Yipee! It is Farmgirl Friday and I am back! I have not blogged for a couple of weeks. Lots happening and travel. We got back Wednesday night and I am getting back in my homestead groove.
I will be out with the green babies and gardens this evening and over the weekend. I will take some pictures and put up an update; some of you have inquired as to what is going on with those precious green babies! They are doing well for the most part. All of my eggplant got eaten while we were gone, but everyone else is happily growing. The potatoes are going to take us over if we are not careful…
Deb has a new Wednesday blog “Wednesday Garden Notes with Deb” This week is all about direct sowing annuals. Perfect timing for me as we just ordered some zinnia seeds and other pretty things to plant. I am a sucker for seeds and seed catalogs! Deb is also going to try succession planting this year with her flowers; I am doing the same with my veggies. We will have to compare notes.
So, I am ready to see what everyone is up to. I feel a little disconnected and there is nothing like Farmgirl Friday to connect in again!
Let’s get hopping! Stop by Deb’s and say “hi!” Thank you for joining in!
Welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #196 AND Happy Mother’s Day!
This weekend celebrates all things motherhood. Along with the scrapes, bruises, messes and frustrations that are a part of being a mom, the hugs, kisses and love outweighs all and we would not trade it for the world.
I hope this weekend brings to mind all things that celebrate motherhood. Care, nurture, love, protection all display motherhood. Whether you are a nurse caring for all, in the military protecting your country and citizens, a gardener raising green babies, an animal lover, a caring neighbor or a thousand other roles we all play out, you all depict traits associated with motherhood everyday. I hope during this weekend you celebrate all things motherhood and wish for you a glorious celebration with those you love.
Welcome! April’s weather sure is bringing us a little bit of everything! Whether you are hot or cold, stormy or calm we are glad you are here.

I am having “Mimi fun” spending time with my little grandson this week. An added bonus is seeing all of my daughters on this trip and also dog sitting for my oldest who is in Grand Cayman Island! Yep, her hubby won the trip at work for being the “MVP” of 2014. How cool is that?
So let’s get hopping and see what you are up to. Have a great Friday and weekend!
Happy Farmgirl Friday and Happy Easter (and Passover to those that celebrate!).
Mom and dad are visiting this weekend and we will have grilling weather according to the forecast. I will be mixing traditional fare–asparagus, green beans and potatoes with non traditional Easter fare– cedar planked salmon on the grill. Hubby is making an apple pie. YUMMY! I cannot wait!
Are you busy planning your menu? Do you go casual, formal or eat out and let someone else do the cooking?
Welcome to Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop. Can you believe it is #190? When I typed that number I was blown away.
I was so inspired last week by the great blog that was shared by Unfettered Fox on Nasturtiums!Besides the gorgeous pictures that made me dream of warm days and color, she had GREAT information on all the wonderfulness of Nasturtiums. From their beauty, to their role as a trap plant and their edibleness. It made me want to plant these little critters everywhere! Aren’t they beautiful?
I have started seedlings this week. That is the first step for me in gardening so I feel like I am back to gardening! Deb is still thawing out as it much of the east coast. What are you up to? Your posts are always inspiring to me. I learn so much every week.
Howdy and welcome to Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #189!
OK, I will say it— I LOVE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME! Yep I do. I know some folks don’t like it for all kinds of reasons, but I love having light longer in the evenings (it energizes me) and I love that it signifies spring and summer are on their way and soon I will be in my garden at 8:00 pm loving life! So yes I will lose an hour of sleep, but I lose an hour here and there anyhow on a regular basis. I am just looking forward to Sunday evening and having the daylight a little longer, especially since my plans include starting some seedlings this Sunday. 🙂
Deb and I are so excited about the latest edition of MaryJanesFarm Magazine. Mine has not come yet… maybe today??? The Girl Genius featured in Deb’s article isSarah Hudock. Most of you are familiar with her artwork and love it like I do. I can’t wait to read the article.
Hello and welcome! We took a couple of weeks off, but we are back blog hopping and we are hoping you can join in!
I know many of us are still dealing with the white stuff and cold, but March 1 is this weekend and that means before long I will be starting seedlings inside. I can’t wait to see my green babies again!
I loved it and her blog for many reasons and one being that she uses excel like I do on my garden planning. So her blog hit the gardener AND the geek in me! She has great tips about rotations and sunlight too. If you missed it, check it out!
Howdy farmgirls and welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop! Deb has been cold and buried in the white stuff. I have been cold without snow and looking at 50 tomorrow. Maybe a little outdoor activity will occur. I have been in the basement today digging through boxes and trying to slim down the storage.
I have been having so much fun planning our garden. I have gotten a bit more organized with a plan on a spreadsheet, done a seed inventory and ordered some seeds to fill in the gaps. I LOVE seed catalogs. How about you? Nothing takes the chill off like looking at summer squash, tomatoes and peppers!
Do you have a favorite activity to do in these cold months? Quilting, crocheting, dreaming of gardening (like me)… share what you have been up to this week.
Deb and I are looking forward to your posts. Have a great weekend and week!
Howdy farmgirls and happy Friday! It is sunshiny here but a little deceiving as it is COLD. But we have nothing on Deb over at Dandelion House and you other eastern farmgals that got blasted with the snow storm earlier this week! We are expecting snowfall this weekend and to be honest I am crossing my fingers for some. I am missing the white stuff!
I look forward to reading your entries each week. Last week I read with a bit of shock of Urban Overall’s finds in dried beansover the years. I do sort and rinse but I confess to laziness on this one as I have never spotted anything out of place so I thought these warnings to be a bit exaggerated. She has convinced me to be more diligent!
I am busy with my garden plan and looking at seed catalogs. I added some new catalogs to the mix this year and cannot wait to get through them all. What are you up to?
Join on in and brag a bit on yourself and what you are doing. We love to read them! Let’s get hoppin’!
