Weekend Snaps | Birthday for Teacher Man!

Teacher Man’s birthday is officially tomorrow but we celebrated this weekend because, well, why not? Saturday was hot, hot, hot – 90+ degrees and super humid so we mostly kept to the indoors to keep cool. Sunday was glorious in the morning – a perfect 70 degree sunny day for a run on the trail […] Read more…

Keeping It Real

I often hear from people who think I have it all going on. How do I work full time plus blog (not just for me but for other websites too) plus do what I do for my family?  The truth is, it depends on the day you ask me. Some weeks I’m very organized. I’m […] Read more…

Saturday Garden Blooms

July is nearing and that means the gardens are really starting to come into their own. The lilacs and peonies are long gone, but they are replaced by asiatic lilies, colorful annuals, and soon-to-bloom coneflowers, rudbeckia, hydrangea, and daisies. I so love every season of the garden as each is different and has its own […] Read more…

Farmers Learn & Network, Too!

A week ago I was in Duluth to kick off the summer conference of the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association.

Weekend Snaps | Father’s Day 2016

This is not going to be the most riveting blog post I’ve ever written – mostly because it’s almost 9 p.m. and I’m tired, people. I got back from my work’s summer conference on Friday afternoon and it has taken me two full days to recuperate. Seriously, this is one of those annoying details about […] Read more…

Turkey Tuesday | Distractions

My confession for the night: I got totally distracted this evening and now that it’s 10 p.m., I don’t really have the energy to post a recipe.  I went for a run right after work, which morphed afterwards into me listening to the new Justin Timberlake song about 15 times while watering my gardens. Joe, […] Read more…

Pretty Peonies

It’s peony’s time in the garden right now. After the lilacs reach their prime, it seems the peonies come to life and take over the scents and smells in the air. Such lush, pretty flowers! I have three peonies, two in varying degrees of pink and the other white with a yellow center. My brightest pink […] Read more…
