First harvest of fresh pease from the garden (grown from seed I harvested an dried from last years seeds)
Pasta and Pea dinner
Cook some penne, reserving 1/4 cooking liquid and drain. Put the penne, a bit of butter, salt, and the fresh peas in the bowl and mix. Add fresh asparagus and any herbs you have!!
After many weeks of hard work designing a new label, I am please to announce the official launch of the rebranding of my company as FOWL under Freedom Run Farm. I hope in the near future to inform readers of locations to buy the Farm’s products.
As always, comments are welcomed:
While this may be a day late, it is only because I took the time yesterday to spend with my mother… Not on social media.
To all the mothers, grandmothers, and every woman out there, it is a time to celebrate you and all that you do for your family, friends, society, etc.
To my mother: thank you for being loving, supporting, and an inspiration as I go through the troubling teenage years and discover who I am. To you I raise a glass: cheers!
Sorry to everyone about not having posted in awhile….school is a whirlwind right now.
Anyways…yesterday on NPR I was listening to a very fascinating program on Antibiotic resistant bacteria in poultry and meat raised conventionally and given antiobiotics. Read or listen to it here! More and more studies are coming out that parallel this one—further proof of why it is important to buy Certified Organic, and local! And I will reiterate again that it is not snobby, or “foodies”, or “health gurus” who just buy organic, but people who care about taking care of themselves, their family, and the world.
I would love to hear some of your opinions on this growing debate; post below:
What do you feel are the biggest challenges to buying organic?
Why do you choose to buy organic/not buy organic?
which would you rather eat?

Today was the first Louisville Girls Idea Festival and it was such an inspiration; it is always important to have motivating speakers and local icons to help young women and girls to navigate this tricky world.
I got to meet Heather Howell from Rooibee Tea (which by the way is delicious and will soon be available in cases at Costco!!). She was shared with the room some wonderful advice about being a businesswoman, a mother, and a wife: that it is all possible and rewarding. Her presentation really gave me an extra needed boost of confidence as I work on developing my portfolio and labels for my business!!!
Also, congratulations to all the girls who put on the festival. Your hard work paid off!!
… Lady bugs and heirloom salad!!!
Even when your day sucks there can be some happiness
