We have visitors who find our backyard yummy.

Baby piglets at the farm.

Mike and I have been taking care of the farm this weekend and we got to enjoy the birthing of baby piglets this afternoon.

The mama pig decided to leave her designated shelter and build her own nest just a couple of hours before she gave birth. We decided to let her do her thing and she ended up building a comfy big den to give birth. It was fascinating to witness it all.

That's the way things happen at the farm. All the animals have lots of room to roam around freely and express their animal instincts.

We watched over her for a while, brought her food, hay and water but she never moved except to make it easier for her baby pigs to keep nursing. So far I counted ten babies. They're adorable.

Harvesting calendula flowers.

Calendula flowers are not only beautiful and cheerful but very healing. This is why so many baby products are made with them.

I just got to see the birth of a baby sheep

Actually, her mama was having difficulty giving birth so I assisted the farmer-in-chief in the midwife process.

And I got to name the little lamb. Her name is Sunshine because she was born on the first sunny day we've had after many days of rain. The lamb and her mama are doing quite well.

A basket of freshly laid farm eggs and picked calendula flowers from the garden. This was given to me by the two most adorable little farm girls ever! They are such a gift. Real food for my soul and my body.

I'm glad I discovered this little guy and didn't eat him.

He was perfectly camouflaged in the kale leaf so he could have been easily part of the salad. Yikes!

One of the many gifts of spring

A big cup of fresh mint tea is simple and yet incredibly gratifying any time of day. I feel so giddy when there is an abundance of fresh herbs. They can elevate food and drinks to a whole new level of foodie nirvana. 

I have to confess that I didn't learn to like mint until Mike and I went to Morocco, where mint tea is abundant and always offered everywhere you go. And now a cup of mint tea with a touch of honey (hold the green tea leaves) warms my soul.
