Watched the birds snacking on mulberries while having my morning cup of coffee on the porch ( ignoring the goats loud assertions that they would starve before I finished...they didn't ;)). Cedar waxwings, several grosbeaks, and a pair of flickers flitting all around the tree looking for the ripest fruit.
The first daylily of this season opened in our garden today. I love the color!
After I finished the morning milking, I potted up the Stevia and Portulaca I purchased last week. The beautiful weather and all the outdoor activity inspired me to mix up a batch of soap that I have been wanting to try.
I developed this soap recipe specifically with gardeners in mind. To our basic goat milk soap I added finely ground pumice to scrub away dirt and grime, with dried lemon zest and lemongrass essential oil for a cheerful, refreshing scent. Tomorrow I will take it out of the mold and cut it...then try to be patient for 4 weeks while it cures!
