Cue the Music!

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..."  


Okay, so it doesn't take much to excite me :)   This year's selection is fantastic so it's going to take awhile to narrow the choices down.   Once the seeds have come in, I will post the selections on the produce page of our website Laingcroft Farm    If you are located in the metro Richmond area we plan to be a vendor at the Goochland Farmers Market and the Powhatan Farmers Market.   The second is a new market located at the Collier Company's Waterfall and Garden Shop on Route 60 in Powhatan, 2 miles past the Chesterfield County line.  

My other exciting news....I finally have a new laptop so I can go mobile!   Had one years ago, an old Toshiba that I gave to my son when he started high school.   Over the years he modified it and ultimately dismantled it.   Since he is now in his second year of Computer Engineering at VCU, I guess that worked out well, but I'm not letting him play with this one!  It's a lovely green (picture doesn't do it justice) Inspirion.  I also found a Microsoft fan base (and yes, I've added the doodling in silver's always a bad idea to put a pen in my hand!) that helps keep it from overheating.  The wonderful thing about having a laptop is now I can work on my stories, anytime, anyplace.  Even in the barn. 

Yes, that's right, I said in the barn.   I find it very soothing to sit in the barn after the animals have been bedded down for the night with their last hay rations.   There is just something magical about the whisper of hay pulled from the feeder, and the soft sounds of sheep contentedly chewing the dried grass, their misty breath sweet with memories of summer.  Some of my best inspiration strikes in the oddest places (barn, shower, car) and at the oddest times - most often when I'm trying to fall asleep!

So now that I've been a good girl and updated my's back to dreaming over all those seeds....

  1. I love that imagery of being in the barn. I never mind staying up with a ewe who is getting ready to lamb. The barn is such a peaceful, lovely place at that time.
