Ramp and Watercress Soup

Apr 16

sweetpotatosoup

Last night I made my family Sweet Potato Soup with Ramp and Watercress. All of the ingredients of the soup were from our farm!
Since it is Spring the watercress and ramp are plentiful in streams.
I picked a bunch of watercress and ramp yesterday, and got three
pounds of sweet potato from our storage.

My soup was very tasty and I am going to have it for breakfest
with wild rice!

Very delicious, and I am getting hungry again thinking
about my wonderful soup.

Thank you.

Sandhill Crane Theater

Apr 09

sandhillcranes

We heard their calls yesterday, and looked up into the sky and saw
the long winged, giants flying over. The Sandhill Cranes are back!

Today my friends and I sat on the bench by the marsh near my house
and watched the sandhill cranes perform.

We sat quiet on the bench and waited for them to appear.
It is funny to watch the cranes disappear behind the reeds, and then see
their heads rise over the top. The cranes heads lowered again behind the
reeds only to appear above the reeds two minutes later, each looking in a different direction.

We never know where the cranes will appear next. Sandhill Crane Theater is fun to watch everyday! Try it soon. Thank you!

My vinegar library

Jun 02

Beatrice's vinegar libraryI have the world’s largest vinegar library. I have all kinds of vinegars in jars from A to Z. My mom helped me make the first recipes but now I can make most of the vinegar styles myself. Sometimes, Isabel helps me make more vinegars for the library. I have over 1OO kinds of vinegar made from local vegetables, herbs and fruits. My classmates can borrow any vinegars if they want to use a jar for dinner or lunch. My friends also borrow my recipe cards if they like.

Those crazy frogs

cute muskrat swimming with leafToday, I was walking with Myles by the stream near our farm. Boing, boing, boing I heard these strange sounds all around us as we came close to the water. Boing, boing, bing, boink! What a racket! It was those crazy frogs, so noisy that I almost didn’t see the very cute muskrat swimming by us with a huge leaf in his mouth.

Stomping on flowers

May 05

Today my friend Isabel and I crushed, and stepped on dried flowers that we got from the prairie in my backyard. We used our hands to break pods, and dried flowers so we can take the seeds and plant them in our small clay pots. We are growing the pretty flowers now so we can sell them in the summer at the farmer’s market! I want to give my mom and dad the money I got from selling the flowers to help them give money to farmers in Mongolia, and people around the world that need clean water, and help for their store or farm.
