Aimee's homemade pizza pie

It's heaven for me when my wife doesn't work too hard at her professor job, because then I get more of her good cooking.

I'm a decent cook, but I tend to use up the staples that we grow ourselves, and so my own fare is plain and repetitive: pork and beans, lamb curries and chili, mashed potato, fries, bacon and eggs, stewed lamb, ham, pork and beans....

Aimee is much more flavorful. Here we have her homemade pizza dough with homemade pesto and homemade mozarella cheese slices. Only the tomatoes are shop-bought.

This pizza was so good, we ate it all in one sittings.

I say we, Kemosabe.

I mean, I ate it all in one sitting. Aimee had two slices. I ate the rest.

Another recent delight has been strawberry rhubarb-pie.

There should be a Bach "Ode to Rhubarb." If I were king, I'd commission a compose to write one.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
