A whole lot of seeding going on..........



Hello everyone~Sorry I have been gone again but we have finally been getting some FARMING done! After a slow to warm up spring, lots of melting and then some rain-- we were off to a slow start but we are speeding up now! :) We are SEEDING wheat, corn, flax, sunflowers and alfalfa.I have been doing a lot of running around for parts, taking things to the field, giving Mr. Farmer a ride and of course cooking meals!










Our kids are finally out of school so it is good to have them all home now. When I am not doing all the things I just mentioned then you can find the kids and myself out in our yard. I have been trying to get flowerbeds in shape and some flowers planted too. My garden has only been in for seven days but I dug around a bit and found that the seeds are germinating......so if the weather stays warm I should have some things up and out of the ground soon!Thanks to all of you that have stopped by even though I have not been able to visit you. I will be visiting soon! :) I wish you all a sunny, happy weekend! I would love to hear from you...tell me what YOU are doing this weekend! :)

Awwwwwwwww.........Heaven!


I started planting my garden today!!

Yes...it finally dried out and it is finally warm too!

Just seeds though mind you.............................

We have a frost warning out for tonight so I

will not be putting any plants out as of yet!

I will be planting tomato and pepper plants later.

Being in the garden is HEAVEN on earth to me!



See what seeds I am planting? What have you

planted in your gardens?



Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful holiday

weekend. We won't be doing anything but planting

the gardens and the farmer will be in the field seeding.

Of course, we will have a fun cook-out on Monday--

but then it will be back to work for the farmer!!!!!



So, leave me a comment and tell me what you

planted in your gardens this year! I really am interested

A word from Emma!

Hi everyone....it's me, Emma, you know, Emma the calf! I am just laying here in the nice hay that the farmer threw out for me. I am really enjoying the sunshine! I have been keeping an eye on those three strangers that the farmer brought in awhile back. I have tried talking to them but they seem a little standoffish!


I think they will come around though....I am pretty sure they are just intimidated by my CUTENESS!

Me and the farmer's wife hope you have a happy, sunny day!!

PS...leave a comment if you stop by okay? I know that really makes the farmer's wife happy! ;)

a quick sandwich recipe for you....just like you would get in a restaurant!!

Hello all~

Well, I thought I would be back to reading and blogging more often again but life just seems to be getting busier for us! I decided that I was going to get this recipe posted though so here it is! This sandwich makes a great Saturday noon meal for your family! I hope you enjoy it! You don't need to go out to eat to enjoy a fancy sandwich....you can make it in your own kitchen! We are busy mowing our yard, working in the house and Mr. Farmer is hoping to get out in the field (after a very long wait while the fields dry) to plant some corn. I hope you will still stop by and leave me comment even if I have not been to visit you lately...I promise...I WILL BE BACK!

Lil Farmchick's Recipe

I had a few minutes so I thought I would share with you the recipe I told you about in my last post. Lil Farmchick found a recipe in one of her magazines that she just had to try. She had me pick up the items at the grocery store and then she made it all by herself! I didn't know what to do with myself while she was preparing the meal!


PENNE MOZZARELLA
INGREDIENTS:

1 pound uncooked penne pasta
6 tbsp. olive oil
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 cup skim mozzarella cubes
3 cups bagged baby spinich

HOW-TO-COOK:
Cook pasta according to package directions. Ladle out 1 cup of the boiled water and set it aside, then strain pasta. In medium skillet, warm the oil. Add tomatoes and garlic and saute over medium heat until soft (about 15 minutes). Add the cheese, spinich and pasta water. Remove from heat. Toss with pasta, then cover with a lid until cheese melts!
Serve with a nice grilled juicy steak or chicken breast! ENJOY--It's yummy!!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.....make sure you say hi so I know you were here to visit!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you lovely Moms!! :)

So we took a drive.....

(click picture to enlarge..it's much better that way!)


to check out the lake that we love to go camping, fishing, boating and tubing. We were curious to see how much the lake has come up due to all the snow this winter. We were happy to see that it has risen quite a bit. This photo is one that I took that shows the scenery around one spot that we camp. I really think it is a lovely shot.

So, I have been busy as you can tell by posts or lack there of! Our kids have a lot of end of the school year activities, concerts ect...I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning and spending some time outdoors too. After the long winter it is so wonderful to feel the sun on my face and hear the birds singing away in our yard. My farmer is PATIENTLY waiting for the fields to dry out so he can begin planting. I do have some pictures taken so that I can share some yummy recipes. Lil' Farmchick found a new one in a magazine that she just had to try. It turned out awesome. I will be sharing that with you all in just a few short days so make sure you stop back to see that!! All is going well here...tell me what YOU have been up too!!




Hugs~
