“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
I hope all of my US readers had a fantastic Thanksgiving Day celebration last week! Feeling thankful came really easy for me this year… God has blessed us generously, and I’m finding that sometimes the biggest doses of thankfulness can be found in the smallest things.
Other than that, my life has revolved around MILK this week.
1. Get up in the morning to milk.
2. Start a new batch of cheese to keep the milk from taking over my fridge.
3. Go back outside that evening to milk again.
This is the first year I’ve had an official cheese press and I’m having waaaaaay too much fun. So far I’ve done farmhouse cheddar, Gouda, and Romano– and I’m planning on doing a bunch of mozzarella and ricotta this coming week as well. Right now we have milk coming out of our ears. In another month and a half, we’ll have nothing when we dry up the cow–but such is the cycle of seasonal food.
