I spent most of the day in the Masonic Temple Parking Lot in Marysville, KS and it was an okay day despite the heat.   Tom and the girls surprised me with a visit and yes I had both girls out waiving to cars for a short period of time.   Again I...

It is already 1:00 a.m. and I have to get up extra early in the morning so this will be short and sweet.   Tonight was our last t-ball game of the year.   We did not win, but we worked pretty well as a team throughout the game.   My...

Uncle Sam & Apple Pie

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Tuesday July 03, 2012   -   By Twilya

It was a nail biter clear to the final out and we won!   This game was so much fun to watch.   At one point I thought I was going to have a heart attack.   The other team was really good so this one made all of us walk a little taller....

It rained and they say more is coming.   Tom is relieved … so am I.   It came softly and the clouds moved in and so most of it is soaking in.   We still need more but this was as close to a perfect rain as it probably gets.   For now...

While my head is not spinning I thought I would take a moment to sit down and update you to some changes.  Sales are climbing so we are only growing for the CSA at this time, and what a relief that is.  It was hard growing for the larger basket...

Sunday morning Autie woke up at 2:30 a.m. (as I was hoping to finally go to bed) with a fever and throwing up.   With Tom in the midst of wheat harvest I was unable to make it to the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market in Lincoln, NE.   Normally Tom...

The Mind Wonders at the Mulberry Tree

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Thursday May 24, 2012   -   By Twilya

So this week I have busied myself picking mulberries, picking peas, and enjoying Olivia’s first t-ball game.   With the exception of t-ball, there is a fair amount of time to think.   When my hands are busy, but my mind free to wonder… all...
