"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

New Crops

Well, gosh. It's that time of year again - that time of newness. Soon there will be a new crop of fresh veggies...

...and a new crop of yummy strawberries...

...or fresh currants...


...and grapes! Yay!

...or rhubarb, if you like that sort of thing...

...and then there is always a HUGE new crop of these...

...and not to mention these...

Wow - with the exception of the adorable ducklings at the end, every photo could've been one from my garden, too! So close, yet so far...Marigold, you could be my NEIGHBOR! :-)
My rhubarb is growing every minute...and I don't even like rhubarb. What do you do with yours?

Dear Farmgirl,
None for me, thanks. I much prefer Peanuts, especially since the Rhubarb leaves are poisonous. However, the goatmother and goatfather like to make cobbler with it.

I've never had a strawberry, but I think I should.
