Do it yourself…Baby Cereal (Brown rice and Oatmeal)


Stella has recently started eating and I have been making and freezing baby food all week, fresh out of the garden.  We think mommas milk is best and we don’t stop there.  I don’t know what is in those little jars of baby food at the supermarket, but I do know what is and isn’t in my garden! :)

Along with veggies and fruit I ground up some brown rice in our mill, and oatmeal in our food processor.  If you have a blender or a food processor you can use these to mill your rice or oatmeal to as fine a consistency as you can get it.

I put mine in 1/2 gallon mason jars.  Remember to store these in the fridge or a dark cool place.  You can make a little recipe card and tie it to the side along with a tbsp. measure for quick and handy cooking.

And here’s the recipe’s. Your baby will thank you!!!


Baby Oatmeal Cereal

To make 1 serving for a 5-9 month old baby

1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil and sprinkle in 2 tbsp. of the ground oats.

2. Whisk continuously for 30 seconds and then occasionally for 3-5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy.

Accompaniments: Breast milk or formula can be added to thin the mixture, or ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon, if desired. Fruit purees would go great too!

Brown Rice Cereal

(1 serving for a 4-6 month old baby)

1. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil and sprinkle in 2 tbsp of the ground brown rice.

2. Whisk continuously for 30 seconds and then occasionally for 4-5 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy to prevent any lumps from forming.

Accompaniments: Breast Milk, Molasses, Banana, Almond Milk, Apple Sauce or Baby Food Puree.

Farm Babies




Don had some help last week planting.  Lee learned quickly how to fill up the planter.  After a few times he was taking off all the lids for his daddy.  After Don would get the hoppers full, Lee would put the lids and straps back on.


Our farm babies are growing up! It won’t be long till they will be driving tractors!




Grady is showing us how tall he and the corn has gotten.
