Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!
We're doing a few marathon cooking days in preparation for the busy growing season ahead!
Homemade breads, canned soups and sauces along with a freezer filled with garden veggies and refrigerators filled with fermented foods will help to keep us as healthy as the plants on the flower farm!
The kitchen smells pretty wonderful, too!

Has to be my favorite part of our Open Houses...all the love and hugs!
A huge thank you to everyone who attended our Fall Open House last weekend! A special thank you to our friends and family for taking time from their busy schedules to help us.
We are also grateful for your generous support of The Comfort Dog Program (Ken is a little attached to Katie...can you tell?) and The Little Giant's Foundation. We appreciate your continued prayers for Little Giant Emily as she continues to recover.
God bless you all!

Love it when I'm creating a new fermented recipe and my 'meat and potatoes' loving husband walks in the house, takes a taste and says...
"Wow! This is really going to be good! Maybe you should make another batch while you're at it"!
Looks like my Mexican Cucmber Salad is going to be another fermenting success! Will be tossing it with some cornbread croutons just before serving.
So happy to be getting some healthy, probiotic-filled foods into my hard working hubby!
Next fermenting classes...September 26 and October 17 from 1:00 to 3:00. Let us know if we can save a seat for you!

Found this unusual caterpillar on a hosta leaf in the pergola. Apparently, it is most likely a Flannel Moth Caterpillar (an entomologist agrees) and has traveled much further north of it's normal range. Although it looks soft enough to pet, touching it can cause very severe reactions in humans. A good reminder to ourselves, fellow gardeners and curious kiddos to be respectful of the insect world. Please share.
