gathering the rye

gathering the rye by lovelydesign

One of the things I find myself saying a lot since becoming a mom is "You've got to have projects!!!" I think if it wasn't for all of our projects I may just have lost my mind a long time ago.

Some genius planted fields of grains all around the new school by our house. Addie is fascinated by them and loves spending time wandering around and playing in their great heights. The other day, we decided to harvest some of the Rye. We are gathering it up with the thought of milling it and making our own crackers - I am eyeing various cracker recipes - any suggestions? It is slow going but pleasant work, and hey, we've got the time!

I also use to take my child to the prairie because she can experiment many sensations and that's what they like I think we have to allow them to be free.
