Here's the story: I wrote a post about a farm dinner we went to back in September. A couple of months later I got an email from a girl in Georgia telling me her sister had read that post and decided to try to get an apprenticeship at this same farm. The sister, Abby, got the job and promptly moved out here. I met her a couple of weeks later at the farmer's market. She is sweet as pie, and I'm so flattered I had anything to do with her coming here in the first place!
We had her over to the house the other night and it's a toss up as to who liked her most: Bryan (who was was totally won over by her knowledge of gardening, raising chickens and keeping bees....and who invited her to come be an apprentice at Green Acres!), C-Man who led her around the yard like his personal pet, JuJu who was reaching out for Abby to hold her by the end of the evening (and called her "mama"!!??!), or me who found her to be totally girlfriend material within the first 3 seconds.
I may have been slightly swayed by the gift basket she brought (pictured at the top of this post), with all sorts of goodies from the farm and from other vendors at the farmer's market. JuJu was especially curious about the edible flowers in the basket.....Taking a little nibble of one of the petals......
And, not liking it so much! :)
