Young Farmers:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures that love hidding in the Zuchinni patch & you adorable Gnomes that tried tameing Fred the Donkey into being a plow horse.... they found that all the apples in the world will not work:)

Miss Lamb your girl in the Garden young farmer here,

I am happier than a peach to be sharing with yall a lovely new society I am a part of:)

A group of wonderful young farmers:)

Can you spot this Little Lamb?:)

Apparently.... I am in the next generation of agricultural pioneers:)

What a title to live up to:)

GOOD magazine put together a lovely list of young farmers across america, & I feel fortunate enough to be amongst them :) But you know what this list is missing?

Look closely....

It needs....more Oklahomans:)

Living here & knowing the people here, I would love to see more of my fellow young farmers not only thrive on their own farms, but show the other states how diverse & wonderful we are!!

Ok....I have said my peace:)

You can read my particular profile right here darlin dears...

Much more is to come from being a young farmer, & I look forward to sharing my adventures with you all my loves:) 

Did you know I love you?:) I really do....

Spring Storms, Summer Cottages & you spending a lovely picnic with me,

Meet..... my favorite Flower:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, Wonderful Meadow Creatures that are luminous & Distant in the pasture &.... of course.... you wonderful Gnomes who plan to go with me back to the Sand Plum patch to see how they are ripening....

Miss Lamb your farmer of the fields, & kisser of Cows Foreheads here,

Ohhhhhh the Carrot Flower....

My favorite flower:)

Besides small cream and peach Roses, or lovely peach Persian Buttercup, the Carrot flower is my favorite... Yes, Queen Anne's Lace is in theory the same thing... I just prefer the flowers that grow in my Garden plot of Meadow Sweet Carrots more:)

I think it will be a lovely time this summer when I can travel the back highways of the South while traversing my way up to the Forests of Kentucky & Tennessee (a special project I am not allowed to talk about just yet.... but soon:) & I will harvest the Wild Carrots & Queen Anne's Lace, but my heart is other places... in a garden.... at EBA:)

If you are interested, I even have prints in the Shop Available:)

"The Day & Light, With A Song Upon The Grounds Lips"

"The Day & Light, With A Song Upon The Grounds Lips Part II"

..............& a slightly more Airy capture:)

"The Day & Light, With A Song Upon The Grounds Lips Part III"


Are y'all having a good day? I must admit, it has been a tough few days at EBA.... I lost a very close friend from the mountains... I will not go into detail about it, because he would want me to be filled with joy during this Abundant Spring and not in the least sad, but I will miss our Truck Rides :)

I promise... to be... Way over Yonder in a Minor Key:)
(sorry...inside joke folks:)

In honor of all that is sweet, I pledge myself to doing better in the garden... I pledge myself to picking wild-flowers more often....& I pledge myself to planting more Carrots:)

I send a kiss to each of your foreheads my loves:)

Did you know, I do....very true... Love you?:)

Mornings In The Garden, Lovers of this sweet old land & naps with you under large trees,

Love.... is love.... is a task at hand....

Enjoy :) Enjoy Inspiration...

Miss Lamb your plum picking farmer of the land here,

I will not bare all of my written flesh when it comes to the world of Wolves here at EBA, but I would like you to meet the newest edition to the farm.... my new kitty Wolf:)

He adores the Gnomes, & the Gnomes adore him:)

He also has found a great friend in Harold, who is trying to teach him how to properly Nap... but Wolf just wants to talk:)

Wolf: Is this how we Nap?
Harold: You are getting there...

Note that Wolf is the size of Harolds paw:) Very tiny baby...

He has also found a favorite spot napping amongst eggs... I really have no words for this one...

Well, I just wanted to share my own joy with all of you out there in this sweet old world:) Be looking for the future adventures of Wolf, my new kitty:)

Picnic Under The Pecan Tree:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures that fall asleep on my front porch and you comical Gnomes that helped me make Strawberry Jam today and tried to wear it as face paint (really... I just caught you eating it you anwry things...),

Miss Lamb your cottage loving a creek fishing farmer here,

Life has been so darn busy here at Early bird Acres... there is just sooooo much I want to tell you right now...

