Farm Friend Friday
One of my favorite blogging friends is
hosting a brand new Linky party!
Amy, over at Verde Farm has some
nifty ideas and a super cute blog!
Although, her timing has caught me totally off kilter this week
(as my husband just sprung it on me that we are
hosting the superbowl party this weekend - and
I'm supposed to be on full time nanny duty to four
super-young and wild children also this weekend!)
Oh well, I just love parties and will just have to
step it up a little!!
So, for my inaugural F.F. Friday post
I will start by introducing us
and show-and-tell a little
about our Country Life....
We are a pretty fun bunch....
Sall (my hubby) and I (head writer for the blog)
have two grown up kids with families of their own.
A son and daughter, both talented artists both married
to talented artists!! All living in Kansas City at the present time,
but that changes often as they are all young and still
figuring out where to build their nests!
We all love the great outdoors and all
claim South Dakota as home, as that
is where our roots are!
Where ever the kids go, Grandma and Grandpa
go there to visit. The dream is that we all
end up together in a village in New Mexico,
doing art, raising grand-kids and staying warm.
Well, maybe that's grandma's dream, but doesn't it sound nice?
Anyway, back here in South Dakota
Sall and I have a small acreage in the middle
of farm country. We are surrounded by huge
fields that produce corn, wheat, and soy beans.
We use our 10 acres to produce vegetables such as:
tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers, onions, potatoes,
garlic, dill, herbs, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins
well, just about everything you can grow in a garden.
We love gardening!!
We even started marketing our own line of Dill Pickles!
For the last 4 years we've been
producing them commercially and selling them to stores
in South Dakota and online all over the U.S.
"the best pickle you'll ever try" is grown and produced
right here folks!!
Well, that's it in a nutshell
(a very tiny nutshell)
thanks, Amy,for hosting Farm Friends Friday!
I can't wait for the snow to melt and get back
to seeing things turning green and growing again.
For now, all I can post is pictures of snow and cold....
the garden is in it's hibernation state
and the only thing growing is snow-pickles....
In the spring....
Sully, our rooster, will come out of his
coop and inspect the yard and garden
and give us all his
that it's time to get busy and start tilling and planting again!
Once again we will work tirelessly to grow
beautiful flowers and vegetables,
keep the weeds pulled, and the lawns cut....
Sall and I will take our breaks on the front porch
and talk about how lucky we are to
have the prettiest and most peaceful spot
this side of the Missouri!
I hope you will come back and visit
us often AND
visit all the other fun farm friends
sharing in the Verde Farm Friends
Have a great super-bowl weekend friends!
