Making Butter!

So, how does the Wetherhold obtain butter?

They use a six year old, a quart of fresh cream, and a trampoline!

It took about 15 minutes, but the end result was fantastic!

As you can see, I'm still up to crazy stuff. Unfortunately I've been too busy to blog about it. A quasi-promotion at work has me working 50+ hours a week plus I've been working out in the evenings after the girls go to bed. I'm up to eight push-ups (if Misseswether is watching)! As I enter deeper into middle-age (hint: birthday real soon) the ratio of food consumed vs. enlargement of my gut keeps tipping farther and father away from my favor. :-(

I had been teach foraging classes just about every weekend, but I'm cutting that back to just once a month. What good is it to feed others if it denies your family time with you? My backyard needs a lot of attention, too. I'm in the process of removing all the non-edible trees and replacing them with fruit and nut trees. I should have done that ten years ago when I started, but back then I had never hear of permaculture. Oh well, live and learn!

Adventure! Excitement! Fresh Creamy Goodness!
