Farm Pup, Peary's 2nd Birthday!

after about 40 photo attempts this was the best one I got
Peary.  

He's that wiggly, jumping, bouncy excitement when I walk in the door, and paws on the dashboard, wet nose to the window, "Oh my goodness!!! We're going on an adventure! We're going!!!!" and put down your phone and play with me.

He's a daily reminder/require-er of taking walks.  We both love walks.

He's also the reason the window by the couch, that he looks out, resembles frosted glass even if I clean it weekly.

He's my Pelaton cheerleader, sitting in front of the bike (note: I don't own an actual Pelaton bike...I'm just one of those sad souls with a cheap bike off Amazon and the Pelaton app but if someone did get me a Pelaton for Christmas I would not feel body shamed at all but instead fall to the floor and scream Thank You! If you don't know what I'm talking about google the response to their latest commercial) the entire time staring at me, most likely completely confused by what I'm doing. 

My Peary, my littlest love and best boy, you made it to two...now if you'd only stop eating every single thing you see, that would be great!  

And now that I think about it, I'll add a "kind of" to the best boy since my comforter, two pairs of shoes, countless rolls of poop bags (apparently they're really fun to shred), and the trash can have all fallen victim to 15 pounds of mischief! 

Here's to many more years of snuggles, car rides, mischief, treats, carhartt puppy coat wearing, and farm walks (well I walk, Peary sprints!).

Fall Fruit Layflat: PawPaws, Quince, + Apples

pawpaws, quince, golden delicious apples AND our very fun pink fleshed apples


When I think of the bulk of the best sweet treats from the farm I think of summer: peaches, watermelon, berries, etc.

I wanted to show the fall a little love too by highlighting our fall fruits: apples, pawpaws, and quince.

The second two most people have never seen or eaten and the first is literally everywhere.

PawPaws are the nation's largest native fruit and are similiar to a banana in taste, and how it ripens. They also turn an appealing shade of black when they're really ripe. I said they tasted like bananas but really a cross between bananas and mangos with an avocado texture.

Quince are so beautiful. I just like the way they look! As far as taste they are tart...like a lemon tart. They are used to make quince paste, candied quince, mixed in as a companion to apples in Apple Pie and I recently saw a quince up-side down cake on pinterest. I'm intrigued and will probably be testing that recipe.
