Do you ever get so excited about something that you get way ahead of yourself in planning/dreaming? My brain is so full of ideas after visiting two different farms this weekend. I've got way too much to figure out--I can't believe I've got to go back to work tomorrow! I guess that gives me five days to decide exactly what's feasible and what will have to wait.
So the first farm was a pick-your-own blueberries operation. It was a picture perfect little farm. I keep meaning to plant my own blueberry bushes during the winter. It has to happen this year!
We picked 4 pounds, which should last a while. Can't wait to taste the blueberry pie. The first time I made this one, I deemed it 'the best thing I've ever made' and I still don't think it's been topped.
The other visit was for a bbq and tour of our CSA farm. It's run by a friendly couple--she's all about the animals--mostly goats and chickens--and he takes care of the veggies. If the CSA selections are like what we ate today, I'll be in heaven!
If I didn't have to work tomorrow, I might start ripping up the grass to farm the front and back yards:) So it's probably best that my enthusiasm has a work week to be reigned in.
