"A lot of extension services have a Master Gardener course. You would go to classes on gardening, flowers, veggies and etc., than put your new knowledge to work doing community projects in your area."

Dave Brannen replied to Rebecca Sweeton's discussion 'Short Loaf' in the group BREAD!
"Forgot to say, depending on where you live, tap water and the stuff in it can be hard on yeast. Try filtered water warmed up."

"Which of the yeasts are you using? The instant can go into the mix but the packets must be added to warm water to activate. Are you keeping it warm while rising?"

Hi Dave, checked in with a bunch of farmers who work for us, and they said the best way to get your garlic clean is to harvest when the soil is relatively dry and use a brush to get loose dirt off right away. After drying, clip roots and clean with a glove or brush. Hope that helps!

Hi Dave, looks like - from your photo - that you've got a Big Green Egg. I was given one in the spring and am still trying to get the hang of it. Roasting tomatoes on it? Bet that's delicious!
