Another glorious day at the Farm. i only got two pumpkins out of all the ones I planted, the weather was very fickle this summer.
FINDS FROM THE DUMP
I couldn’t believe my luck today, I got a beautiful metal bowl which I will put my lavender sachets in to sell, an old cup and saucer which I will fill with bee’s wax and sell, some wonderful old dishes for Minnie to eat from and a chandelier.
I have been looking for a chandelier ever since I saw one that the electric had been taken out of and small tea candles put in where the electric lights were. It was hung from a tree. I hope to make one of those for use next year.
I did get one assembled and will work on it Monday. Tomorrow I want to find some small leaves to make a pattern out of to put on the cornesr.
BLACK WALNUTS BREWING
I found some more black walnuts today and started boiling them. I love the smell its a cross between and earthy smell and a lemon smell.
I only boil when I am around the kitchen so it may be a few days before its done. I have found some wool fabric to dye and after I am done I will freeze the nuts and the dye. It can be used and reused.
THE NEW HENS
THe new hens are doing well. They are getting off the perch and since there is no one in there that will annoy them I am sure they will be fine now.
I thank you so much for reading my blog today and hope your day was as lovely as mine. Carole and Minnie
