END QUOTE

Posted by Anais Dervaes

“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; the flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing birds is come…” -- Song of Solomon 2:11,12

Spring has sprung in all her glory; winter is but a distance memory as summer quickly approaches.  Won't be long now until we savor a sun ripened tomato.

Today, for this week's "end quote," I am "borrowing" one posted from my fellow homesteading friends in Tennessee.   BTW, we will be giving away their new cookbook soon. Stay tuned for that!

Jumping grasshoppers!  What a busy week it was.

A friend dropped off a massive fridge  (cross another item off the "farm stand" wish list!)   Although I cringe at the thought of having another fridge, I have resigned myself to the fact this one will be used primarily for the farm stand.  This will allow us to, hopefully, expand our offerings.

Work has already begun on another sitting area in the front garden.  It's such a pleasure to see other folks enjoying the garden space.  They regularly comment, "How lovely your garden is and how nice to hear all the birds."  One would hardly think one was a stone's throw from a freeway.

Work has also started on a new "expansion" project.  Details to come; however, if  you are subscribed to Jordanne's Facebook page you will see some "mystery" photo postings.  Well, I'll close for now... customers are a'coming.

Have a lovely weekend y'all and HAPPY SPRING.

  1. Hmmmm...a teaser add...I'm not good with patience, but will wait to see the new mystery project unfold. Is it a second story on your house?

  2. Just wondering if you can still hear the freeway at your house or does the vegetation act as a buffer? We live on a highway (about 45mph speed limit) and have a highway (about 60mph speed limit) within earshot. I would really like not to be able to hear traffic day and night and am wondering if planting a hardy bamboo forest in the front yard would stifle the racket.

  3. I love the pictures of the strawberries. I planted some last year, but didn't realize they don't produce anything the first year!!! Luckily they are producing now. I look forward to reading more of your entries.
