Shaun’s Campaign for Wool
You Can’t Eat Mount Rainier
Tom bought this book at a thrift store the other day. There is no date on this print, but the original one is from 1820.
There is a cure for whooping cough which is somewhat fascinating.
There is another for rabies.
There is a recipe for getting chickens to lay more eggs.
And another to get sheep to grow more wool.
We do have rabbit dung, but I am not sure I am willing to make a powder of it much less feed it to our chickens. But the question is should I buy buttermilk for our next shearing day?
In unrelated news, here are the homegrown peaches that I canned this morning.
I need to let you know that I will not be participating in Fiber Day this year because I need to attend my brother-in-law’s funeral. The Fiber Day Market will be from 1 – 6 p.m. at 6200 N. Green (south of Bow Hill Rd. along Old Hwy 99) in Skagit County.
My friend Denise will have my roving for sale there though. She and the other fiber vendors will have lovely products for sale as well. I do have my products available online or at home also. There are photos of our rovings that will be available at Fiber Day for $3 per ounce and of our yarns that are available from our farm for $9 per 250 yard skein.
