Abby Berries!!

Ever since our good friend Abby Doty Bailey came to visit, Sweet Baby G has been harvesting the strawberries and freezing what we can’t immediately use. Now we can’t even look at a fresh strawberry without thinking of Abby… and that’s a good thing!

How to Spend 36 Hours of Fun!

Our dear sweet friends Colleen and Juliane squeezed in a quick trip to the farm this weekend while traveling in Europe with their son Avery.  C&J were here in 2015 and we were so happy and excited to have them back with Avery this time.  Avery requested a pizza making and Karaoke challenge:  2015 versus 2017. He nailed both!  Happy Early Birthday, Avery . . . .

Strawberry & Banana Smoothies

It’s been super super hot here on the farm!  But when Abby Doty (B’s childhood friend) was here in May she schooled me on freezing strawberries!  She collected buckets from our strawberry plants and then cleaned and put them in zip-lock bags where she sucked out the air for maximum freezing!  I’ve been trying my best to keep up as the plants continue to produce strawberries!  The best part?  I made strawberry and banana (with a bit of OJ) smoothies this weekend and it was so EASY and REFRESHING and super TASTY!  Avery (a very hip 7-year old) said it was the best smoothie he has ever had!  Thanks Abby Doty!!!!!!

Three Years on the Farm

Three years ago today, we arrived from St. Louis to live full-time on the farm. No regrets, no looking back, and our marriage is stronger than ever. I am now in the sweetest sweet spot of my life!

Delightful Evening Wind

It’s been a HOT season so far here on the farm. That’s good for grapes… as long as you can avoid mildew, fungus and the like. Fortunately, we get a reliable evening breeze from the south. And that helps keep the grapes clean and dry. It also makes for a really lovely end to the day!
