more from ironwood farm

Here are a few more pictures from my visit to Ironwood Farm. It’s been so busy lately that I’ve been thinking about running away to the farm. I bet they’ll have peaches and pears soon – yum!

. . .

This is the old goat house. There are no goats in there now, but it is one of the sweetest things on the property. I could probably hide in here for a couple of weeks. Wait… there might be spiders. Forget it.

Garlic drying in the barn. Mmmmmm – garlic! We’ve been thinking about planting our own vegetable garden next year (the tomatoes, strawberries and raspberries are in need of some companionship). Perhaps we should grow some of our own garlic…

Hazel, swimming. This is when Hazel and I learned that 2.0 isn’t so good at playing fetch.

Sheep bums. The girls were huddled together for… insulation? Occasionally, one of the girls would pop her head out of the huddle to take a peek at us. They seem unimpressed.

Blackberries. Big, beautiful blackberries.

The Ironwood Tree (just in case you were wondering about the farm’s name). The long driveway that leads to the farm is lined with huge trees. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

On our trip, we learned that Heatherjay makes the best blueberry pies on the planet. At least, that’s what she and Rupertjay claim. Wouldn’t you like to have the recipe? I sure would. Let’s hope that our collective peer pressure will encourage her to share.

    Would standing in the hedge whispering “Give up the recipe….give it uuuuuup” do the trick? What do you mean too weird? This is pie we are talking about, that requires some commitment to excellence. Honestly the youth of today.

    Btw that farm totally looks like heaven. Apart from the spiders which would definitely be eliminated in my version of the afterlife. But other than that, perfection.

      It is awesome! I bet you could move in with your family without Rupertjay and Heatherjay even noticing. They are super busy. Just join in on the sheep huddle. I’m tellin’ ya, they won’t even notice.
