FOLK *Give-Away*


Yep, that's right.
I am giving away a copy of FOLK magazines' debut issue.
I ordered two from the BARN HOUSE BOYS just so that I could give one away!
I have a huge magazine problem....
I still have the first issue of Country Living I bought in about 1998.
I look at magazines as a book and I still have my original copy of 
'Little House in the Big Woods' that I got when I was 7.  True Story.


Now, I don't keep every magazine that I get but I do have quite a collection.
And I know a good magazine when I see one...this one is good.
FOLK is a new magazine that is chock full of primitive down-home country goodness.
All the things that this farm girl loves....and wants to share with you!
Soo...there a few things you can do to win.
Leave me a comment.

Setting Up

I thought I would share just a few pictures....


This man must love me because he does things for me that he 
doesn't quite get why he does for me...
like hang 16 ft ladders from the front of our patio for a booth.  
*he must be smitten*  HA HA


It's amazing what you can do with branches
 off of an aspen tree, some weeds, and a few curly willow sticks.


You can turn any old ladder into something a little tree houseish.


Our Uncle Robert is the official Fallow Field Farm Marketplace weed gatherer.
I swear if there is a blooming or pretty weed growing somewhere close he knows just
where to find it and is happy (I think) to go and hunt them down for me!


I wish I had a better picture of this but it was AWESOME!  
I love it when you have an idea and it looks just like you envisioned it.
This sign is a gathering of vintage letters I got from Etsy....
I took an old piece of barnwood fence we had laying around, 
painted it with layers of different colors of paint,
 weathered it a little and it turned out the perfect shade of *green*.
The whole thing was just so dang pretty that it's still sitting atop the arbor...
I just don't have the heart to take it down yet. *smile*  
Those weeds made a most beautiful bouquet full of all 
that autumn has to offer with a little curly willow stuck in here and there
and, of course, one of my favorite things....pumpkins!


The vintage black bicycle gets brought out this time of year
 because I like to pretend that some pretty gal 
rode up on it with her basket full of flowers and came to visit us. 
*wink and a smile*

Well there are a few...there are many more and I will be putting them on here and there over the next couple of weeks.  I want to show you the awesome goods that my vendors brought and some more pictures of booths and the *farm*.

It's Chili Time!

It seems like my love for cooking really shows up in the fall...
So, one day in early fall every year, 
I get out the soup pot
and make Aunt Evelyn's chili recipe. 
 It lasts us through the winter because I 
make a double batch and freeze a bunch.
Today was chili day....I love chili day. 
 It means a good homecooked meal that everyone will eat.
  Even the little one who doesn't eat much of anything will eat chili!
 And, to top it all off, it was the new Amazing Race day too!
We love the Amazing Race around here.

Aunt Evelyn's Chili

3 Cups Red Beans, I use Pinto beans                                 6 cups water
2 or 3 bay leaves                                                                2 lbs ground beef
1/2 lb pork sausage                                                            3 large onions, chopped
3 minced garlic cloves                                                       2-1/2 quarts tomatoes
3-8 oz cans tomato sauce                                                   1 Tbsp chili powder
2 small chili peppers                                                          3/4 tsp curry powder
1 Tbsp  powdered cumin                                                   1 Tbsp salt
1/4 tsp tobasco

Wash beans thoroughly and cook until tender with water and bay leaves.  Brown meat, onions and garlic.  Add beans, along with remaining ingredients.  Simmer together 1 hour.  Even better the next day!

There you go! 
Simple as can be...
if you choose to double it make sure to have a big ole soup pot.
It makes ALOT of chili.  yummy, yum, yum.

Later this week I will be doing a fun give-away...watch for it!

Humanitarian Project


Mr. Fallow Field Farm's little brother and sister recently deployed to Iraq. 
She for the first time and him for his second round.
I received an email from his sweet wife that I will share with you.

Here is something you may not know...
not all soldiers have families who send them things.
They may not get any care packages or even letters
for the year that they are deployed.

So if you are willing and want to help here is your chance!
Bring your goods to the show.
We will have a place set up for you to donate items
and we will also collect any monetary donations.

Thank you for your help!
Support our troops!!



Hi Everyone!

I wanted to let you know about a humanitarian project I am 
doing for Eric's unit, in case you were interested in helping. 
I am gathering toiletries and treats to send over. 
Some of the men in the unit are on bases where they have 
closed the PX and they are unable to get these 
things unless they are sent to them. 

Here is a list of items I am collecting: 
shampoo, conditioner, soap, body wash, 
razors, Q-tips, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. 
Also, I am going to send over non-melting treats for 
the soldiers to put in their packs. Finally, I am also
 in need of money to ship the items over. 
If you can help in any way it would be GREATLY appreciated. 

I am planning on shipping the majority of it over
 in October, but if you have stuff lying around, 
I want to send over a small shipment ASAP 
so Eric can get it out to the guys that need it!

Thanks so much!
T
