Down on the Farm

I spent last evening with the Hygelund Family in Canby. Debi and I are getting ready for our 20th High School Reunion in Springfield on the 10th and 11th of August.

Their farm is buzzing as usual. Debi’s garden is amazing and she harvested Japanese eggplant, sweet onions, zucchini and beets and made a wonderful stir-fry with gorgonzola cheese (thanks for the leftovers).

They have a chicken coop! Do you know where eggs come from? It’s not in the cold section of your super-market! I walked out to the coop and opened up this hatch and inside about 6 nests were three wonderful eggs. Cool! For a city girl, it was pretty awesome.

I took home a ton of fresh herbs and veggies and a very colorful bouquet of wild flowers.

Thanks to the Hygelunds!
