Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

Been a busy 4 months with little time to say hey y'all. During this time, I learned the boys are rainbow loom masters, me, fat fingers. So, not to be out done (male vanity kicked it), I'm learning to weave and loom knit while teaching the boys as I go. Funny how fast they pick it up and do better than I with a little encouragement. Weaved 2 baby blankets, 1 more in the loom, & 2 heart shaped trivets. Knitted 8 Christmas gift scarfs with 10 more in the que. Appears, folks still like gifts from your hands and heart over store bought, no matter how imperfect they might be. Anyone else weaving or loom knitting, let me know. I need all the help I can get! Well, back to stacking the dehydrator for chicken jerky.

Mmm. Chicken jerky. But before I get distracted by food: Congrats, Dr. John, on your new skill! You'll have to share pictures of your projects (and the grandkids' projects, too!). Happy New Year!

Not bad for a rookie!? Making 2 more scarfs & a shaw! Jerky was a Super Bowl success. Grandsons are weaving and knitting a scarf for a surprise to a loved one, so no pictures yet. but they are as good looking as any as I have seen. Have a brisket corning and a fermenter full of green apple Riesling.
