BRK Day 8

Picked up some hay this weekend, I got 18 bales for my plot, and Jen and Josiah got 19 for theirs. We also found a wild elderberry plant on the way back and harvested 5 quarts or so of berries!

Chestnuts have been facing some heavy predation, I suspect the grasshoppers are getting hungry

Clayton, this is almost too much honour. A whole series of photos with the 'beanie' I knitted!
It's weird, I almost knew for certain you would choose this one, the 'red' one. Did you know this wool was dyed with real madder (Rubia tinctoria)?
 
Right! We're on it! Let's get to work tiny ad!
