The sun finally peeked thru yesterday. It’s been days since we’ve seen some decent sunshine. In fact it’s been downright cold and dreary. Early Wednesday AM and during for brief periods during the day, a heavy drizzle fell. A little after midnight, Jordanne was awaken by the sound of rain falling off the roof and woke me and Justin up. We had to go out and cover the earth oven and bring in the solar ovens since the perciptation was a little unexpected.
I think we’ve caught up on most of the comments left by our readers. It’s great to see reader participation and hear of others journey. The Daily Bread post is hopping with commentors – care to share your fave bread recipes?
A few of you have inquired about when the NIGHLINE piece will air. As soon as we have a definite air time, we’ll let you know! Should be interesting to see how the piece comes together since they were here filming for three days and got some interesting “behind the scenes” look at life here on the urban homestead.
Farmer D is still nursing an old ankle injury that flares up now and again. Yesterday evening Farmer D was invited for an 1 hr long telephone interview with Tera from the Raw Divas to speak to their private membership club. Thanks again Tera for the invite, we appreciated sharing our journey with your members.
The garden’s growing and the wildflowers are blooming. It’s springtime ya’ll!
Yesterday, we (Jordanne & I) made our first batch strawberry bars of the season. Of course by today the tray was complete demolished. We’ve been snacking on fresh strawberries for about a week now and couldn’t wait to make our first berry bars of the season.
As for the other berries growing here on the urban homestead, we harvested a first few blueberries. We are up against Mr or Mrs Mockingbird who has been spotted snatching a couple. Will have to put up some bird netting if he gets to be too much of a berry snatcher.
