I made butter!! I made butter!!

So, today I made butter. I will do a full post on how to do it. It is time consuming and a little bit finicky....but oh so satisfying. And worth it.

This is my butter keeper. With butter in it. My mom got it for me for my birthday. I love it. There is about 1/2 cup of beautiful bright yellow, very lightly salted, homemade butter. From organic REAL milk. I feel like a pioneer woman today. 

A full day in the garden, greenhouse and our soon to be house next door. Brutal hard work. And in my spare time, I made 100 non-GMO soy candles for the store. My god I LOVE it. I am going to sleep well tonight.

House next door?
Well you surely did a heck of a lot yesterday. Didn't know you made soy candles. Pioneer woman indeed! Feels good heh. my squash planted..the seeds I mean. Wish us luck.

I wish you luck with your squash. I really hope I am successful this year too. I love butternut soup and haven't been able to grow a single one. I am using an abundance of manure this year!!

Oh yes...I have been making soy tea lights for a few years. I make a pretty lovely candle now. I bought a mold to make votives this time. I forgot the darn wicks though, so next time.
