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.
Dear Diary, I know I told you about my Dad saving snow. What I didn’t tell you is that he does not remove snow from the ground where there is soil or plants. He only collects the snow off our many roofs on our farm, and some places where there are slabs of concrete. The old slabs are on our farm from the previous farmer. A tornado many years ago past through and took away some of the farmer’s barns!
If you have any ideas about new uses for slabs of concrete email me at:
Thank you. Enjoy Spring!
The apples are here! The apples are here! Yesterday our family went to an apple orchard near our house. We picked so many kinds of apples. There are Lodi apples, Johnathan apples, Ida Red apples, Cortland apples and they are all delicious. I like this one apple it looks like a potato and tastes like an orange. Those apples are not available until the peak of apple season in October. I can’t wait! My dad said we picked over 20 pounds of apples. He is confident that we will eat all of them.
Today, my dad found an old chair under the hay in our barn. I helped him clean the old dusty chair with soap and water. My Dad said we can make the old chair happy and new if we paint it in new bright colors. The old chair looked so sad but we did not want to throw it out. My father has a friend that makes milk paint in all kinds of colors. Milk paint is safe and very earth friendly. I used milk paint and painted the chair in pink, green, and purple, and some other color I forgot which one. I also painted cute flowers on and we now have a happy new chair on our porch. The End.
I have some really cute shoes my dad bought me for school. I don’t like to wear shoes but these shoes are very cool. These cute, pink shoes are cool because they are only made out of recycled materials. if you plant the shoes in the dirt they are will disappear because they are biodegradable and they will become beautiful flowers in your garden!
Today, my dad took me to the library. I think I was there for eight hours there were so many books I wanted to read. Every time I walked to another shelf there was another book I wanted to read. When the librarian told us that the library was closing in fifteen minutes I didn’t know what to do. My dad said I had pick out my top five favorite books out of all the ones I wanted to read. He then changed his mind and said “oh okay top ten.”
