It's a FAMILY tradition...

It's a FAMILY tradition... 

YIPPPEEEE... the time has came, you know... that time when ALL the family come HOME for Christmas!?  Those moments, that are surrounded by opportunities to share LOVE... to create a NEW tradition OR to carry on an OLD tradition! 

And WHAT a better tradition... than an evening spent gathered in the kitchen, with family & friends rolling out dough!  As the carols are sung & the glow of lights TWINKLE through the window, everyone is merrily adding their personal touch to each HOMEMADE, sugar cookie!

AND look at what JUST so happened joined
the MarketPlace... a set of VINTAGE, Holly Cookie Cutters, with ONLY one set

Happy Baking... from the farmhouse!

October has dawned...

Good Morning...
it looks to be a GRANDE day ahead,
here in Kentucky!
The sun has risen & the temps
have proven to be divine!

OCTOBER has dawned,
September is ONLY a memory...
JUST like the REAL life of living...
the present, the future & the memories!
October brings about SO much
in her '31' days; the days offer less
working hours, the time rolls back to
a slower pace & temperatures fall!
It's a moment to savor & to ENJOY
the transition that takes us into yet,
another season, JUST as the season's
of life cometh!

Hoping this day holds colorful moments
throughout each passing hour!

Sending along the... SWEETEST,
autumn blessings!

Tis the SUMMER season...

Tis the season for...
Blackberry Pickin'

And with that being said... 
I'm here to share a DELIGHTFUL, summer
recipe that will surely bring JOY to the table!

'Blackberry Pudding'
from my kitchen to YOURS... 

First... cream 1/3 cup margarine
with 1 cup sugar, until light & fluffy.

Add 1 cup milk... 

Sift... 2 cups 'self-rising' flour...

Add flour & mix well... 

Batter is NOW ready for pouring... 

Optional... I prefer to use an iron skillet
when baking cobblers/puddings, BUT
you may have a different preference/choice.
Either way... coating them with a non-stick
staple will result in a more, friendly result!

HERE... I have chosen to use REAL lard
& butter combined... LOVE the tasty, crust
it gives... & this can be used in ANY
baking recipe!

Pour into your baking dish, skillet, pan, etc...

Scoop up your farm, FRESH berries...
layering them about the batter.

HERE... I have prepared...
2 cups boiling water, adding 1 cup of sugar,
stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
Then drizzle over your combined
mixture of berries & batter.

*NOTE:  I, personally ONLY use
half (1 cup) of this glaze... for one;
this size skillet refuses to hold any more...
two; I have found 1 cup makes it JUST
the right consistency & doesn't over-power
the taste!

Folks... it's NOW ready to go into the oven...
Bake at 350 degrees ~ for 50 minutes,
depending ALL upon the oven's personality!

And TAA-DAA...
this scrumptious site will be your end result!

And YES, it's truly in sight of a cobbler,
BUT by adding the glaze, it knocks
your taste-buds...
out-of-the-ballpark in flavor! 

DEFINITELY a must have for your
next summer gathering...

JUST be sure to seek out a LOCAL farmer...
& support them that take pride in growing what
nature has allowed... with hard work, sweat &
loving care to delivery YOU a fine product!

SWEET blessings... from the farm!
And PLEASE, do visit me from time to time...
you NEVER know what's about to happen!

Independence Day... CELEBRATION

'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner
in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave!
~Francis Scott Key

SWEET greetings, from the farm...
an 'Independence' greeting at that!

As the 4th rolls around...
we all are anticipating the gathering of
family & friends, whether it's YOU
being the hostess or YOU'RE
contributing to the feast at
someone else's home! 
And along with this week
up til the celebration... there are the
decisions & preparation
of WHAT to serve/offer OR bring
for family & friends to feast on!

Well, here today... I'm offering...
one of my TRIED & TRUE, side dishes!
One that is all-too-well known, especially
throughout the grilling season!
BUT, there are several ingredients in
which I have taken upon myself to add
& they are SURE to make a difference!
SO, let's begin... shall we...

