it was another beautiful, bright day! we are sooo happy with the weather this past week - it's actually been cooperating and we are getting caught up on everything!
jambaloney went into town a few days ago and found me this huuuuge 2 gallon glass jug for Flower325b - my scoby for making kombucha. we are drinking kombucha every day - not only for the health benefits - but because we love it sooooo much! it is so delicious and if you take special care of your scoby - you can keep making kombucha for the rest of your lives.
Flower325b is very taken with pirate jambaloney's bandanas so that is what we cover her with. we just topped her up today and she'll be ready to go in about 9 days. yummeh! i make her sugar tea with jasmine and green tea tea bags. we love our kombucha!
my friend Harry Flashman from Self Sufficient Mountain Living used one of my comments as a guest post on his blog. you can find it here. the comment of mine that he guest-posted came from a previous post of his found here. if you don't already follow Harry Flashman's blog - you really should! and go back and read it right from the beginning. and check out all of the info he provides in his sidebar. the man has been into survivalism/prepping for a long time. he has a lot of information and advice to share. and he and his family are good people. we have known him for longer than we have had this blog!
this beautiful bed below:
got 2 types of turnips planted in it, 3 types of cabbages, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, nappa, daikon,and pak choi.
jambaloney cleaned out the herb bed - we will lay down bio-mulch around the plants tomorrow.
i also planted a big pot of quinoa, and put some amaranth in the sunset lady runner bean tire. and i transplanted my lavender.
we had hamburgers for dinner. i spice the hamburger meat with worcestershire sauce, a ton of fresh-cracked pepper, some sea salt, garlic salt, onion salt, turmeric, cumin and cayenne - makes for very tasty burger meat.
jam had one with mayo, home-made hot sauce, a pickle and onion. i had a cheeseburger with lettuce and pickle, mustard and relish. jam had another one with the standard relish, pickle, mustard and onion. and my piece de resistance - lobster salad and lettuce. we were hungry from working all morning and being out in the sun (remember we haven't seen the sun in like 3 months!!!)...so after the dinner, a bit of a relax in our comfy chairs, discussion about what's going on tomorrow, and now jam is working on his contract and i am going to catch up on blogs. hope you all had a fulfilling day, too!
