So fun! I've been looking for an address stamp. I'll be looking through her shop.

I'd love to read more about your garden...I'd love to visit your garden! ;)

I've been oooogling at custom library book plate stamps! And I'm inheriting a tiny flock of chickens in two months, too! Perhaps beginners guide to chickens? megan(dot)doddridge(at)gmail(dot)com Also I made Danielle Burkleos quilt and kind of had a fan-girl moment when you commented. Blush!

I know this is completely off topic and nothing to do with the blog post, but I love your fingernails! Are they Jamberrys?

We put our house on the market yesterday with the intentions of finding property and taking our three kids to start our OWN farm! I would love to read any tips you have for farming for beginners! :)

I'd love to know what plants to grow for someone like me that definitely does not have a "green thumb!" I'd love to grow some healthy vegetables for my family!

More chickens! colomama@gmail.com

Tara said...

Love the packaging! How do you feed your chickens?

Dakota Hurley said...

Okay- I'm dying to know how you do farm chores and look fab!?! I am a big believer in your hashtag dressinhappinessdaily... But I have chores to do and never know how to be cute, but not walk around with dirt on my knees, chicken poop on my shoes... Chores are twice daily around here for animals and summer chores... Well we all know those are never ending ;) I would love a daily rhythem post! ;)
And I need a stamp for my egg packaging as well so I appreciate the discount code if I don't win!

I'd love a "where to start" kind of post for garden/chickens. Wesort of jumped in to it last year, and I think we're getting it, but I'd love to know more.

Could you please introduce us to all your animals on a blog post? Cats, dogs, chickens-Everybody or Everyanimal:) Amy kahwingate@yahoo.com

Since it is almost strawberry time - how about your favorite recipe using strawberries or preserving strawberries.

Love your packaging! I'm a sucker for any cute packaging, and yours is no exception! Lauren has some really cute designs! Farming topics...maybe some info on your day to day life on the farm. I love what little nuggets you post, and would love to see more...

I'd like to read about how you guys preserve food. The farm I'm currently apprenticing for has CSA members who buy all their food for the whole year from the farm and preserve it for winter! What if everyone knew how to do that? Local farms would thrive!

Oh your chicks! I love them. I'm quite into chicken as well - especially silkies. One day, I'll have some in my garden to be.

I would love to read about your daily farm chores--what goes into keeping your farm running each day.

I'd do enjoy a post on the cut flowers you grow and how you combine/arrange them. Also, trading about a typical farm chore day would be interesting (but maybe just to me. ..ha!).

Would love a personalized chicken stamp! We're chicken people too.

Those baby chicks!! Do you know anything about bee keeping? I'm super interested in that.

I'd also love to know more about your chickens (what types you have), and how you sell your eggs.

Everyone has such great suggestions!
I love your gift posts, so a farm gift post would be fun.
Thanks!

I would love to hear much more about the dirty side of farming and what tips you have to overcome them/help deal with. ie we have chickens and it's no so fun in the winter, when they're all cooped (ha ha) up and pecking at each other because they won't go near the snow. Or how do you prevent water from freezing - practical tips like that. Or when one is picked on by all the rest. Crops destroyed by bugs - natural pest control in the garden. Etc. I love the beauty of your blog, but I know it's often not nearly as pretty in day to day life.....I don't need to see all the mud and such, but would love some of those practical tips. Thanks:-)

Terri said...

Anything to do with your chickens (we have 10) or your garden. Especially natural pest control.

How lovely!

I'd love to hear more about how you take care of your chickies. We only have 3, but I'm always curious to know what people feed their hens and such.
