Country Garden


Our little country garden received a face lift this year.


We added raised beds and gravel pathways.

I'm working on an article with details, but I wanted to give you a little peek at how well it is working out.




The tomatoes are growing up cattle panels.


The first couple of ripe ones may not have made it into the house.
Instead, they went straight into my mouth.  ;-)


I have some new farm helpers this summer.  I've caught them napping on the job a few times...good thing they are adorable!


The kohlrabi has already been harvested.


Strawberry plants were planted, and I am so looking forward to next year's harvest.


Radishes were a first for me this year.


As were sugar snap peas. 
We have been eating them plain and sauteed in olive oil with some s&p.


If you are thinking about raised beds, I say go for it!

Breakfast Casserole With Cottage Cheese


Who says 'breakfast' casseroles are for breakfast only?! 

I enjoy a good breakfast casserole for dinner.
(I'm curious...Do you say dinner or supper for the evening meal?)

The addition of cottage cheese had me wondering about this one, but oh my, it was good.

I've actually made this two different ways...

one with bacon
and
one with ham

both were yum-a-licious!

Welcome to Farm Photo Friday at LL Farm.

All of these pictures were taken on my cell phone and have not been edited.
Warning!  I didn't even crop out the weeds.  ;-)

Graduation Cap Card Holder


It's almost graduation time!

One of the most popular gifts to give at graduation parties are cards.

As the proud parent of a graduate this year, I wanted to create something unique for people to place those special cards in.

I decided to make a graduation cap card holder.
