Aunt Eunice here. After all the talk in the last two letters about relaxing this summer, I’m afraid to say on Saturday I was as busy as a one-armed paper hanger! Summer Garden Party was a lovely event though and we had lots of visitors. Guests enjoyed making garden inspired art, tasting delicious foods made with fresh herbs, touring the kitchen garden and trying herb breads at the bake oven. Here is a picture of the pot holder my 7 year old granddaughter made, her first real sewing project.
Part of the fun was trying new recipes out like the lemon/basil cake and lavender lemonade. I was happy to be the taste-tester. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it! Here is the Lavender Lemonade recipe for you to try. Here on the farm we make a virgin version. Up to you what version you want to make, just remember, don’t drink alcohol and then go out and try to drive the buggy home! The horse doesn’t always know the way!! Lavender Lemonade
If you missed Summer Garden Party that’s a shame, but there are other activities and events coming up. This Saturday is Children’s Day and there will all sorts of activities for young folk to try such as chores like Laundry Day, crafts to make, and games to play. There is no additional charge for Children’s Day.
On the Fourth of July we will have some extra activities to honor that special day like a History Bee and the reading of the Declaration of Independence. Stay tuned for more on that.
I find it hard to believe we are already talking about July! My, my, time does fly. Don’t wait too long to come out and see us. Summer is over in a flash and you deserve a chance to relax, explore the farm, have fun and learn something new. That’s all for now, folks.
Hope to see you soon. Take care. Aunt Eunice
