  Hello everybody! We meant to do this post a long time ago, but sorting through the hundreds (maybe thousands) of pictures that we took while we were in Florida this past October seemed like such a daunting task   Thanks to Anna’s help of getting most of them uploaded onto Flickr for me, we […]

A Tomato Sauce Recipe {with pictures}

September 19th, 2013 by farmgirls 7

  Yay!  It’s canning time again   The season of tired feet, stained fingers, sticky floors and oh so yummy food filling up the empty shelves in our basement again!  Every year when the ‘firstfruits’ of the garden come on (which is usually the green beans), we groan because we know that it’s that time […]

  Remember when the Big Potato met our Big Egg?  Every year our town has an Egg Festival and parade during the end of May/first part of June.  Little kids can run for the ‘Miss Chick’ and ‘Mr. Rooster’ contest and they dress up and ride in the parade. And of course all the emergency […]

A Trip Down South…and Back

November 8th, 2012 by farmgirls 10

  We tend to be procrastinators…especially when it comes to getting ready for a big trip.  It’s not that we weren’t excited to go, we just weren’t excited to pack, especially when you’re going to need your toothbrush, your pillow, and some of your clothes before you actually leave.    So we kept adding to […]
