Special visit from College Possible on Give to the Max Day 🙂
I’ve moved! Not houses (heavens, no). But if you’ve been following me at littlefarmhouseinthebigcity.blogspot.com, this is the new place to be. The blog is undergoing a bit of a facelift as I make the transition, but I’ll continue updates about the farmhouse, share recipes I’m trying and tips I’m learning about home ownership.
If you follow me via RSS, the subscription should have switched over automatically. If you’re seeing the “I’m moving” post instead of this one, though, drop me a note and we’ll see if we can get it sorted out (or try http://feeds.feedburner.com/lfitbc or http://www.littlefarmhouseinthebigcity.com/feed/ in your favorite RSS reader). If you’re one of my email subscribers, stay tuned for a new email subscription option coming soon. Friends with WordPress blogs, time for us to get together and geek out.

And my lawn has looked great most of the summer thanks to the fancy new mower/mulcher! You win some you lose some.
Here are a few pics from this weekend’s casual harvest. I got a number of tomatoes and peppers a few weeks back, and a lot of the plants haven’t yielded anything (lemon cucumbers, broccoli, chard, brussels sprouts, beets).
