It is HOT!!

My goodness it is hot and not just hot it is really really HOT!  This is so unusual for MI to be so warm this long! we took the "boys" swimming in the lake the other night and it wasnt even refreshing, the water was warmer than bath water!! LOL oh well Buster Brown loves swimming so that was well worth goin for.
My mom has been planting and plantin in some new gardens around the farmstead lately and they needed some..........?? Chickens of cource!! LOL

 I cut these out of wood and attached them onto metal stakes.  There are 5 more ready to be finished and attached so they can play and scratch with the other girls!
This garden in on the corner of the property right by my big farm sign.

A newbie for markets!!  I made some lavender shortbread mini pie shells, filled them with a non dairy homemade whipped cream and topped them off with a dollop of homemade lemon curd

My mom and I picked enough black raspberries last night for 2 more batches of jam.

The blueberries are ripening and are huge this year!! and oh so tasty!!

Peach crisp

Banana blueberry muffins and breads

A wonderful recipe that will be a sure keeper!!  almond poppyseed muffins and bread, with an orange almond glaze (will do glaze tomorrow)

This is a jazzed up version of my grandma Rose's southern buttermilk biscuits!!  Lemon poppyseed that will be used for some blueberry and cream shortcakes.

pistachio bread loaves and banana bread

Almond poppy seed bread loaves.
Well as u can see we had quite a productive day and also made 2 batches of my pie dough, cranberry lemon pecan cookie dough, peanut butter cookies, lavender shortbread cookies and also some cherry almond muffins.
Tomorrow will be another full day of baking and prepping things for a big catering job I have on sunday.  Gingerman race track will be the site of the party and will be a nice brunch.  I will take more pics and share what we are working on.  I am making a new line of savory goodies called Chicken Scratch Gourmet, which first on the line up to take to market this week will be my stuffed zucchini, and fresh made bruschetta and baguette bread loaves and also if I have enough tomatoes ready a fresh pasta sauce and fettucini pasta noodles.
Have a blessed evening and try to keep cool!!
