The Soap Tribune, Issue #211--Summer bubble baths
June 22, 2023

Bubble Bath

It's Summer Solstice and I was surprised to answer so many requests for bubble bath last week at Ithaca Farmers Market last Saturday.

The Instant Liquid Soap makes an excellent bubble bath.

If your high school graduate likes the down time of a bubble bath, Instant Liquid Soap makes an excellent gift.

Farmers Market

Strawberry season has arrived here in Central NY. With all of the weather issues we have been having, the strawberries are sweet, in short supply, and expensive. I am still filling my freezer, eating them with reckless abandon, and enjoying every minute of it.

Peas, radishes, lettuce, and sweet Spring carrots.

Visit us in booth 6 to stock up on the best camping and RV soap. Ithaca Farmers Market hours through Oct. 29, 2023, at Steamboat Landing are:

Saturdays 9-3pm Sundays 10-3pm

Time to plant your garden

My garden is spectacular this year. Its seems as if all of my soil enriching efforts are working.

Everything I have planted out early and have had under row cover are coming up strong and brilliant. Even my loofah seeds have all germinated.

My indoor cucurbit planting experiment went well and I germinated enough to fill in all of my sports with germinated seeds.

My hopi purple dye sunflowers sprouted and the chickens dug up and ate my African dye marigold seeds. My 2nd round of lettuce will fill in the spots where I've picked lettuce..

Our Tough Guy pumice soap is a great gardener's soap. It gently scrubs your hands, leaving them soft and clean after the work of planting your garden.
