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!

Rhubarb Custard Pie

A friend (a fellow pie-lovin' friend) sent me a link to this recipe - Rhubarb Custard Pie "to be Reckoned With".  How could I not make a pie with that name?!?

And so I did make it.

Then I made it again.

And then again.

And yet...not one photo of the baked finished pie.  Why's that?  It's simply too good.  We couldn't wait to eat it.  It truly IS a rhubarb pie to be reckoned with.

I've already posted about how well the farmstand is coming along on the market garden site but I couldn't resist sharing it here too.

It really is looking just as I'd hoped and I'm so pleased.  A few more things to do still but it's lovely already - what a talented family I have, I feel very blessed that S and the boys were able to make this happen.

If you'd like to see a bit more you can check here or, better yet...drop by and visit in person. ;-)
