Where did the last weeks go?

With summer in full swing, the boys and I have been busy cleaning and prepping our gardens and greenhouse.

We just added a few raspberry bushes to our garden. Although I am not a big fan of them, the boys sure are. We are all hoping that they make the transplant.

My greenhouse plants are growing like crazy! I lost a few plants with that wicked frost that was had a few weeks ago but most of them bounced right back.

Beet leaves were a hit. We don’t use them but a lot of people around us do.

On the house front, we finally managed to find someone to do or tapping and mudding. We are busy trying to get all the drywall hung. Next step, painting!

Today, housework is urgently needed to be done. Company is coming tomorrow. My baby sister and all 7 of her family are coming. I haven’t seen her in 3 years so needless to say that we are all very excited.

I’m also looking into creating a farmer’s market in our community.  I want to start selling my homemade bread. So many people are asking about it.

I’m also trying out recipes to create all kinds of things… Buttermilk,  sourdough, sour cream, creme fraîche, laundry soaps and more. I’ll post more on that when I find a great recipe that actuality works all the time.

For more day to day updates, visit us on Facebook.

Talking about Facebook… My page is so close to having 1000 likes and I would like to do a giveaway of some sort. If you have something that I could include, please contact me. 😁

Have a great day everyone!

      1. This may sound silly but are there any rules against it? Personally I’d be happy too.

      4. Actually if I’m not charging you, it’s like a gift. I don’t see why I couldn’t send a gift to Canada? I’ll check anyway though.

      6. i haven’t forgotten you! I’m not sure how much granola to send you? I have two varieties and they are 14oz size. I also have 2 oz bags. Would combination of a few 2 oz bags, and 1 each of the 14 oz bags be enough? The value would be $30 (u.s.). Also could I give you a few sentences about it and give you my website where I sell it also? Not asking you to ask anyone to buy it but I’d appreciate the mention:) thanks!

      8. I’ve not done a lot of commenting in WordPress, I guess I messed up because I sent you back a comment last night and I don’t see it anywhere! Darn! So what I sent was a question. I don’t know how bug a give away you were hoping to do. If I send you two full sized bags (14 oz) and 3 snack sized bags that would total a value of $30. Is this fitting your needs for a giveaway? Would you be willing to put in a few sentences I could send you about my granola and add the website, when describing your giveaway gift to people? I would appreciate it. Let me know if you want me to send. I could get it out Monday, but if you need it sooner I could try and get it out today. My errands are all in the AM today so I’d have to get your info soon. Thanks! Claudia

      12. This is my third try to write you. I don’t understand why my replies are not posting. WordPress baffles me sometimes!
