    Crop Time & Going With the Flow

    It’s May.  There is a fervor around the countryside- fields are plowed, harrowed, seeded; rounds are made checking on hay crops. It’s the time of year to, “Go- full throttle.” The longest day of the year is nearing. You’re thinking if I’m going to do it, I’d better do it now. The other side of this energy that spins thru

    On Pigs, Instinct & Flavor of Life

    Hold on to your seats, I’ve got some pig ponderings. As the warmth of spring reaches deep into the ground and air; grasses grow and insects emerge. There is food everywhere; for a pig, that is.  A little time spent watching a pig gives one a feel for their instincts. Pigs have snouts and

    We Scout- Feasting Never Stops

    I love the atmosphere over at Scoutie Girl. It is fun & inspiring. Today is “We Scout Wednesdays”. I thought I would participate. We’re sharing a favorite blog or artist.

Up here on Gatski Mountain, there’s abundant milk, butter and of course, sausage.  Sausage & Biscuits is a favorite. I like to serve it with some seasonal greens sauteed in garlic. I understand that Sausage & Biscuits is an old world
