The Soap Tribune, Issue #113--It's Mother's Day tomorrow
May 07, 2022

It's Mother's Day tomorrow

I will be spending Mother's Day with my mom. I'm planning to make a fruity desert and bring some Lavender bar soap and lip balm for her to enjoy. Flowers would be nice.

Great soap, some perennial garden plants, and lunch on the Waterfront at The Ithaca Farmers Market is one way to get it all in one place.

Saturday's Hours: from 9-3 the 1st Sat. in April through Oct. Sunday's Hours: 10-3pm. May through the last Sunday in Oct.

November's Hours: Saturday and Sunday 10-2pm December's Hours: Saturdays 10-2 til Dec. 17th (the Rutabaga Curl)

We are in booth 6.

Click the links below for more information and to find out about the Tompkins County plant sale, on May 13th. We will be there in our regular booth, with heirloom irises and rhubarb, along with our regular fabulous soap and lip balm.

How to clean a greasy stovetop

Did you know that natural soap cleans your kitchen appliances better than detergents?

Dispose food debris and kitchen grease in your compost bin, without all of the toxic fumes or dry hands that result from "cleaning fluids".

Make cleaning your kitchen fun with the Liquid Soap Refill. We are working on a new package that will be easier to use and is compostable. Photos and videos (!!) coming soon.

It's time to work in the garden

My seedlings are getting harden off, so they are strong enough to go into the garden.

I'm getting ready to plant my cabbage and broccoli seedlings. I did a kale experiment last Nov., and planted small seedlings to over Winter and get a head start this year. It worked and I'll be picking baby kale leaves today.

I planted a variety of lettuce and Tatsoi, an Asian spinach, that are all growing nicely.

Get your hands dirty and see if you can grow a salad or a tomato sandwich!
