Farm Fresh Friday #10

Welcome to Farm Fresh Friday

This week on the prairie....

and fun for the 4th of July!!

Our garden is just starting
to provide us with fresh veggies...

we've been enjoying 
fresh potatoes, onions, and broccoli
all week long 

Our kids and extended family all brought
coolers full of fresh vegetables from Kansas City
3 slabs of fresh pork ribs!

Our son brought the spices
and made his own rib-rub...

We got to feast on some 
delicious Kansas City barbecue
right here in our own back yard!!

(grab a napkin before you look
at the next photo!!)

It's been a delightfully hectic week 
full of entertaining, cooking and cleaning
and running after things
all in preparation for their arrival...

Last Friday I got to the farmer's market,
only too late for the strawberry rhubarb pies!
(she was sold out by 8:30a.m.!!)

Next time I'll be there early
and try to beat the traffic....

Wouldn't it be fun to ride to the market
in this driver's seat??

This fella had a front row parking spot and was 
talking to all kinds of Model-T fans while the Mrs. was shopping

I got to spend a couple hours talking to some 
proud gardeners and crafters at the market
and enjoyed touring a couple of beautiful yards...

then a week full of 
fun family time,
delicious meals (I think I've gained 10 pounds),
chasing grand-kids, 
and taking ooodles of pictures!!

Life is Good!!

What fun and fresh things
have you enjoyed this week?
Met any farmers?
Gossiped with any gardeners?
Come join us,
crow all about your
farm fresh, hand-made, home-grown
goodies right here!!!

This is a place to share all things FRESH,
 homemade and/or home-grown.
There is no rule that it has to be made by you or grown by you,
just the fact that it was 
hand made or grown by somebody

Oh shoot... I missed your farm fresh Friday. Darn it anyway.

Hopefully, I will remember next week.

Kansas City barbecue is the best, hands down. But, then again, I may be a little biased. :-)

In the meantime, the ribs made me hungry... I better go find some supper now! =)
