A Festival, A Feast, & A Blown-out Knee...

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

Hi everyone! Wanted to let ya'll know that we will have the farm open on Saturday, October 3rd! We may not have lavender in our fields, but we'll sure have pumpkins! Our neighbor, Wild Boar Farms on Luckenbach Road, will be hauling over a truckload of fresh grown hill country pumpkins. Stop by and pick up your Jack-O-Lanterns for the season AND hang out and visit with us for a while; we'll let you know all about growing lavender in the Hill Country, AND - well, what we're still trying to figure out about farming lavender in the hill country ...

Jack will be happy to talk about farming, and I'll be chatting with anyone who will listen about my inspiration of Hummingbird Farms Aromatherapy Body Care.



It will be a busy weekend in Johnson City! Five other area lavender farms will be opening their gates, AND the locals will be preparing for a feast complete with live & silent auctions and entertainment at the 10th Annual Wild Game Dinner held at the Blanco County Fairgrounds in Johnson City.

If you can make it out this way, please go to www.johnsoncitytexaschamber.com or call 830-868-7684 for more information and to check out the other farms that will be open.

So - when it rains, it pours! Literally. We haven't had rain ALL summer and FINALLY after months of waiting for Mother Nature to give us a drink of her cloud juice, she decided to bless us with a bucket or two of the stuff. AND - in addition to that......

Get ready for this one.....

Jack and I went hiking in Big Bend National Park over Labor Day weekend and I blew out my knee. For real. I severed my ACL and tore my meniscus. But - this is a whole 'nother story.... I'll share more details later. In the meantime, I am scheduled for surgery on Thursday, 9/24. So - it looks like I'll be wobbling around out here at our place on the 3rd, and will probably just find a cozy place to sit with my leg propped up...... But anyhow - we sure hope to see you!
