Jam Packed Birthday Weekend!

Last weekend was a busy one. On Saturday we went down to the Farmer’s Market and bought lots and lots of fruit. I had ordered a water bath canning kit from Lehman’s and it arrived last week, now it was time to make jam! We decided to start with two strawberry recipes from the Ball […]

Bread Baking

With the sun out today it’s a perfect day for baking bread. Kate got the bread dough ready last night so this afternoon we put loaves out in the sun ovens to bake. [thumb:614:l][thumb:613:l][thumb:612:l][thumb:611:l][thumb:615:l]

I made a few adjustments to […]

An Inconvenient Truth
