I am joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. Please be sure to visit the other participants and see what they have been doing outdoors.
We are so fortunate in the summer to be able to get wonderful produce and farm fresh eggs in this area. I no longer have the vegetable gardens I used to have. Instead I have some containers so I can cut flowers and some herbs so I can season the food.
We get eggs at a nearby farm.
We all save our egg cartons from week to week. We take back an empty and come home with a dozen. The egg at the top is pale green/blue and comes from an Araucana chicken or a similar breed. You can read about these chickens here. The owners of the farm always make sure that each dozen contains one pastel egg.
You can see the variety of colors in the dozen I got today.
Some of the girls were strolling about but they were quite camera shy and turned their backs on me. Their eggs are amazing. The yolks are a brilliant yellow. These eggs give new meaning to fried egg sandwiches.
Then we were off in another direction to get tomatoes. In a field to the right tucked almost in the tree line were beehives.
The field is full of wildflowers and clover and the honey will be sold at the farm. Soon the hives will be hidden as the field grows taller.
Then we went into the farm and got our tomatoes. We keep them on the windowsill where they are a decorative touch for the cabin. We are making Cathy’s Baked Bean sandwiches for supper. You can get the recipe here at Wives with Knives.
I picked some flowers and the windowsill vignette is done.
Thank you for stopping by. I love your comments. I will catch up and visit later in the week. I am having a hip replacement in three weeks and there is a lot of pre-op going on.
