What I’m Digging

 Happy Friday, friends! The rain from earlier this week has moved on and things are bright and sunny outside. Oh, and cool, too! It’s cool outside for the first time in weeks. I even had to put on a coat to head out to the chicken coop this morning, and sleep under the down comforter last night!

Here’s a smattering of things that inspired and intrigued me this week:
*Tips for successful planting.
*Juggling motherhood and business
*Ramps!
*Growing potatoes in straw.
*Nature and kiddos
*Oh, Weck shop, you temptress, you.
*So beautiful.
*NPR and Beach House, a perfect union (via Kate). 
*Chive blossom vinegar.
*My most favorite cookie.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there! I’m thinking of making Martha’s Chiffon Cake with Strawberries & Cream for my mom and grandmother this week. I found a farm selling organic U-Pick strawberries less than 1/2 mile down the road from our house this week. I am over the MOON with excitement about this discovery!

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
