kefir!

I received my first grains a couple days ago from a very nice lady on a forum. They were shipped fresh in a bit of milk and had over-fermented and probably gotten too hot. Soo hoping for the best, I mixed the whole shebang with about two cups of milk and let it sit for a day in a mason jar, stirring once. By the time I got back to it it smelled and tasted very yeasty, not sour at all. Also the milk had curdled a bit, though that part could have been from the original shipped mix. Strained and…See More

"Thanks Cornelia! I didn't know about the USDA site. The Jacksonville Farmers Market is wonderful but much too far away. I talked to a couple of guys at Whole Foods and they referred me to another person who runs it. I haven't been able to…"

"Unfortunately it sounds like one of those things that depends on where you are. Usually, there is a fee for exhibitors at the market and then you take the proceeds from what you sell. There is a USDA site for Florida farmers markets here…"

how to sell at a farmer's market

Do you pay someone for permission like renting a spot or do you need a permit? If selling food items do you need any certification or licensing?My local Whole Foods has been hosting a market for about two months. It's tiny, especially compared to the gigantic storefront, but it is the only one close enough to walk to.Does anyone have experience with things like that?steph (caton mew)See More

caton mew commented on Cornelia's blog post '%$&*# Bureaucrats! My gutter garden must come down.'
"Aww, that's horrible! I'm so sorry they made you do that. It's not like it was in the way of walking and if a storm came and knocked something down then anybody who would be upset wouldn't be outside anyways. A similar thing…"

A bit about me:
I'm "the weird herb chica" of my apartment complex, but not able to have anywhere near the garden I want. Still dreaming about dairy goats as well. Meanwhile, I grind my own wheat with a mission to perfect whole grain bread and am always looking up ideas for healthy eating and diy housekeeping stuff.
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Oat scones with honey-butter cream. The scones came out almost perfect. They were flaky-crumbly and not too dense, barely sweet with a hint of nutmeg. For the spread I whipped honey, brown sugar and butter plus whipped vanilla cream.
Currently listening to:
Pandora.com station with Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
My latest DIY project:
kefir! I'll post how it goes.
