- A shot of the boys next to the "Cherokee Chocolate" tomato plants- I've been playing with milk lately, and learned how to clabber our buttermilk (the type you get after you make the butter). It's turned out SO yummy, so I've been making lots of bread, mashed potatoes, and so on with it. The cool spells we've been having have been perfect weather for it all. We've also been harvesting some "Black Beauty" zucchini from the yard and shredding it up to be used later for Zucchini Bread. Here's a link for the recipe: Let's see - what else?? We've begun gathering seeds from spent cosmos, calendula, and marigold blossoms, and I need to head out and collect some from the mustard greens as well. Have our latest batch of soap curing right now - we were able to use calendula and lavender harvested from our gardens in it, which was really cool. Am searching for a good shampoo bar recipe, so I can make some more of that as well. Want to use some homebrew in it to amp it up some.
Right now I am making a rag rug. Tomorrow I will be trying my hand at making yogurt in my slow cooker.
