I washed some brown wool today. The lighter color you see is what the sheep looked like. Once the wool was sheared off, you see more dark brown. I do have some fleeces for sale if anyone is interested.
I had let cheese sit in a bowl overnight in the fridge. I poured it into the strainer to finish draining. =) I will mix in salt and Italian herbs and garlic. Yum. We use it in baked Italian dishes and also as a spread for crackers. We even put small amounts of it on our salad in place of feta.
We are starting to get a little bit from the garden. Most of the cabbage we planted was done. There are still several heads out there that need some more time. We got lots of pole beans and a nice amount of bush beans. I still have not figure out the whole tomato thing. One plant out there is covered in red and turning red tomatoes. All the rest are all green with an occasional plant having an orange one. If they keep coming in this slow, it will be hard to can, or I will have to make a big mess for just a small amount. We also got one green pepper. There are finally lots of little peppers on the plants, so we should be getting some soon. The corn is trickling in as well. We will have some of this for supper tomorrow, but it is sure not enough to work on for freezing.
