I realize I've been absent from my blog for awhile. It's been a full summer with trying to prepare and keep in good health with the new baby coming (less than 2 months now!), along with keeping up with the garden. Our tiller blew up earlier summer, just about when I was ready to put the mulch down. Because of that, I've been battling weeds by hand - a battle that I've had trouble keeping up with. Thankfully, we have a new tiller engine in our kitchen, and next year I plan on very little weeding again after a good tilling and layer of mulch!
Another project I've been working on is restocking our Crooked Gap Farmcrafted Soap supply for the upcoming Farm Crawl. I completely sold out this spring with one of our events, and it has been a slow processes restocking my supply since I'm pretty exhausted after the kids get to bed - which is my soap making time. I think I've finally built up a good supply for the Farm Crawl though.
suggestions, and if I pick a name you suggest, I will mail you a free bar for your help!
The first bar is made with my basic soap recipe, tumeric, and cocoa powder. The second soap is made with my basic recipe and tumeric powder as well. (I was excited to recently stumble across tumeric as a natural colorant with great benefits. You can read about it here.)
If you have any great name suggestions, just click on this link to my Facebook post and leave them in the comments. I'll decide on my final name before the Farm Crawl, this October 5th.
