I guess it doesn’t take much to realize I have been missing for quite some time now. All is well but I have been very busy trying to keep up with the farm and our orders. A lot of my time has been spent trying to keep up with the LizzyLaneFarm.com web site and that has been very hard and not working for me.
I am excited to say we have a design firm we are starting to work with and I have HUGE hopes that in a few short months the broken web store will again be working for both of us.
I know how frustrating it has been to try to place orders and not have the site working and then have to contact me and place your order outside the site. Very time consuming I know.
Things are changing very soon and just in time for the spring cleaning both here on the farm, in our Etsy store and our shop. Keep your eyes open because with the spring comes the clean part of it all and sale time too.
In the meantime please stop over to see us at Etsy for your orders. I am there daily to help.
A new post over at the soap blog. Muslin bags who knew I could be so happy with cotton bags?
We are taking a few days off today and until Thursday to celebrate, rest up and visit with friends and family. A mini vacation at home
I finished a batch of these up just in time…The are a limited edition so when they are gone they are gone….
Our Fireworks Guest Soap scented with mouth watering, farm fresh blueberry.
Here is what the listing has to say about it…
I love to celebrate our Nation’s Independence and this is our July 4th fireworks bar soap. What says America any better than stars, stripes, the red white and blue and fresh summer blueberries?
Our fireworks bar soap has all that, each star has embedded into it red and blue stripes and is packed full of the scent of fresh New Hampshire blueberries, warm and ripe in the field just picked from the bush and nestled in your basket….
I’m also enjoying this mouth puckering bar of soap called Iced Lemonade. These are our Farm House bars that weigh in at 6 ounces, a huge bar that rolls in your hand nicely the first time.
And I will spend some time enjoying the garden that is slow to start this year. I have been so busy I just got everything into the ground and what has been planted is just starting to take off. We have been enjoying our fresh lettuce, radish, beet tops and eary peas…
Have a wonderful holiday.
It’s busy around here and many of the little things are left undone, the raking we started to clean the fall’s leaves off the garden and lawn have all blown back on worse than they were, there are many trees and broken branches from the winter ice storms that need to be cut up and hauled away, beds need to be mulched with composted manure and turned, the blackberries need staking again and the list can go on. I have had to learn to look the other way lately and do what I can get done and leave the rest. Priorities you know.
Every so often the smallest things make me the happiest. This year’s gardening is full of happiness for me. The new little green house is growing beautiful little plants, and I can hope for the bountiful harvest they will provide us for the coming year to fill our pantry. I repotted some of the tomatoes that were leggy and falling over, watered them well with a seaweed fertilizer. In a few days they will look much better as they start new roots along to stem in the dirt. I have more than I will need but they will come in handy for trading later in the season.
The peppers are doing very well. I had to reseed several flats of them with new seeds as the first set from saved seeds several years old did not germinate. Oh’ well you will never know if you don’t try.
One of the biggest is Charlie Brown, the Chestnut tree I started from a nut/seed last year. It grew well and when fall came I knew that bringing it in the house was the wrong thing for it, so I buried the pot and covered it with leaves and said goodby until spring. We had a winter of no snow cover so I feared the worse for Charlie, those winter winds can be a killer. But look he’s back and doing good as ever.
It’s also raining again today and this makes me very happy. The horses are loving it too…The chickens not so much they haven’t come out of their house all morning.
What’s happening in your garden that is making you happy these days?
