Hard to believe, but it has been one year since our first blog post. We had no idea where this was going when we started, but our family blog is now a labor of love. But it isn’t even “labor”, we simply love this. We are not much on milestones here at the farm. We enjoy every day and hope to do a little better every tomorrow. We don’t look back much, as we are so grateful for the present. Sometimes heaven is a place on earth, and many days we think we’ve found it (or at least something pretty close).
But we will mark this anniversary because we want to thank all of you for visiting us. We cannot begin to tell you all how grateful we are that you would take time out of your day to visit Putney Farm. We feel like we have dozens of new friends from all over the world. And for that, we are eternally grateful.
We are also grateful for all the feedback, suggestions, jokes and encouragement. Bloggers, it turns out, are a very fun group of people. We are also grateful for all the corrections and suggestions to improve our recipes. It pains us to make mistakes or poor choices (and we apologize for any and all recipe issues), but the only way to get better is to recognize where you can improve. And we can both say we are much better cooks, photographers, gardeners and bartenders than we were a year ago. And for this we are most grateful. To us, food truly is love, and to constantly make and serve better food to those we love is a dream come true. Thank you. (And a summary of photos from the last year).
Congratulations! It’s a wonderful site! Your photography is beautiful.
I have been enjoying your blog very much. I’m so glad to have found it. Happy anniversary!
Thanks and thanks for visiting us!

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to you! Even though I have only been reading and following a short time, it has been a genuine pleasure to join your adventures in the kitchen and beyond. Thank you! And I look forward to many more years!
Thanks for the kind words and for visiting us. (and we still think your blog has the best name ever… 😉
Aw! Blush! Thank you!
Congratulations! What a great year. I’d visit and love your blog even if you weren’t my brother 🙂
Many many recipes have entered my repertoire from Putney farm!
I meant to say brother AND sister in law
We both thank you… 😉
Congratulations to you Putney Farm!! Your blog has brought many a smile and more than a few laughs as well as stunning photos and recipes into my life. Thank you! Especially for the Roasted Tomato recipe, which I use in my kitchen now too. You discovered my blog just several weeks into my adventure and I appreciate the connection! My bro lives in Novato, CA, who knows, I may like to look you up sometime! Cheers!
You would be welcome to visit! We enjoy your blog as well..part of the fun has been finding other blogs. So much cool stuff out there…plenty to learn…
Thank you Putney Farm! Yes – that’s a big part of it for me, too, camaraderie with people all over the world…
Happy blog anniversary! I’ve enjoyed your posts throughout the year, especially your cocktails. Here’s to many more years of fantastic blogging!

Congrats on your anniversary and keep up the fabulous work!
Thanks- we will do our best…. 😉
Keep up the great work and thanks for visiting and hence supporting my newish blog, appreciated, and for being my top cocktail blog – some of the mixes are far out. Great stuff, look forward to reading more! Tracey
Thanks! Enjoying your blog (not jealous of your weather, however). Hope you enjoy the drinks! (
Congratulations, Putnuts! Thanks for the nonstop party!
Thank you. And we do try to keep a “lively” farm… 😉
Happy anniversary – keep up the good work!
Thanks! Enjoying your blog and photos as well!
I think you guys are pretty amazing for only one year! You have such a professional polish I would have thought you’d been “at this” longer. 🙂 I enjoy each and every post. Congratulations! And I really admire your fabulous photography!
Thanks, most appreciated. We are learning every day and enjoying it…we have the joys of digital photography to thank for the photos. It’s easy to get a few good shots if you take a few hundred… 😉
Congratulations! Have been enjoying the photos of the produce and their use! 😀 Fae.
Thanks and glad you are enjoying the blog!
Wow, you’ve only been going a year? That’s much the same as me. You should be very proud of what you’ve achieved in that time. I know how much work it can be (whether you love the work or not), and you excel at it, particularly with the photography, which I am always envious of (never really having the patience for it).Congrats on your first year!
Thanks, most appreciated. And we do appreciate your comments and feedback on the cocktails, the only way to get better is to try new things and share recipes / notes..
As for photography, we just take a ton of shots and pick the ones we like (and we have a macro lens). It’s become great fun for us…even the kids have opinions on the photos these days.
Happy anniversary. I would never have guessed you’ve only been at it for a year, your posts are always so polished and on point. Keep up the good work, and yes, food is truly love!
Thanks! And we are always fans of your blog…
Congratulations on a successful first year! Delicious wishes for many more 🙂
Thanks! And we like the sound of “delicious wishes”.
GRATTIS …. as we say in Sweden, I’m so happy that you both are around … so that I have somewhere I can land soft .. within alcohol, flowers, chopped onion, burgers, peaches … and bugs.
Thanks! And love the video.
I married Carolyn on my birthday, so I never forget our anniversary and I am permanently 25 years old!
Brilliant .. I always think of you two .. as Wilma and Freddie .. so when I found that video – I knew where its was going.
Be careful so you don’t wake up and find out your real age.
You guys are amazing! Congrats on your first anniversary! I look forward to learning so much more from you in the years to come.
Thanks- we look forward to reading about (and making) more tasty infusions!
Happy first Blogaversary! Here’s to many more years of blogging adventures. 🙂
Thanks…we just need a bit more time to carve out to watch classic movies (we even have a local theater that shows them).
Congrats on your anniversary! Fine blog to follow! Kudos!
Thank you very much!
Congrats! All the best from Puff, Fannie, Peep, Gladys and Bonnie, too! PS, I think the recipes have been wonderful– seasonal & delish. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks- most appreciated. (and we certainly enjoy your photos)
Congratulations on a first year well done!
Thanks! Looking forward to the coming year!
Congratulations on your first anniversary … I really enjoy reading your blog, it’s oozing with the best kind of ‘energy’ !!!

From the quality of the blog I thought you’d been around longer than just a year…
Thanks- we have been doing all this stuff for years, blogging is the only “new” thing…
Happy blogiversary! I can’t believe you’ve only been doing this for a year. Your recipes, photos, and DIY-ness are all wonderfully inspiring. 🙂
Many thanks, and we are enjoying your blog, as always.
Funny, but we have been cooking and gardening for a long time, the only thing that is new is the blogging…but it has been great fun. Thanks for visiting us!
