Good Evening everyone.. 
Hope you had a great weekend.. 
Spring has arrived here in the Maritimes along with all the doings that come along with it.. 
The famous Pollett River Run was on Saturday.. 
Terry and I took a drive up to the farm and spied a bit of action along the way.. smile.. 

This is a real country deal... 
You can see for yourselves Here..

Charlie found it all very entertaining.. smile.. 

The farm is greening up.. 

Another field all ploughed up and ready for Spring.. 
I checked out my herbs and there are several growing back but I lost a few, too.. 
Parsley, Lavender and I think my Lovage have not returned.. 
But I will just replant.. 
I have some growing here at home now.. 
Basil, Sage, Rosemary and such.. 
We hope to start going up for a day at a time starting this week as the house was nice and warm when we were there.. 
I am hoping Terry will paint the bedrooms and I need to clean through before we move there for the Summer.. 


Plants are growing.. 
My brother-in-law gave me 3 seeds to plant for 50 pound cabbages.. 
Just waiting... 

And my sister-in-law gave me a lovely Butternut Squash and I baked it up today..

And I used some to make a recipe I found Here..

The oldest bread in the world.. 

Lovely flat breads made with only 3 ingredients.. 
They are delicious rolled up with olive tapenade and a slice of ham.. 

My last bottle of Pico de Gallo...

Made a lovely salad dressing with half of it.. 

Pico de Gallo Salad Dressing.. 

1/2 cup of Pico de Gallo or Salsa.. 
1/4 cup of olive or Canola oil
1/4 cup of Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp. of cumin or chili powder
salt and pepper.. 
Whisk together well.. 

Yesterday we had a great day.. 
Worship service in the morning at our church in Salisbury and then last evening we went to a concert in Sussex .. 
It was awesome with such anointed singing with this young family.. 

That is was our weekend ..

We woke up this morning to rain beating against the windows.. 
The grasses are turning green and the trees are in bud and soon the gardens will be planted.. 
Life is good ... 
 And God is good... 

Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your sweet notes.. 
Welcome to the new followers and new Face Book friends of the Blessed Hearth.. 
So glad to have you.. 



  1. You had a busy weekend. Isn't it great to see the fields greening up so fast? I just wish we'd get some more sun to dry things out and let the trees start to leaf. All this rain is a worry for those in the flood zones too. You make such different foods Faye. I wish I was an experimenter when it comes to cooking like you. :-) It always looks so delicious and interesting. Have a great week and fun cleaning the farmhouse. xo Pam

  10. Sounds like an easy and fun weekend. I would be itching to get back into the farmhouse for summer! Checked the link for the "river run", but looks like just a truck mud fest...didn't see anything about the canoe run (more my speed).
