The Soap Tribune, Issue #162--rutabaga pie
December 17, 2022
Happy HolidaysThank you all for a wonderful year. I hope you have love, warmth, comfort, and good food to celebrate.
As we move through the darkest time of the year, I find myself celebrating the small simple things. Things like sorting all of the seeds I collected from my garden and planning next year's garden. Making kohlrabi fries as a Wintertime snack for Andy, and giving the peels to my chicks who squeal and cluck with delight. Knitting that sweater I've been working on for a long time out of the indigo dyed buffalo yarn Felting new hats for us. All of these things involve using soap in one form or another, which makes me really appreciate our business right at the moment when I think I need a vacation.
Whatever you do, make it good.

Live Kitchen SeriesOnce the whirlwind of farmers market is over for the year, I will turn my attention to showing you all how to have a live kitchen. Stay tuned for that.
How to clean a greasy stovetopFor me, Winter is a time for visiting, cooking, tending to the indoor garden and planning the outdoor garden.
As you can imagine, my kitchen, especially my stovetop, is constantly being cleaned.
Natural plant dyeingI had to clean all of my dye flowers out my freezer, to make room for this year's bounty. So I made dye with my frozen flowers. Stay tuned for washing wool and cotton to get it ready to soak up all of that color that Mother Nature gives to us in plants and flowers.
