Typical Farm Day
Woke up and got kiddos off to school. Laundry is usually out before kids are off to school, but rain was predicted (and we only ended up with a drizzle).
My son and I cleaned up the dishes, did house chores, and I checked the gardens. Breakfast was farm fresh eggs scrambled in green peppers (grown here and frozen), onions and spinach.
I picked some fresh spearmint and made our daily gallon jug of organic green iced tea with spearmint - yum!
I mixed up some buttermilk homemade English muffins.
All in all a pretty good day. I had to do a quick check on ingredients, as my 10 year-old informed me that she needs to bring in a "peach" dish to school on Monday. I'm considering peach salsa (I may be cheating with some from the store), and baking a peach pound cake.
I was also informed (always at the last minute) that the school's Spring Art Festival is this Sunday. One daughter sings, and one for sure, has about 6 art projects in the festival this year.
