Yummy mail, garlic and the pantry

 We just had some yummy mail come, our regular shippment of Stonewall kitchen jams and sauces, I just love cooking with their ingredients!  We always have some for sale in the cottage too.
 Here is a close up of this years garlic, I am afraid it's a bit small, we are still waiting for our stretch of sunny days.   The growth you see here happened over one night!  That was after the one nice spring-like day that we had.
 Garlic again-so pretty. I wish I could post the smell of the earth, and the garlic too!
This is a view of our pantry, I thought maybe guests would like to see some glimpses of the makings of breakfast!  These herbs are either grown here, or are from a bulk order that I get, and are all organic. Rosemay, Basil, Chili, Raspberry, Chamomile, Spirulina...

Just to let you know

We are very sorry to let everyone know that the cottage is undergoing some maintanence this month. We cannot accept any reservations for April.  We will be up and running again by May, and the good news is, that the cottage will be fresh and have some wonderful new details.  I am planning on posting photos of our progress, so keep watching here.

more maple syrup photos

Here Dean is checking on our third batch of syrup, and the last.  We made a total of 2 and 1/2 gallons for our first year.  It tastes really great in my coffee.
