gourd gracious








So I know the one thought that's been on everyone's mind...nagging at you like an itch you can't reach ....a real head-scratcher for sure...

What do we do with all the pig manure that accumulates??? Answer...we compost it. Sorry to disappoint. I could make up something extroidinary like we are running our town on methane...but,sadly this is not Thunderdome.

However, the most exciting tale is that springing and sprouting out of the manure are the most amazing collection of gourds and pumpkins. All those chunky seeds all but forgotten from last Fall's feedings until Spring and Summer brings them back to life....a constant reminder that you reap what you sow!

Hi Jennifer, this is about a painting I saw on one of your older posts.....the one with the bird sitting on the pot of strawberries. Is it for sale or will you have something similar in the future? It is sooooo cute. I love birds AND strawberries! Your paintings are so pretty and whimsical. I learned about you from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage because of her cherry paintings. The farm looks wonderful.....I've always wanted to live in the country on a small farm. We did that once for about two years but then had to sell it and move back to TN. Hope you are having a great week! Becky
