more seeds of course!

seed catalogs

What’s your favorite thing to grow? I am asked this and I say tomatoes! And then I say green beans! And then I say peppers! And then I say squash! And then I say lettuce, beets, carrots, radishes, peas, pumpkins, kale…. well you get the idea. How can you say what is your favorite? That is like saying who your favorite child is or chicken or goat is… really???? Who can do that?

I am looking for a CO-HOST! Who would love to do this with me? Please leave a comment or PM me on FB. I am wanting desperately to partner with 1 or 2 or 3 other farmgirls to host this. It is fun and easy. Please consider and let me know if you might like to do this. I want to highlight favorites again on a weekly basis. It would be fun to have a couple of us doing that. And giveaways are a part of 2016! I love a giveaway don’t you?

So let’s get hopping!

To refresh, this is easy! Here are some simple guidelines!

  1. Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals,  quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!
  2. Leave your entry in the  Linky tools space to your  Farmgirl Friday post.
  3. Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!
  4. Enter up to three entries per hop!

Don’t be shy! This newbie farmgirl learns soooo much from all of you! Please round up your best of the week and share it here!

Thank you for your support!

    • Awesome Ginger! I will get with you privately! Your image showed up how I wanted them to. I changed the settings after the first one. 😉

  1. Hi Debbie! I’m so happy you are taking the reigns for the FGF hop! Today I’m sharing my Beach Farmgirl post titled, There’s a Garden in There Somewhere ( A Garden of Love ). Enjoy and happy weekend!

  2. Hi Debbie – sorry about the hubs and the “black bean” passing – mine went through that last summer, 2 lithotripsies and finally surgery to get better. My favorite thing to grow is corn, my favorite vegetable to eat! Or maybe it’s tomatoes, or peppers… I don’t know anything about hosting blog hops, never done any thing like that and I only have a small farm, small blog with small readership. But maybe I’d be interested… Have a great weekend. Best, Kim
