Yarn Along - May
The pattern is by April Cromwell and can be found here and it is free! I'm not done, obviously, but so far, it is a great pattern, and it has 5 pieces of clothes...for free.
The current read is Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning. I want to get adventurous this summer. I always dry herbs and dehydrate a few things, but this year, I plan on building a solar dehydrator so I can fit more at once, and not have to plug it in. I also want to try some lacto fermentation...hence, this book from the library. I have never tasted any...and have only recently even heard of it, but it sounds interesting and I am going to give it a whirl. Anyone with tips, please please feel free to leave me a comment.
So far, the book is interesting...even if I have never heard of some of the things they are preserving (Cardoons and whortleberries anybody???) I plan on taking some notes before I return it, and if those couple work out, then I will experiment some more. Funny making plans for plants that aren't even in the ground yet.
As usual, Wednesday morning I will be linking up with Ginny at small things for Yarn along.
Oh, and if you made it this far...I am offering a 20% discount to my blog readers at my etsy shop for a few more days as a personal celebration for getting 20 followers (now at 22 for those keeping track ha ha ha). Use the code MAMA20 if you are interested.