But I just plain can't yet...

Here are a few things that I can tell you:)

My milk cow Ohio is nearly due... she is going to Freshen any day now:)

In a very Agrarian way (nothing mean about it Ohio... you are a cow), she is HUGE in her tummy... I am surprised she can still fit through the barn door:)

I really want her to have a Girl this time... I will be fine with a boy... I adored Sweet Basil, but gosh I just want a little Girl.. raise her to be another lovely milk cow:)

The Garden is doing amazing:)

We have been getting so much lovely rain here in Hobart. I have more peas in a pod than I can count in a day:) Now, I just need squash.... I have practically a field of Squash flowers, now they just need to grow Squashes !!

I have been having many a picnic under my pecan tree:)

With Harold of course....

Harvest has Halted because of the rain, but we do not have much left to cut... it was an amazing Harvest:)

But anyways, I will be posting more later in the week..... I really do, love you...

Strawberry Fields...until the birds eat them:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures that sing in the North pasture & you hilarious Gnomes whom have befriended a group of three bunnies in the east pasture...we named them Eggs, Sweet William & Chubs:)

Miss Lamb your girl of the garden farmer here,

Ohhhh Strawberries:) how I love thee:)

but you lovely birds like to eat them:)

So, while they are here, I have been having a great time cooking with them:)

Thus, you must meet my lovely:
"EBA Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie"

Here is what you will need:)

*1 Deep shelled Pie Crust (Or make your own to taste if you please...this is what I usually do, so it will be extra thick & hearty)
*2 1/2 eggs (yes.... 2 & 1/2 eggs)
*1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream
*1 cup of white sugar
*2 1/2 packages of Philly cream cheese
*1 tablespoon of Vanilla
*2 quarts worth of Strawberries (I usually end up eat most of one quart while I am cooking:)

 *On stove top, melt & begin to whip two of the packages of the cream cheese. Once semi melted, add your white sugar (2/3 cup), cream & eggs... (yes... 2 1/2) to the lovely mixture. Once thick & pourable consistency swirl in the delicious Vanilla .

*Pour and evenly spread your delicious cream cheese mixture inside of pie shell... bake this mixture at 350 until your pie looks slightly fluffy and slightly brown.

*While that yummyness is baking, cut the tops off of your lovely garden or farmers market Strawberries, & feed those tops to the Chickens:) Place them aside. Then take your last half of your cream cheese and melt it with 1/3 cup of white sugar, to make a lovely cream cheese sauce.

*Once your pie in done, taking from oven and arrange your Strawberries as seen in the lovely picture. I like to make a ring of Strawberries, pour on the cream cheese sauce, then add the center Strawberries:) 

*If you really feel like being fanciful, go pick a few Strawberry Flowers & Strawberry leaves from your garden or from the garden next door when they are not looking, and arrange them on your pie.  Chill for at least an Hour, then serve my Darlin Dears.


Once yall cook this Recipe, let me know what you think:)

I wish you all a lovely Weekend, & I send my love your way:)

Lilacs, Maple trees & the swing on which I swung,

On This Harvest Moon:)

Hello my darlin dears, wonderful meadow creatures that bay at the moon & you very helpful Gnomes that helped me find the well pump in the night to wash off since I had nearly buried myself in top-soil out in the garden... apparently i thought myself a seed that had the need to grow...

