At Home Farm Herbery the time has been flying with all the chores around here.
We have gotten the new vegetable beds ready for next year and the new herb beds built. All the new Hydro trays finally arrived along with next years seeds, plant markers and all the other things that went into the green house.
We got the fennel out and dried plus all the other drying, dehydrating and other things that go on around here.
My local artisan bread base is growing and that means Tues and Fridays are extra busy.
We had 4 or 5 days of steady rain that did glorious things for our big garlic beds and then the sun came out just long enough for us to cover them up with straw mulching before the temperature dropped to 26 degrees that night.
We had a great family Thanksgiving dinner during all this with Jennifer and Nate driving in from Wyoming and Linda coming over from Glasgow, even George decided not to go to Florida and joined us. Glynis cooked up the most moist turkey I have ever tasted and whatever she did to the corn made everyone comment on it. We brought some of our own homemade mince meat pies and pumpkin pies also and there were other great pie contributions.
Needless to say the wine flowed like wine!
I burned up another blender brewing up my liquid gold compost juice. The sparks were sure flying.
I have been busy making Christmas cookies as gifts for all our bread customers and tomorrow I will make many pans of homemade fudge for the girls at our favorite local bank and the gang at our local post office.
Our new scale arrived to replace the 2 month old one we just purchased. That one was touted as a great herb scale and the only thing I can say for it was the description contained a lot of creative writing. I think this new one will make life easier around here.
We are wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and sane Happy New Year.
May the Creative Force be with you
