11.17.17 // Two exciting things! ☝🏼️I have acquired a sourdough starter, now named Maria after my friend who gave it to me. I'll be baking my first homemade loaf next Thursday ☺️ I'm researching various no-knead techniques! ✌🏼️ I came up with the design for my first area of Garden.. I still need to come up with a name for this garden... Each square represents a foot so the space is roughly 20 x 20. I'll have six 15' x 30" beds, plus some on the edges of the garden with trellises. Very exciting stuff 😍
It's #nationalhomemadebreadday ! I bake a loaf of bread every week and sometimes have time to make cool swirl rolls. This is with my new #sourdough , a little rye, and sea salt on top. Bread is life...and it smells yummy. 👌🍞🥖

I really like always having blanched vegetables, par-cooked potatoes, hard boiled eggs, carrot sticks, and so on at the ready as when I loose track of the day, BOOM, a meal in like five seconds.
8/12 girls are laying so it's going to be a lovely winter. If you have a small flock, think long and hard about if you want eggs on all of the days or not. How many eggs does that cheese cake, pie crust, frittata, quiche, etc require? Do you want to add light in winter? Do you want to cull and add new layers annually? Do you want to consider timing new chicks with seasonal implications? Are you fine if there are no eggs or if you need to buy eggs? Anyway.
Bacon bread makes everything better.
