The #RDG-challenge is finished. But MotherOwl has been doing other thing as well.

     Uglemor har lavet sæbe igen. Dette er årets 3. omgang. Hvid sæbe med sorte strimler i. Årets to andre sæber har været omvendte, sorte med hvide strimler.

Soaping. The third soap of the year. The two first ones were black with white cut-offs in them Now MotherOwl had collected enough black cut-offs to make a white soap with black inserts. 



      VI har spist avocadoer og Uglemor har farvet garn med kernerne. Skallerne giver bare kedeligt brunligt, så de er opgivet. Men hvis man piller hinderne af kernerne, hakker dem og koger dem op et par dage i træk, farver de pink til rødt.
     Elletræerne står med gamle kogler og nye rakler. Begge dele kom også i farvegryden.

 We've been eating avocado pears. MotherOwl used the pits for dyeing. If you peel them, chop them, boil them for three or four days in a row they'll give pinkish to dark red colours. The skins give an uninteresting brownish hue. At least when MotherOwl tries.
The alder trees are right now carrying old cones and new catkins. Both went into the dyepot.

Green letters: Alder cones 1st and second bath. Orange letters: Elder catkins 1st and 2nd bath.
Blue letters: Avocado pits 1st and 2nd baht.


   Forleden var Skribenten på indkøb og kom hjem med nogle gør det selv-svampe. Vi har troligt vandet dem, og nu er de spiret eller hvad svampe nu gør.

The Writer went shopping and brought home some grow at home mushrooms. We have been faithfully watering them, and now mushrooms start to show.
