the breadfarm. they make crazy delicious breads, which admittedly are kind of pricey. this is not a complaint, honestly, just a fact. they make the kinds of loaves that never last very long, either. this loaf of sour cherry and lemon bread lasted four hours in our house. here it is, toasted with butter. oh my.
the lavender wind farm on whidbey island. you know we grew up there, and yet we still managed to get lost once. my sister has a friend who had some lotion she bought here and she smelled it and promptly told me we needed to take a trip there. i'm so glad we did. it was so serene and beautiful, there were all sorts of lovely little paths to follow through the fields, they had cute chickens and we both bought some lavender. i bought some to make into sachets, and some to cook with. just this afternoon i made a lavender simple syrup for iced tea, which is quite delicious.
cascadia mushrooms had a stall, and they were selling my favorite thing, mushroom growing kits! this one is soaking as we speak, and i'm getting ready to make it a "humidity tent" and set it up downstairs. the oyster mushrooms we grew were great, but it's agreed that we all like shitake mushrooms better.
the anacortes mural project. this was the first time i'd seen these lovely ladies, and i had to take their photo. they seem to be having a pretty good time.
