The end of Summer and back to school is the time when peppers of all kinds are ripe. This is a great year for peppers. Hot and dry weather, with some rain, is perfect for pepper plants. Especially hot peppers. Coupled with the tomato abundance and it's time to make hot sauce and salsa.


Mason Jar Soap Dispensers

We got these foaming pumps so I can have On the Go Soap when I do sampling and demos, and for our Ithaca Farmers Booth. So far, I am so pleased with them. The pump cap fits a standard glass small mouth Mason jar size or a mayo jar headed for the recycling. The pumps fit a 16 or 32 oz. jar.

P and C in East HIll Plaza Ithaca, now carries glass and plastic Mason jar dispenser complete kits. If you don't have this kind of jar in your cupboards or recycling bin to use with the foaming pumps, we got a few extra complete kits for you, too.

We were giving away free pumps until Sept. 1, 2022 with any Instant Liquid Soap 4 or 8 quart purchase. They are for sale now.

They are still free with any $50.00 purchase for you. If you already have Instant Liquid soap and want one of these foaming pumps, type "Free Pump Please" in the notes section of the shopping cart. The expiration date for your special offer is Oct. 1, 2022

It's been so hot and dry, that the bees that live at my house, slowed way down for a few weeks. They didn't make new hives like they normally do, so the bee numbers are down for the season. According to our bee keeper, the bees had a difficult Spring and Summer. Please plant a garden and stop using insecticide. bees.html
