My mom always has the family over for Easter Sunday, and she does the ham. The rest of us pitch in with various salads and whatnot. But as far as I’m concerned, the Easter dinner really only requires three things: ham, cheesy potatoes, and pie.

And since other people cover the first two, I’m free to focus on the fun stuff at the farmstead.

The pies are mixed berry and coconut cream. The flowers are all from my front garden, where approximately 500 daffodils are currently blooming their heads off around my fruit trees.

As for the eggs: these are from my chickens. They went to my dad and to Mr. Roy, who together built the Chicken Palace five years ago, and to whom I will be paying eggs and coconut cream pies in perpetuity.

Hope your Easter was a lovely one!

I teach garden and homesteading skills—the stuff your great-grandmother knew how to do. But if there's a faster, cheaper, or easier way to do it, I'll find it!By day, I design earth-friendly gardens for Spotts Garden Service. By night, I don my Wellies to become the Fraudulent Farmgirl. On my small urban homestead, I've ripped out the front lawn to plant vegetables and fruit trees, turned the garage into a chicken coop and grown enough strawberries to feed half the neighborhood.
