Pouring here today. TIppet got to wear his new Cloud Chaser. Birthday (from me to me) stuff arrived today. My brother gifted us a second one which will be the base for his “overcoat.” And the 100% wool arrived today. Nice looking piece. I will start fulling/felting/felling – whatever it’s called this afternoon.
Also arriving today was a package from The Truffle Dog. Our real truffles are happily in the freezer, blacks were somewhat soft but they will be fine for our purposes. I didn’t cut them up. They are in glass shaker jars (think Parmesan cheese at your favorite pizzeria) with a piece of paper towel on the bottom and a piece of plastic wrap between the jar and the lid. If that is not okay, let me know asap! I plan to introduce them by putting a piece in a tin with the q-tip scented oils, and then fade the q-tip over a few days.
Just driving around in the rain this morning, we stumbled on a find! These trees (dfir 1&2) are three blocks from our house and are on a newly deeded community forest! I will walk down the road a bit this week because I think I see more. A few look over 15, but under 45 yrs old. Wouldn’t that be sweet?!
What kind of trees are “whatisthis 1&2?”
Thanks for all your help. We may get to a truffle hunt later today, but not right now.
