Oh, we're entering the busy season 'round here!
*The potatoes weren't chitting quite fast enough for me, so they've been moved from the very cold mud room into the toasty main living area.
*Trays full of seeds are about to take over all possible south-facing window space!
*No potted ginger or sweet potatoes are poking up from the soil yet. Patience.
*The vanilla extract still has a knock-your-socks-off strong alcohol taste, so I'm continuing to let it brew.
*Handles and labels have been added to my canisters.
*Spring cleaning of the house has begun in earnest. (Although it always seems that to do a massive cleaning requires first making a massive mess).
*For the past couple days, we've awoken to the sound of a woodpecker attempting to make a hole on the side of our house.
*An impulsive stop at the local nursery yesterday found us bringing home some two-for-one berry bushes. (How clever of them to build a nursery on the same road we have to take home from church!)
*We're making plans and assessing the horribly overgrown space that will be this year's garden. Soon, the chickens will be enlisted to help us clean up and fertilize.
*I have a couple more recipes to share with you this week, too!
