Little things...

...have been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks.
Last weekend, Gentleman Farmer and I traveled
to Puyallup, WA. home of the Western Washington
State Fair, one of the largest in the country.
We just had to go watch our granddaughter play
her violin with the...

South Sound Suzuki Violin Group!

Oops! How'd that camel get in here?

(Camels are one of my favorite animals! I have
never seen one at the fair before, so just had to
get a photo of her!)

Back at the Farm, I have been keeping busy with many little
food preserving and culturing projects.

Clockwise from top left ~
Red Cabbage Sauerkraut's, Sourdough Starter,
Ginger Beer, Apple Vinegar

The Sauerkraut was made at our church's
Back To Basics class.
Trying my hand at Sourdough starter again.
Last years attempt was a flop so we'll see what
happens this time!
Thought I would try apple vinegar ~ ran across the
recipe when I was reading about the Ginger Beer
at Down--to--Earth Blog.
I love Ginger Ale but rarely buy it and again
thought I would give this a try.
Drying Apples

Apple chips are a great healthy snack ~
perfect for lunches!

Those are some of the little things
that I have been doing.
What little things have you been up to?
