As my regular readers know, we are a mostly self-sufficient family. We also only have a 70 day growing period. This means from June-August is really hectic with very little sleep for us.
Good Friday is coming. Do you have a Good Friday meal or devotional? Crown Of Thorns Bread would be the perfect compliment. And if you do Resurrection Eggs, then these are a good lunch supplement to your crown or thorn egg day. Unlike the Resurrection Rolls I shared with you last week, these ones aren’t as sweet. We purposefully use a humble recipe for Good Friday. It’s more of a somber talk for us all. I don’t want to mislead you–it’s a great recipe, just not as sweet as the rolls that we joyfully use to celebrate His resurrection.

It’s that time again Friends. If you haven’t already planned your garden out for this spring, you’re starting to. Are you looking to do exactly the same thing that you did last year? Or do you want to change it up? I’ve talked to several women this year who want to do something different, but just don’t know what to change. We’re all getting gardening magazines and seed catalogs like crazy right now. Which ones are better than others? (Yes, it matters!) It’s so tempting to order seeds out of a pretty pictured catalog, but are there also local stores that sell seeds? Or did you harvest your own last year? Where do you start?

How do you preserve your pumpkins? They keep pretty good in a cold cellar for a couple months (or even in a pantry for a month or so). But how do you store them beyond that? Once the harvest has calmed down and I have more time to start long-term preserving, we dehydrate ours.
