Couldn't find Concord grapes, my preferred variety so today I prepped two punnets (weigh 3 pounds each) of seedless black table grapes for jelly making. Strained off the juice. Typically I would use t ...

Ran dehydrator for 10 hours.

Greens - baby kale, baby spinach, baby Swiss chard - fully dried and crispy. Scrunched by hand then ran through Magic Bullet. One and one-half pounds powdered down to ...

Dehydrator is having its initial run today.

Next six trays have mixed ...

Woohoo! Dehydrator was delivered yesterday!

Thank lowri for the tomato to horse transition, MR.

There's a plowing match every year, lowri. I'm not quite sure if it will happen this year or not. And even if it does occur if I will attend.
