Mille Bornes, Poppies, Curry and Pie


A half day off. Vibrant Poppies. First crop of peas to snack on.  Mille Bornes (a favourite game in our family - my one from childhood misplaced in the last year but another one found at the thrift store last week and played endlessly since). A cast iron pot of curry on the stove made with loads of veggies from the garden (including garlic scapes and mustard greens), and rhubarb cut up on the counter ready to be made into the last rhubarb custard pie of the season and then shared with friends tonight.

Our dog "testing" new dog biscuit recipes E is making to sell at the farm stand.  A different recipe in each hand and finding out which hand he licks the most. ;-)  The apple and greens recipe seemed to be his favourite.

Life is good!

oh i think those dog treats will be a top seller! i love that shot of your boys with treats in his habds, so cute with that broad grin.

yay for a half day off! i wish our weather would warm up a little, a new greenhouse on the farm has been giving its' owners lots of humidity/tomato disease headaches. i guess it is what it is, the wet west coast will always be challenging for tomatoes even with supports. have a lovely weekend heather. :)

excuse my typos, that should read "boy" as clearly i only see one, and "hands" ... i guess my eyes are tired. :)

I haven't played Milles Bornes is years! Great idea to sell doggie treats! Enjoy your weekend.

Poppies and rhubarb are something that we can't grow here in Louisiana! Poppies are so beautiful too. I can buy rhubarb but I bet it is so much better when it is fresh. Looks like you are doing well in the produce area!
