It is a beautiful day! You need to come see us. The birds are singing and the sky is blue. The weather promises a mild day. The flowers are freshly watered and the tomato, pepper, eggplant and Swiss chard plants are all needing new homes. Your mother if like me has always loved growing things...that is why she took such good care of you over the years. Treat her to a bar of hand-crafted soap, a beautiful hanging basket or a nice supply of bedding plants. While you are here find something for yourself too! Tom has been busy planting a few more rows of green beans and I think there are plans for a few early watermelons.
My girls and I will be her until 4:00 p.m. today when we leave for t-ball practice but Tom will be her, just give a call on his cell phone so he will be looking for you! 785-527-0178.
We will be open with Saturday with two locations. We will be open on farm from 9:00 am. - 2:00 p.m. Tom and the girls will show you what we have for sale and just ask Livie about our stevia plants!!! You will also find us are the Manhattan Farmers Market at 5th & Humboldt in Manhattan Kansas from 8:00 am. - Noon.
On Sunday you will find us at the Old Cheney Farmers Market in Lincoln, NE from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. I bet if you called Tom he would meet you at the farm then too!
Regardless of the day you come out I will warn you that Autie's new fun thing is to wear two socks that do not match and she is an ace at finding the best dirt spots on the farm. She is a crazy little thing. Livie is now combing her own hair and it is a little wild. My girls are too funny!
I have to share one more thing. Our wild Momma Cat had her kittens in the chicken coup in one of the nesters…everybody gets along. They are up and walking now and my girls were concerned for the kittens’ safety. Chickens can be quite aggressive. They had to “save” them last night and put them in a pet carrier for their WILD mother to raise them in. Last night when the girls went to bed I returned them to their mother and while she is still very wild she seems to know I am looking out for her girls too! She will not let me pet her, but she will bring her babies to me if she thinks they need help. Good Momma Cat.
My statement of gratitude for the day is for the sunshine and cool breeze. I am thankful for two little girls who are a little grumpy this morning but able to hang out with me today! I am thankful for the smiles I cannot hide every time I see Autie with her green boots, dirty face and miss matched socks. Livie makes me smile with her wild and crazy hair and her ability to look at the simplest of things on this farm with complete wonderment.
I am also thankful for the customers who will stop by this weekend and thankful for a mother who as we speak is on her way to Graceland. I trip I wish I could have made with her. Happy Mother's Day Mom.
