Another Bread Day and Update
There is yogurt in the frig as well. I made it a couple days ago using the little bit that was left from my last yogurt making. This was the first time I had used my own yogurt as a starter. Someone had told me that it would not work as well to keep using your own and that it eventually loses strength but this first batch turned out great; a nice thick yogurt like we like.
The garlic bulbils are doing well. A few more came up but not a lot. I would say if you buy 100 bulbils to expect to get about 10 plants from them. The kale and peas are still growing in the raised bed even after all the rain we have had but the lettuce was killed by it. The cabbage and broccoli in the lower garden are thriving on all that rain though and I am hoping they make it before frost. If not I have some plastic that I can cover them with.
The chickens have picked back up laying and we have more eggs than we can eat in the frig. There are about 4 dozen now and I gave away a dozen the other day. The ducks are still not laying however.
I saw in the paper that apples were going to be on sale again this week. Maybe I will get some more applesauce or apple pie filling.....
