Stella has fun in the snow

The snow may melt later this week. Stella plays in the white stuff as long as she has it.

She loves the snow. Stella doesn’t mid the coming mud, but I do.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Sprouts in my kitchen

I have two videos I made about sprouting seeds on YouTube. This is the second one I did.

It’s easy to sprout seeds. I love to eat alfalfa sprouts. You don’t need anything fancy. A canning jar works with a cheesecloth cover. Soak seeds overnight in room temperature water. Pour off the water. Each morning and evening, pour room temperature water into your container and then drain well. Depending on the seeds you are using, they will sprout in a day or two. After they grow a few more days, you can eat them. When they grow large enough, rinse, and then refrigerate them. Great for salads, tacos, and sandwiches. Find different seeds to sprout if you want other flavors. Radish sprouts are a little spicy.

Cardinal at the feeder

I’ve been trying to catch the cardinal at the feeder. Usually, he grabs a mouthful and then he’s gone. Today he hung around long enough for this video.

It is below zero so I stayed inside the house taking his picture. Good thing I filled up the feeder last night. There’s also a heated birdbath on the porch, so its a one-stop breakfast.

A quiet look at the library’s area for children

There are things for the very young in this section of the Muehl Public library.

Toys attract children’s attention after they gather books to take home.

A parent can rock a baby while older children investigate all that is available to them.

Harvesting lettuce

It’s time for a nibble from my hydroponic garden.

It sure makes me happy to see these plants growing. And besides looking at the green plants, I can eat the lettuce. Can’t beat being able to eat from my winter garden.

The second growing water garden will eventually have pansies. Those should bring color into my house.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
