|The Simple Farm|
Heidi is checking out the fridge to see what's inside for sale. Everything is so fresh. I wasn't going home right away so I didn't want to buy any perishables.
Grano de Vida. I first met her when I went on Arcadia's Edible Garden Tour last month. She offered samples of her breads and bagels and ...I loved them. She's the nicest person and someone I know I could be friends with. We have that heart connection through our faith.
Michael and Lylah are Christians. It's interesting how they have returned to working the land. I noticed a Scripture on Michael's Facebook page from 1 Thessalonians 4: 11-12:
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
Wise advice from the Apostle Paul and one we could all learn from, I believe.
part one of my visit to The Simple Farm, I failed to mention that she was handing each one of us sorrel, an herb. She had us taste it. I can't say that I remember ever eating an herb like this but it was good. That's Lylah. Listen but apply. Try new things. Experiment with cooking. Use fresh herbs. I love that about her. Going from a designer label gal to a farmer has been quite an adventure but she seems very content.
It's a bit contagious. I'm working on my own garden and getting lots of great ideas. I already have a basil plant and I use it when I'm cooking.
So if you live in Arizona, you must stop by and visit The Simple Farm one Thursday to see for yourself. I would suggest checking out Lylah's blog for updates and events they host. I know that I will be returning for sure.
Blessings and love,
