Shortcake, all cleaned up, no more burrs. I took her riding a little bit yesterday evening. If only she loved me as much as I love her….
In other news, if you ordered apple/pear goodies, I’m shipping! I got my boxes yesterday and have scheduled pickups for today, tomorrow, and Friday. My mailman drives a kinda tiny vehicle, so I didn’t want to overwhelm him. You should be receiving your orders by the end of this week or early next week, depending on which shipment you’re in. I called a halt to orders for fear I might have miscounted, but now that all orders are boxed up, I feel safe to say I have a few jars each of whiskey-raisin apple butter, double vanilla pear jam, pear butter, and coconut-raisin pear sauce. First come, first served–if you’re interested, email me at [email protected] with your zip code so I can tell you what your shipping price will be. (Sets of three jars ship cheapest the way the boxes run.)
Second, if you’re on the fence about the cheesy/soapy day here on Saturday, November 3, last call! I’ve got a good group, but can take one or two more. We will be making both hard and soft cheese in the morning. Breakfast and lunch is included, and for lunch, I will be making partially pre-baked pizza crusts in advance, with toppings, for you to top your own individual pizzas with your choice of toppings including your own cheese that you just made–then we’ll bake. We’ll be using the pizza screens, and trust me, it’ll be the best pizza you ever tasted. We’ll take a farm tour to see the animals and spend the afternoon making soap. You’ll be taking your soap home, for yourself or for holiday gifts. If you’re interested in being part of this fun day, email me at [email protected]. The cost for the full day, including meals, is only $100 per person.
See you at the farm!
