New neighbors

Our new neighbors have settled in nicely. These little babies have taken up residence in our neighbor’s shrub. From my (brief) research online, I think they are sparrows, but I could be wrong. Momma-bird, on the right, is never too far away. Welcome to Primrose Park, little ones.

Formally invited

I received a beeea-uu-ti-ful invitation in the mail Saturday… I am always excited for every wedding Jay and I are invited to, but this one is a bit more special than the rest. That’s because the wonderful bride, Pam, is letting me take her wedding photos. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity and after seeing these invitations, I am already inspired. Let the countdown begin. ;)

Farm fotos

Here’s another installment of Even’ Star Farm photos. FYI, I am loving this. This past Friday, I picked up more stir fry vegetables, napini and Earliglow strawberries. The strawberries are the most flavorful berries I have ever eaten. At this point in the season, the farm is busy transplanting its summer crops. Lots of action, except from Buster, the dog. :) Asiatic peonies in bloom. They are beautiful. Transplanting cucumber plants. Buster is hard at work. It’s a tough life.

Even’ Star Farm

If you like fresh veggies, flowers and eggs, I highly recommend signing up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership to a local farm. You are not only supporting local agriculture, but you reap the benefits of receiving ultra-fresh foods and getting exposure to veggies you’ve never seen before. It’s definitely a win-win. Jay and I became CSA members with Even’ Star Farm this season, and we love it. In the past two weeks, I’ve brought home baby bok choy, onions, arugula, collard greens,  sweet potatoes, stir fry vegetables and pastured eggs. And it gets better. I get to take photos for the farm. !! I’ve asked the wonderful owners of Even Star if I could photograph their farm, and they said yes. I’ll be documenting the farm throughout the season and sharing my favorites on the blog. It allows me to give back to the farm, and I hope it will inspire you to join a CSA. Enjoy! Two baby geese!