Miss Lamb your creature of the woods Farmer here,

Ooohhh art..... oh Harvest.... I have been in the thick of Both:)

....& both are going lovely:)

While creating some art yesterday in the wheat field, my cat Cotton decided to meander down the lovely story book path:) 

This very field will be cut today:) Then, my chickens will have a lovely time going through all off the chaff & straw, pick up little pieces of wheat & such:) 

I will also be able to take my truck out to the field and replenish all of the barn covering with fresh straw..... I am trying to get the barn ready for Ohio, since she will be bringing a baby cow into this sweet old world very soon:) 

I look forward to showing you all some of my new work and posting it oh so soon in my lovely store, so it might even could find a cottage home upon your walls:)

You loves have a lovely week,

I sure as the

Lavender, Cotton & a lovely spring picnic,

Hello my Darlin Dears, Wonderful meadow creatures that sleep next to the sheep at night & you adorable Gnomes who like to watch my milk cow Ohio nearly every second because she is about to give birth very soon,

Miss Lamb your farmer of the fanciful here,

As many of you might have already read, I am fortunate enough to be the Twenty-Something girl for lovely May... I like to think in a lovely way, April showers brought the may flowers:) I just adored the flower dress I got to wear for the shoot...

...with that, I wanted to show you just a few of the captures from the shoot:)

Bell was nearly asleep...

If you cuddle a Lamb long enough, they just can't help but doze off:)

...Or they just Nuzzle you:)

Gosh I love my sheep:)

...& here is a comical picture with some of my Strawberry harvest, Billy Balls & a Axe:)!!

hehe.... ooohhh goodness gracious...

I can only imagine what people think when they look at this:)

I suppose I was feeling more Wolf than Lamb that particular day:)

All of the captures were taken by the lovely & talented Bethany Young, with the amazing and very needed visual assistance of Kelsey Self over at Twenty-Something Magazine:)

Y'all go read the article right away:) I go into depth about the wolf part of me, my shows out of town & how I am possessed by my great-grandmother :) Lovely times:) 

I send love to each of you:) 

Axes, Trees & the lumberjack who wears green flannel shirts & serves me pancakes with maple syrup he harvested & cooked down himself,

Hey you... get out of the rain fluff ball:)

Hello my Darlin Dears, wonderful meadow creatures that like nesting in long forgotten clay pots & you wonderful Gnomes who ate 2 of the three pies I had made for mothers day (strawberry cream cheese pie),


Miss Lamb your flower adorned & potato harvesting farmer here,

Being a farmer & with that, trying to practice the most loving animal Husbandry possible, I get up a lot through the night to go and casually check on the homestead....

Here in lovely SW Oklahoma, we have been getting a lovely amount of rain... all of yesterday & yesterday night, it rained about a total of 2 1/2 inches... very cold rain at that...

Just two days ago, I became the mother too 30 baby day old chicks (welcome to the world baby chicks) & they went to go and live with the baby ducks:) They all quickly became great friends, but then the rain came....

Half of the baby duck/chicken coop is covered from the rain, & the other half is exposed to the lovely sunshine, & rain if it happens... I woke up at my normal 4:30 am & went out to check on the babies, and saw that two of the little ones were huddled next to one another and soaking to their little tiny baby bones...

I quickly scooped them up and questioned them as I ran into the house "Why did you little ones not go under the light with your friends?"

A little back story on these two... ever since they were hatched, they have been inseparable :) They would eat together, drink together, confront ducks together... all that best friends do... & now these two day old babies were standing in the rain together and nearly freezing themselves out of a spirit...

I ran inside and took out the blow dryer, where they stood under as if holy and absorbed the heat... I then took them over to my work desk and let them sleep in a bit of Lambs wool for an hour or so.. I was just hoping they were going to survive.... No sooner had I left the art studio did I hear cheeping from behind the door.. I walked back in to find the fluff balls eating and then staring at me:)

I hope they consider me part of the pack now:)

Here they are posing for my I-Pad camera on my art studio work desk... all dry now...
I think it says it all:) Best friends forever... Rain or Shine:)

I hope you all in the world of Spring are having great times and experiencing lovely Joy with your baby chickens & baby ducks. 

I hope you all have a wonderful mothers day:) In my family, we give tomato plants on mothers day:) I just adore traditions....

I send a kiss to each of your foreheads :)
