This past week was a bit hectic as W was working on orders/repairs in his rod & reel shop. I was trying to keep up with everything else around the house.
I started some seeds in peat pellets. These are about 10 cents each when purchased in bulk, and I find I have much better luck with seeds germinating in them. It is worth the small added expense since it is still cheaper than purchasing plants.
I brought home the bread bowl to feed to the chickens as a treat.
I froze the pieces scooped out of the bread bowl to turn into breadcrumbs later.
I divided lemongrass I purchased earlier this spring. It grew much more than I expected and was overfilling the top.
I planted two pineapple tops that I had rooted.
I harvested pineapple sage, lemon balm, and mints to use in my herbal teas.
I picked more strawberries from the garden as well as some blackberries.
The tile we wanted for the new house finally went back on sale. I was waiting for the drop in price to order. Our patience meant a savings of over $800. We did opt to have the tile and supplies shipped. The shipping charges were lower than the wear/tear and cost of us pulling a trailer four hours round trip to pick up everything.
I attended a wedding shower over the weekend. My mom and I went in together on a gift which was a cake carrier (purchased with a 40% off coupon) which I decorated with vinyl shapes cut out with my Cricut. I used some leftover pieces of tulle to wrap it. I also included a scrubbie and dish cloth crocheted with yarn I had on hand. I took spinach dip (recipe tomorrow) served in a homemade bread bowl. I used this recipe minus the Parmesan cheese and divided the dough into two pieces. I baked them for about 30 minutes in two 6 inch cake pans. It was served with crackers.
