afternoon coffee and a bit of light reading from a friend

getting ready to transplant some mushrooms!

perfect winter lunch: egg, peppered bacon, kale, and caramelized onion strata!

sweet napping boy :)

kohlrabi, rainbow chard, and collards from the garden!

endless collection of little socks...most of them have matches!

white bean, rosemary, and ham stew...and fresh turkey stock!

the three amigos.

doing a bit of farmwork

playing around with my new Christmas toy :)
