Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Ham-scape

They are back. Behold....
Ham-scape 

We got our hams back from being cured and smoked. Could anything be more beautiful?

More tomorrow... I got me some ham to fry up in a pan......

btw, we were just at the store and we saw some ham steaks about the size of ours (we had the butcher cut one of the hams for us)... they were $13. Is it worth it? Oh yes... its worth it.

BTW... Chai Chai... THANKS for the card! Debbie loved it and yes, she is feeling better. Did everyone see the adorable goat card CC's goaties made for Deb?

We are all about the ham 'round here. Bacon I can do without but ham is a daily necessity!

I know you can't wear a hat today :o) If I had grown that ham I'd be swollen up too! Glad I at least found a ham and won't be too jealous. I'd like to see a picture of a slice you are about to fry...Just finished watching the 1900 house, and darn it she had some chickens..

GW, we sing lots of joyful ham songs around here. Yay ham!

VRT, isn't it the best darn ham you've ever had? I'm telling you, nothing beats it!

Oh now, Ginny... I'm trying to contain my ham joy but it IS busting out! I just finished Episode 10 of Edwardian Farm. I'm learning so much! I'll take some happy snaps of the ham for you.

Thanks Kenleigh! Hope you're are this wonderful.. yummmmm!

I liked the Mo-scape, but that ham-scape is a beauty to behold. Shame you can't put smells on your blog... On second thoughts thinking of some of the stable pics you show maybe that's a good thing.

Ohiofarmgirl said...

yes, Heiko there are some thing you just dont want to smell.. but this ham... oh golly!

Mr. H. said...

You know, I think that perhaps one of the reasons that we don't eat hardly any meat is because I never got over how good the home grown kind is. If I aint eating my own I aint eating any of it.:)

Ohiofarmgirl said...

Mr. H, if you could smell my kitchen right now you'd be drooling for sure.
