Clover Lawn for the Bees

I decided that my Craft Book Club project for Our Native Bees by Paige Embry is adding clover to my lawn. Since we are in the hottest part of the year, it's not the best time to over-seed the lawn, so this autumn I'll be getting to work! I'm excited to give the bees some more pollen foraging spots!

Today I'm also sharing another project for Salt by Mark Kurlansky! Wendy made some salt preserved egg yolks that I tried. They were very salty, but good. Definitely a garnish only!

Salt Preserved Egg Yolks

I've figured out our next three books! September will be Warlock Holmes: a Study in Brimstone by G.S. Denning, in October we will read The Vampyre by John William Polidori, and November is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott! If you have any Christmas/winter book suggestions for December, let me know in the comments!

Another Pottery Class

I just signed up to take another pottery class this September and I'm so excited! I bought my own tools and a cute little carrying case for them! I can't wait to make all my Christmas presents! Obviously I'll be sharing my progress again. If you expect to get a present from me, you can try to guess which thing I make will be for you.

Tillamook Road Trip

Over the weekend I went on a mini road trip to Tillamook (and a few nearby capes). I had a lot of fun saw some beautiful scenery and ate way too much cheese and ice cream!

Squirrel Feeder Garden Post

I've added plant hooks and a squirrel feeder to my garden posts and have set them in the ground! This is the post with the squirrel feeder that I don't think the squirrels are using or have found. I may be adding more pot hooks and saucers for perches, that may encourage use.

Did you notice that my milkweed is growing out of control!
