Farm Side Research

Well, it only lasted one day. 

I think it might be fun from now on, if, when I can, I share with you some of the stories I use in research for the Farm Side. Wednesday is deadline day, so this will generally occur then.

I sometimes end up pretty far afield, but I sure do see some interesting things... here goes.

Oh my, my, my . . that looks good. Cooking - particularly 'baking' - is such a gift to family.

You do cull some interesting info. That business about the ash bore . . wouldn't that be something?

Cathy, I was absurdly thrilled that it came out well...never been much of a cake baker.
