Strawberries in abundance from Bountiful Baskets! Over the past two weeks I got 16 pounds of them. I put up 8 pints of strawberry jam,
and dried 12 pounds of them in my dehydrator.
I've been making some fermented things: yogurt, sourdough starter, and creme fraiche. It all sounds very fancy but it's stinkin' easy.

Yesterday I worked in the herb garden, building up the bed and making a (hopefully) dog unfriendly border using some paving stones that have been lying around for ages. I also transplanted my bay laurel tree from a container into the ground. This morning I'll plant some peas, nasturtiums, and calendula seeds. (Or maybe not. I just went outside and it's freakin' cold and windy.)

Remember the lace wimple I blogged about a while back? Well, I got busy with it...
So while some of us are buzzing around doing a million and one things, others of us are just lying around taking it easy...
