Solar Eclipse Dinner

When the rose bush is in full splendor…

You set up two tables in the garden.

When the guests arrive, serve salads with nasturtium blossoms.

Play with your shadows when it’s a full solar eclipse.

A simple dinner becomes divine.

Mustard, kale greens,and carmelized onions with nasturtium and borage blossoms

We ate the mustard greens that grew all around us.

Even the chickens had a good time.

As sweet peas and roses scented the air.

When all the plate are cleared away, there may still be leftovers for the lucky hens…


2009 Summertime Salon

summertime salon at Fairy-Tale Farm

Bucket Head 2

One year, Fairy-Tale Farm had a sheep and a goat! The goat needed to be milked, so children were invited to join in, and pet the sheep.

Of course, there are always chickens to cuddle… Madeline is the chicken whisperer. Seriously.

And crafts to behold!

We had an urban Farm Market. sunflowers and strawberries and lettuce

And sometimes, a Bluegrass Band! Page Brownton and Sidetrack !
Paul Clark, Page Brownton and Jessica Evans

We did figure drawing with a nude model sometimes, or other times, people just sketched the garden.

It was a beautiful time had by all.
