Bittersweet farmette: Swiss Chard Kimchi

It was a sweet, long summer here at the farmette, with some moments more bittersweet than others.  We've savored laughter from friends, with friends, from ducklings, chicks, and our dependable gaggling hens.  Even Rooster Rooster - our not-like-Big-Bird-who-attacked-me - rooster who lovingly (sometimes with a little "extra lovin") shepherds his girls around and doesn't so much as puff his auburn feathers at me, has contributed his fair share of joy with his confidently broken crow (ala teenage boy).  But as one might expect, there has also been some death on the farm, right alongside our own string of miscarriages.

A thousand shades of green

I have so much I need to say to you (new blog ! new business! new chicks! new ducklings!) - but for now, I give you pictures.  The sun is shining, the hummingbirds are humming to the wisteria, & the green in my garden comes in a thousand shades.  I'm pretty darn happy. Like the new blog ?  It's a work in progress- suggestions welcome!
