Tomato and Basil Salad


End of season tomatoes...

Yep, they're still producing.

I don't want to can or freeze any more tomatoes.

Now is the time that I can truly focus on the fresh, delicious taste of the mighty tomato.


Tomato and basil salad is simple and delicious.

Dice up some tomatoes.
Chop up some basil
Season with salt and pepper.
Let them get to know each other for a while in the fridge.
Enjoy!

Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania


The Mother Earth News Fair (MENF) is coming up!  Held in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania this upcoming weekend,  the Mother Earth News Fair is a fun-filled, hands-on sustainable lifestyle event.  The fair is offered throughout the year at different locations in the US.  This will be my first time attending!
As a contributor to Community Chickens, I will get to put a face to the names of many.  As a spectator, I am excited to observe.  With over 150 workshops to choose from, I plan on being educated and entertained.  Topics such as homesteading, gardening, natural health, chickens, and so much more interest me.
Vendors will be offering books, tools, accessories, and lots more.  I think I should pack a notebook and pen for note taking and an extra bag for the goodies I find.  Have you attended a MENF?  What was your favorite part?

Country Living Fair 2016


Yesterday I attended the Country Living Fair!

As you can tell from the sky, it was a beautiful day.

How cute is that chicken picture hanging on a blue building?
You know I had to take a picture and share it with you!

The Country Living Fair was located at the Ohio Village in Columbus, Ohio.  It was a quaint little setting.

Do you remember my story of Cows and Polka Dot Pajamas?

Well, we finally got the electric fence installed.

We went with a solar powered electric fence.

Deck Progress (Part 3 of We Are Building A Deck)


Yep, we are still at it!

Handy Hubby works on the deck in his spare time (and when the humidity is not 950 degrees).


A lot has been done since my last update...
