Fall Garden

My fall garden items have been in the boxes now about a month and are doing well. I have peas, broccoli, carrots, radishes, lettuce, fava beans, and onion.  I keep meaning to put garlic in the ground but haven't yet.  My tomatoes are still more green than red, my green bean is fading, my cantelopes doing great but I hope they ripen before the end of the season!   Here are pictures of the garden as it looks today.

New Outfit

I about went crazy with the collar, but finally figured it out with the help of a friend and a lot of prayer.  Outfit is great, fits perfectly and is done!

Butter and Canola Oil

I buy a processed butter product that allows for easy spreading... However, it's expensive, and so I looked up recipes for how to make my own spreadable butter.

The recipe is:

two cubes butter, softened (not in the microwave)
3/4 cup canola oil

Mix it up well, pour into glass jar, OR into the last spreadable butter product's container.

It's great tasting and fun to make!

I have not checked out the price for the amount of butter/oil that I use for this to see how much less, if anything, it is from the store product...but it's fun to do!
