Updates From the Homestead

Second seed order has arrived from Seed Savers. Two more to come.

Scott's new endeavor for the spring and summer will be growing mushrooms.

My first gluten-free recipe. Peanut butter granola bars. I am waiting on them to set before tasting. So far I have been impressed with the gluten-free products that I purchased. The cookies, pizza crust and bread taste good. Gluten-free rice krispies was not good, but that may be because I don't like rice krispies anyway. Today is one week without gluten but have not noticed any changes with the joint and muscle discomfort. Two more weeks to go in the trail. I would also like to mention that 8 out of 12 hens are now laying. Hoping to incubate some of Betty's eggs this spring and purchase some ducks. We are already bartering 4 dozen eggs a month with a friend for bread products (now it will have to be rice bread for me) and another friend has approached me to barter also. She normally has a wonderful strawberry patch each year so I am hoping to get some strawberry jam from her.

Congratulations on sticking with the diet it must be tough. Can we please have the recipe for those peanut butter bars as they sound delicious xxxx

Actually they did not set at all and just crumbled. As well as didn't have much flavor. So I wouldn't recommend the recipe.
