Shawl is cast off!

We have been busy here on the farm, here is the crew in the pea patch. We have also been picking Black Raspberries as well as Peppers, Potatoes, Squash, Eggplant, Green Beans and Herbs.
Somewhere in all of this I found time to knit!

Whew! the shawl is cast off, now it only needs blocking. I will be glad to get this project finished and be able to move on to other things.

Detail of the un-blocked edging.

I have not been able to keep up with my blog reading or listening to pod casts, I hope all of you out in blog land are having a good summer!

Food, Food and more Food.

I have been cooking like crazy!
Here are my cookies ready to be sent off to the stores, posing in the sun, they are such hams!
When I am not busy with cookies I make pies. I try to have a little fun with them. I do a different crust pattern for each flavor I make. This one is based on the farm's logo. Now, tell me that is not art!

In my spare time I play, with food of course!

This is my one of my frosting experiments. I am trying to perfect a dairy free frosting for my sister's wedding cake that is yummy chocolate and just the right color and texture. I think this just might be it!
