Rachel has a great tutorial for laundry soap up on her blog. For some reason, I seem to have enough detergent to get me through the next decade or so (including some that I made using a similar recipe), but in case you don't, you should definitely try it out. And I'm super excited that I won a giveaway on Rachel's blog! I've sung the praises of her Baby Wipe Juice before (still love it on T's little bum) and I can't wait to try some of her other goodies. I will definitely post about them when they arrive; hopefully the Canada Post strike won't slow them down too much.

I tried making mustard awhile back and nearly keeled over, it was so hot. I've since learned that the trick seems to be at least partly in aging it for at least a week to mellow things out. And after seeing this pretty post, I think I just might have to try it again, especially since it's barbeque season once again!

Cranberry Orange Rhubarb popsicles? In pretty jars, no less? Yes, yes, yes, please! Three of my favourite things!
I could peruse this blog all day. Every day. I love all of the white with bright pops of colour. I'm thinking of something along those lines for our new place, when we move. Speaking of which, want to buy a house?
And who is that happy Australian farmer, you ask? I don't know, but I do know that one of my pictures (of my sister's spiced crabapples) was published in this issue of Gardening Australia! Tee-hee!
How's that for a scattered assortment? Happy Thursday! How is your garden growing?
