On Eating and Incubating Eggs with a Three-Year-Old

On Eating and Incubating Eggs with a Three-Year-Old

I've spent a lot of time thinking about Ember's ability to mentally process the fact that some eggs are for eating and some eggs are for hatching and what that really means for all eggs. At three, she's developmentally at a point in which she questions everything, which is both invigorating and exhausting. She challenges me to think about my…
Muscovy Ducklings – All Grown Up

Muscovy Ducklings – All Grown Up

All grown up and completely gorgeous, our Muscovy ducklings are no longer ducklings! Instead, they're trying to fly all over the garden and eating us out of house and home with their love of and obsession for chicken scratch as a snack!

In the Kitchen – Peaches!

Yes, the Peach Abundance is starting to roll in and I couldn't be more excited! I've never grown/harvested my very own peaches before and there's just something about The First Time, isn't there?

Of course, it's also delicious when you're relaxing with a cup of hot tea…

As we approach the closing of yet another year, I debated on whether or not I should get all deep and introspective on you, my dear readers...you know, go into all of the changes we've seen over the past year...talk about the challenges we faced...the goals that were crossed off the all mighty To-Do list and those that will be…
Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce is one of those things I never thought twice about until just a few years ago. I mean really, what's there to think about? It comes in a can, you buy it around the holidays (and really, only around the holidays), it comes in jellied form or in whole cranberry form, and people seem to either love it…
