Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Mini Counter-Scape

Even though it's April Frog Hollow Farm has been burning wood in the wood stove to keep things comfy and cozy. 

This little corner of my kitchen counter has some jars filled with cookies and granola bars and nuts along with a little covered cake stand filled with Anytime Oatmeal Cookies. There's some really cute clip art that you can use to cover a small oatmeal carton with to house the cookies.  I just couldn't get it to print true to size.  The large platter standing in the corner is an Italian ceramic and that little Farberware coffee pot is just right for FHFB and I.  When we have a crowd over for dinner we need to use our much larger coffee pot.

 These photos make it look like wintertime more than spring - but that's the kind of weather we've been having. 

Looking forward to sunnier skies and warm breezes. 

Our tiny little daffodils have bloomed down in FHFB's vegetable garden. 

Aren't they adorable?

Ciao, bella!!!!
