What a beautiful bowl of goodies, nothing better than farm fresh eggs! What are you doing with the rhubarb? I tried this recipe and it has gotten rave reviews.

Country grown at home has to be good for you. You are still in my thoughts and I've sent a couple of e-mails to you but they bounce back. I've also discovered I don't have your new addy - please send it to me *wink*.

looks delish! Its that rhubarb in the back? It's one of my favorites. I have a fantastic Strawberry-Rhubarb dessert recipe.
It's always so good to see a new post from you! Keeping you in thoughts and prayers-whether you post or not.

Janet said...

That looks like the makings of a lovely onion and tomato quiche! And maybe a rhubarb crumble for dessert? Yum!
Hang in there - I know the waiting is hard.

There's nothing like the freshest produce you have grown yourself. Tastes better than anything. Blessings from over here. I hope the old saying 'No news is good news' applies in your case. x x

Hi Kaaren, gosh your veges look great and your new 'girls' are producing well! When I got my 1st lot of chooks they were 'araucanas' lovely smokey grey/lilac colour and they lay 'blue' eggs! very light in colour so when i got new ones it was lovely to get big brown eggs! As it is winter here they are off the lay except one but i haven't had to buy any as yet. hope it's good news for you . sue~n.z.

Merilyn said...

A wonderful bounty Kaaren!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you!!!

Sue said...

Patty said...

Nice little bounty. Mine are growing, but no red tomatoes yet and the rest of the garden is flowering, but no veggies.

Rita said...

Beautiful! You can see why so many artists do still lifes of fruits, veggies, and other food.

OneOldGoat said...

I'm a new follower of your blog. I love it! And I am praying for good news for you.

Sheila said...

Almost like a painting. Bet you are enjoying both fresh veggie and eggs. I see an omlet in your future.

Judy C said...

Looks like you have the makings for an omelet, and maybe a desert in there too!

Jean Brodie said...

Susan said...

You will be eating well for some time to come.......

Good job.........

Sandy said...

How good everything tastes fresh from the garden and a fresh egg is divine. I love your sign on the wall....have just like it. Take care and praying that you get news soon.

Melanie said...

You are wayyy too good! You need me...I'll be that jerk everyone hates-- that demands answers yesterday...that makes a seen and embarresses the entire family. Every family has one....I could do that for you. There's a special place in heaven for you... your patience is a virtue.... Beautiful pic....

Lynn said...

I hope you find out the answers soon. The not knowing would drive me crazy. I am so in love with your quilts and with your chickens. I have been asking hubby for some chickens for months now. I just want 3 females to lay eggs for us. Everyone thinks I am crazy. We do not live out in the country but I think we are allowed to have them in the county.
Hugs to you and prayers also being said for you and your family.
Hugs,
Lynn
