  1. Your lovely photographs bring inspiration on a cold Iowa night. I just purchased your new cookbook and use it as I look through my seed catalogues.

  2. Happy New Year, Susie! I love the look back at 2014. Such gorgeous photos and gorgeous food. I don’t comment often, but I am always so happy to see a new post from you in my inbox. (Those savory rustic tarts last week all looked SO good.) Thanks for taking the time to share your wonderful farm with us – and here’s to a bountiful, beautiful 2015!

    P.S. I have that same blue and red rooster tray. 🙂

  3. Hi Rosemary, and thank you–just resolving a spam problem and getting back to answer comments–so sorry!

  4. Hi Susan–That is so funny that you have the same tray! Thank you for writing, and I am so sorry that I had a spam problem and am only now uncovering my comments. Glad you’re enjoying the blog!
