A few more misc tidbits I didn't calculate in for the kitchen but those things will come along in due time. The goal is the same, the intent is the same and it WILL happen. Just not as quick as I thought it would. LOL Story of my life there. But, I don't give up so easy so I keep plugging along.
Sure would be nice to have seedlings growing around here. I take small consolation in knowing that none of the major greenhouses have anything started either. I'm sure those businesses will just purchase seedlings from somewhere warmer come regular planting time. Me, I'll just end up being behind because I don't plant anything I don't grow for myself. Ah, I take that back, I made my son replace some plants with locally grown seedlings (amish greenhouse) one year when he was too busy playing video games to watch the unweaned baby goat for a couple hours.
Eh, the sun is blazing on the combination of ice and snow that finished up yesterday morning here.
So, what's on the agenda today? Let's see.... bucket some water to the kitchen to do dishes and clean up so I can bake some bread and fix something for supper. Then, bucket more water to the wash machine for some laundry. There always seems to be something here needing washed. Then out to tend the farm critters, bust ice and such, check everybody out for injuries, sickness and so on. After that it's back into the house to thaw rabbit water bottles, sweep and mop the floor. Daily chores around here. Another pot of coffee and then it's off to the job for a few hours. Back home later on to do a last check of animals and a little reading before bed. Yep, that's how exciting it is here! LOL
This is what my batch of bread making usually looks like. Simple recipe I got from I think the Happy Homemaker or maybe it was frugal homemaker, 4 or 5 years ago. It's simpler than the old recipe I used to use and comes out the same every time no matter what the temperature and humidity of the day is.
So, why take the time to make my own bread you say? Hmmm, have you ever read the ingredients label on a loaf of commercially sold bread? Yep, bingo! What just came out of my oven is nothing but flour, sugar, salt yeast and filtered water.
Well, off to get things done before the farm critters think I abandoned them!
