We are heading into the coldest part of the Winter, and I am dreaming of Summer. Bonne of Bonne's Abode (fellow farmgal friend) got a few of us started on a dress sewing craze. I headed out yesterday to find a pattern and wound up with this sun dress pattern, black polka dot fabric and black and white flowered fabric. Three hours later.....a dress for summer. And the amazing thing is....it fits!
Thanks, Bonne, for getting me started. Of course by the time she reads this post, she will have finished at least 10 dresses!
Longing for gardening and playing in the dirt prompted me to try my hand at growing sprouts. I had no idea how easy it is to grow these tasty, excessively nutritious little seedlings. I used organic broccoli seeds, soaked them in water for about 6 hours, rinsed, and then placed them in about a teaspoon of water in this jar. Across the jar's opening is a piece of mesh that will serve as a strainer for the twice daily rinsing that these will get over the next 4 days. In about 4 or 5 days I should have edible sprouts! I will let you know how they turn out. You may want to try this yourself!
