How to clean a cat litter box

Plastic free cleaning is possible throughout your life.

Too many deep cleaning house tasks involve a lot of garbage. One time use sponges and wipes, single use plastic bottles, paper towels, plastic bag litter box liners, etc. This is just a fraction of the waste that result from our chosen cleaning products and cleaning methods.

Cleaning a cat's litter box using this plastic free method takes only a few minutes every day.

Boat rides and berries!!!!

I went for a boat ride at The Ithaca Farmers Market last week. The captain is all about the history and nature of the lake, so the tour is fascinating. Plus there are Osprey nests with babies on the lake shore. The babies are giant and easy to see.

This is a bumper year for berries of all kinds. I bought sweet and tart red currents last week from Black Duck Cidery at The Ithaca Farmers Market and made a no bake custard pie. Click the Farmers Market link for the recipe.

I also tasted mulberries for the first time. Wow!!! Sweet and delicious. I definitely need some more of those to add to my summer berry jam collection.

I didn't try them, but saw that there's a new farmer at The Ithaca Farmers Market with Juneberries. This may be the last weekend for them, if you go by their name.

This is also the last picking I will be getting out of my rhubarb. So if you love rhubarb, like we do, get over to the market and buy what may be the last of the season, since I've heard you shouldn't pick it after July 4th., which is Monday.

Remember to visit us in booth 6. I'll be there both days. See you this weekend!



Diamonds are forever

Herkimer diamonds are an amazingly clear diamond like quartz crystal that you can mine in Middleville, NY. It's a fun way to get some great exercise with shiny prizes.

The Ace of Diamonds Mine and Campground is open for the season and a great place. I have mined for diamonds and have a few set in a necklace and earrings.

They have a store with Herkimer diamond jewels and Ithaca Soap Instant Liquid Soap.

Do something different while you're out on this holiday weekend

Small business rocks!

Are you staying in Ithaca? You have to check out Stonebend farm. It's right up the road Upper Treman Park.

There's local beer and some very delicious wood fired pizza all made fresh with local everything. Farmer Ground Flour Local Cheese, sausage, and tomato sauce grown right there

Plus the view is spectacular. The tavern is in a greenhouse, that is wide open for summer, cool and comfortable. And there's live music. It's child friendly and a super place to go. Check it out on Porter Hill Rd. in Newfield, NY

Wash your hands with Ithaca Soap and get some LiXTiK at the pizza counter.