'Spicy Grilled Cabbage'

Prepare cabbage, slice into 8 wedge pieces, 
placing on a double layer of foil.  Cut one, large
'Vidalia' onion into wedges, scattering about.
Remove seed & chop several
'Corno Di Toro Giallo'  peppers & add.
Add FRESH garlic, to YOUR taste ~
Slather with REAL butter & give the
ingredients a drizzle of olive oil, with
a drop of hot sauce, again, YOUR taste!
 Sprinkle with mineral salt, crushed, black pepper
& paprika.  And DON'T let barbecue sauce 
be restricted with only meat... CABBAGE
is delish smothered in a specialty sauce
as well!

Cover & seal foil... throw on the grill 
before hand, to allow for complete tenderness... 
unless you parboil the cabbage, first!
Time will vary upon grills & temp... 

ENJOY, each & every bite...
Being here in the 'Bluegrass State',
as well as MANY other states... outdoor
festivities will be high on the agenda!
Cook-Outs, Barbecue's, Porch Parties...
will be hopping to the tune of music,
laughter & popping firework!

SO let's NOT 
forget about the center of those tables,
this weekend!  Adding FRESH-CUT flowers 
TRULY does something for the soul!

Here at 'Beehind Thyme Farm & Garden'...
we will be adding SUNFLOWERS to 
mason jars, wrapped in burlap with flags
tucked in each one... NOW that's sure
to spread some CHEER!

Here's to... 
Hoping EACH of YOU a happy & safe...
Independence Day!

SIMPLE Garden Days...

Oh... Happy Day!

Sweet... GREETINGS from the farm!

Spring has definitely SPRUNG about the gardens here, & the
WEEDS have taken on a lead, that seems ALMOST
unapproachable to JUST get in position to control
the take-over!  Especially when the intent is to maintain
the grounds chemical-FREE!  
This DAILY job involves; endless hours, knee pad, garden gloves, 
a set of  'Corona ~ Garden Tools'
 (PLEASE, visit the link, to learn more),
apron, floppy, brimmed hat... OR scarf & a tall, glass
of sweet tea in the distance!
Volunteers are WELCOME... ;D

And of course, we are DELIGHTED 
with Nature's own... with the return of spring ALWAYS
bring the Robin's in for nesting & nurturing their young!

SWEET blossoms are standing tall as the spring
days go about... such as the ole-fashion... 'Bleeding Heart', one
in which bring you to the days of long ago, whether it be
your mother's garden OR grandmother... it was & STILL

today is a MUST for the shade garden!

Hoping this day finds YOU well & on your way to the garden... with an IMPORTANT reminder... 
that TODAY is 'The National Day of Prayer'...
'One Voice United in Prayer'!

Blessings... from my garden to YOURS!

Spoken 2 My Heart...

Greetings... from the garden shoppe, dear friends!

Stopping in to share a powerful verse that was spoken
to my heart this morning from 'My Apron Pocket'... hoping it brings life
to YOU as well!

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.   
1 Thessalonians 5:17

Sharing from... ©'The Apron Pocket'

HEART-FELT words from ©'The Apron Pocket'

It's quarter after noontime, a time zone here 
on the farm... that seems to be appropriate for savoring
a cup of hot coffee with EXTRA hazelnut cream!  

My body tells me that aging is NOT for me to question 
anymore & to handle it with care, as opposed to the days
of when the energy/adrenaline would surpass 
the moments that required to be filled!

 NOW, I faintly here those words, my precious
mother would often say, 'there will be a slowing down
season, listen to what your body is telling you'!

I look ALL around these 4 small acres here...
that has grown to out-weigh what my hands 
can offer... then I look toward heaven to remind myself  
that... the things which are seen are temporal.

While we look not at the things
which are seen, but at the things which are 
not seen: for the things which are seen 
are temporal; but the things which are not seen 
are eternal.    2 Corinthians 4:18

 Hope these words bring comfort wherever
they may be needed... & REMEMBER
satan blinds; God gives light!

SWEET blessings, from the farm...

Stylin' In The Garden...

The 'NEW' garden fashion...

JUST wondering how many hours could a body
possibly accomplish in the garden... stylin' in these SWEET babies?
There would be plenty of moments using
the hoe & shovel as leaning tools, instead
of gardening tools!

For NOW... they are JUST garden decor! :)

Hoping you a LOVELY day in the garden!
