Weekend Review

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a good weekend. Ours was full of all of this goodness:

*Grilled cheese, 3 ways
*Mountaintop farm vistas
*Fresh eggs
*Apple trees
*Red okra
*Baby chicks
*Pepper farms
*Smoking peppers
*Future farmers of America
*Honey extracting with friends
*Autumn frittatas on the patio
*A wood-fired mountain-side pizza party

It was unquestionably the most idyllic welcome to autumn I could have ever imagined or possibly hoped for. And a great way of relaxing in preparation for our pending trip this weekend-NYC, we 3 Englishes are coming your way!

Here’s wishing you a wonderful week ahead!

*Little images from me; big ones from Nicole.

    Lovely photos as usual! You need to have a B&B so I can visit and take Ashley Workshops :)

    Suggestion – maybe you could consider in the future putting captions under each of them so we can read about what we are looking at as we go rather than scrolling back and forth to the bottom to figure out what we’re looking at?

  • Ditto on the workshops! :) I love every one of your posts, they are all so great! Question: Have you ever had Auracauna chickens? We have 3 of them, along with 2 barred rock and 1 rhode island red. Do you know when the Auracaunas start laying? I have your “Keeping Chickens” book and ADORE it. Along with every single one of your other books ;). We are slowly going from a very busy life in a newer subdivision and hoping to transition to a smaller home with enough land to do the types of things you’re doing. Thanks so much for your great posts and your awesome examples.
