A hot cup of fresh ground coffee, a piece of just out of the oven Cajun Three Pepper Bread, a soft rain hitting the livingroom picture window and my computer. Hi, how's your afternoon? My house is quiet. Just me and my Bassett Hound. It's time for a coffee break. The rain forced me inside.
I hand-milled some soap this morning. Some Aloe Vera, and some French Clay. Yesterday I put some Skeeter-Be-Gone and some Oatmeal Cinnamon up to age. Getting ready for the Farmers' Market. I've made feed sack aprons and I'm experimenting with new kinds of breads to sell. I've been using recipes out of Brother Juniper's Bread Book. These have been great. I've tried the Scottish Struan Bread, Wild Rice and Onion and now today the Cajun Three Pepper Bread. I want to take all three to the Market. Maybe I should take Musketman's Cinnamon Rolls? I think that's the label I'd put on them, too.
I put in another five rows in my garden this morning. The frost took out three rows last night. I took a gamble and I lost. Tomorrow it's to the greenhouse to replace tomatoes and peppers. I met some fellow farmer's market sellers yesterday. I thought having 1/2 acre in garden was big, they have 13 acres in vegetables. They do alot of corn and potatoes. I don't think I'm going to do that. I've put in alot of herbs, beans, melons and many varieties of greens. They own the farmer's market in a town about 50 miles from here. They said that we'd be welcome there if we wanted to sell. Very nice.
Coffee break is over. Time to clean. Have a blessed Memorial Day.
