184-Our Mid-Summer Report

Hello again,

It is nearing the end of July as we record this and the garden is in full production. We are eating fresh garden tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant and sweet corn. This is the best time of year for both cook and gardener.

We give a review of using all Janie’s Mill flour in our English Muffins. The simple change in flour makes a world of difference.

Mark your calendars for our upcoming events: September 11 we will have Kwiksilver Karaoke and October 9 will be our 3rd annual Fall Festival. Both will be a lot of fun.

On this episode, we hope you notice a small upgrade in quality with our recording. In our on-going efforts to improve everything we do, we are working on the podcast as well.

Until next time,

Donna, Julia and the Felines

P.S. Let us know how we can serve you better.
