My Mother’s Rhubarb

My mother enjoyed making rhubarb pie, and I am a big fan of strawberry rhubarb jam (looking forward to when we have our own strawberries). Andrew really likes rhubarb and ordered a special kind this spring, he says it’s smaller but sweeter. He’s cleaning the rhubarb now so I better get motivated and start looking up some recipes!

Put me in Coach…!

First day of baseball practice!

I am fairly convinced that Schwans has the best chocolate ice cream, especially after an 80 degree day of hoeing potatoes and baseball practice! The boys also enjoyed the orange pushems.

Gopher hunting!

He’s using his homemade bow and arrow. Oh dear. You can tell neither of his parents have gone hunting. A few years ago I read him a gem of a book, called Gopher Tails For Papa by Erling Nicolai Rolfsrud… such a darling book!

I let him know his legs may fall asleep before a gopher comes along.

Beef, it’s what’s for dinner!

And supper and lunch and breakfast… By the time we’re through with this butcher steer our children should be a couple of inches taller and quite a few pounds heavier. I think this just might be one of my favorite things of farm / ranch life… raising our own home raised beef! Bom, bom, bom (play Aaron Copland’s Rodeo Hoe Down).

Taking the ponies off the picket lines and putting them away for the night.

Baking powder biscuits

Now that summer is here I told the boys I’m going to try to at least go 14 days without repeating a pastry at breakfast. Thus far, the breakfasts have consisted of chocolate chip muffins, toaster strudels, and baking powder biscuits. The one common item is eggs.

He loves helping the cook!
