Farmgirl Friday blog hop #75

 Welcome to week #75 of the ORIGINAL Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop! I feel like celebrating! For those of you who are new to the hop or to my blog here's a little back story about how the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop began in 2011. I wanted to create a place where we bloggers could gather up once a week to share our daily doin's in the kitchen or craft room, hen-house or greenhouse, city balcony or backyard farmyard! And gather we have! Seventy-five weeks sounds like a long time but it sure doesn't feel like it! That's what happens when you're having fun. You're there when a fellow blog sister's bread doesn't rise and when she harvests her first tomato! You prop each other up during new adventures like learning to keep Bees and Chickens or milking your first goat! You share useful and clever home-keeping tips and  homemaking wisdom straight from your heart! 
Pretend with me for a moment? Imagine what an " in person" celebration would be like. Sort of a farmgirl meet and great if you will. I picture us gathered under the shade of a large tree perhaps on a farm, in a pasture or a beautiful garden. Long tables covered in red and white checked table cloths are covered with YOUR delicious Farmgirl Recipes. Since it's almost fall I've set out blooming pumpkins as our centerpiece's. I see smiles everywhere, friendships being made and our tummy's hurt from so much laughter.
After all, we're in good company! As the day turns to dusk we exchange addresses, and phone numbers and promise to stay in touch via our blogs and Facebook. Who knows? Maybe one day it will happen! In the mean time I promise to continue hosting every week if you promise to keep dropping by! 
 I can't tell you how much you all inspire me with each and every entry. Thank YOU for making the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop what it is today. A warm, inspiring and growing community of  talented, generous and kind bloggers!
I'm blessed to be on the receiving end of all you share here every Friday! 

I must also mention a very special THANK YOU to my bloggin'  farmgirl sis on the West Coast...Heidi ,of My Simple Country Living and White Wolf Farmgirl Blog for co-hosting with me every week! Somehow she manages to post on both of her blogs even when I send her the linky code late at night!

We love meeting new blogging friends so don't hold out on us! Link up and play a little farmgirl show and tell right here every Friday!

Believe it or not, my cut flower beds are still brimming with blooms! 

The pumpkin on a stick is ready for cutting for use in flower arrangements and fall decorating.

Ornamental Eggplant ( pumpkin on a stick )

If ever you doubted growing dahlias fugetaboutit... These flowers just keep on blooming day after day from about early July to the first frost ( which we haven't had yet )!

I cut this bucket of blooms yesterday! See the cute little orange pumpkin in the top left corner!

See? Still blooming!

 Check out this weeks late-bloomers up close and personal...




This farmgirl is still in flower land and that's a good thing. I've started  the first chapter of my book "  Yard Flowers" It's going to be a lot of work but in the end I hope it will be an inspiration to budding flower lovers everywhere.

 Now it's your turn! What's happening in your farmgirl world?

Here are the rules for the Farmgirl/guy Blog Hop!

1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!

2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.

3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

Be sure to leave a note if you're new to the hop!
 We want to get to know you better! Have a great week and I'll see you on the hop! 

PS. Let's gather more farmgirls for our hop! Scroll down and copy the code ( where it says get the code here ) for this hop and place it in your blog post.

Your blooms are beautiful! I enjoy seeing them. Mine are almost completely gone. Of coarse I have not been watering anymore the electric bill to run the pump and the air this summer was over our budget so my blooms have came to an early death. Have a great weekend!

Farmgirl Heidi said...

Happy Farmgirl Friday Deb! Your flower garden is AMAZING! I love every beautiful bloom. That pumpkin on a stick is way too cute too. Congratulations on 75 weeks! May Farmgirl Friday continue to grow and inspire. I love the new header too.


Lynn said...

Your dahlias are spectacular! Also love the pumpkin on a stick, I've never seen them in person, they are so cute! Hope my Halloween post is ok for your theme, if not please simply delete. Happy Friday:@)

I love the red and yellow flowers in your tea/coffee pot! So pretty.

Becky Elmuccio said...

Those pumpkins on a stick are adorable! You may have gotten me to bite the bullet and do some dahlias next year.

Sunny Simple Life said...

You truly are a master gardener. Your dahlias are stunning. I have one purple one that comes up every year. I don't have to dig it up as it is mild here in the winters. It has been reblooming for about 10 years. You make me want to plant some more next year.

Good morning! Just found your blog-hop and added my blog-post this week on gardening in suburbia. I probably should have waited until #76, but was too excited! By the way, your flowers are gorgeous! Blessings!
