I made it down to the River Market area in Kansas City today to check out The Farmhouse.
We started out with some crazy good fried green tomatoes that were served with onion & pepper jam, goat cheese, and mixed greens. They were creamy, crunchy, spicy, sweet. Seriously good. If you are an aficianado of the FGT - you must go. These are the best I have had in the area. They rank right up there with the ones I had in Asheville NC last fall.
Before heading down to the farmhouse I stopped to pick up my friend Joan. All her fountains were going and her angel wing begonias were eye-poppingly georgeous. I don't know why I didn't get a photo of them (probably because I was lamenting the fact that my fountain isn't working). Here is what I do have a photo of.
My fountain that I just put a new water pump in because the old one was broken. I did it all by myself because Joan made me think I could. That, and the strength I got from eating fried green tomatoes.
Next step - silicone application. Photo of successful addition of water to follow. Fingers crossed everyone.
