This year I grew drying beans. Plant protein! These are black turtle beans. Delicious in chili, stews and soup.
Using local and organic ingredients like pork tallow, I have made five kinds of homemade soap. I love blending the essential oils! These are for gifts and for home use. 97 bars made, for about 6 hours of work.
This is pork fat, from a local farmer's market vendor (Sunworks Farm). I am melting it down in a slow cooker, to use for homemade soap. Local farmer, local ingredients , local soap!
Here are some fancy doll dresses made from one of my shirts. They have been upcycled with love for the little girls in my life.
