Bread-making, Blue & White, and Babies


A while ago, I read Annie’s Granny‘s post about her beautiful buns and decided to try the recipe one of these days. Today turned out to be that day. I used a cup each of whole wheat, bread, and all-purpose flour and threw it all in the bread machine on the dough cycle. Lookin’ good so far. Going to make 4 sandwich rolls and some rolls for dinner, to go with the chicken I’ll throw in the roaster shortly. I’ll let you know how they come out.

On the garden front, I’m happy to report that all the baby cukes and watermelon I planted out the other day are thriving. This is good, but it means I have to murder 6 helpless little baby plants in very short order…I hate doing that. Sigh… The mums and gazania I did that day are looking great, too. No beans sprouting yet, though.

All my annual seeds I’ve been sticking in my containers are sprouting and growing like gangbusters so far. Looking forward to purty flowers, barring any of Mother Nature’s nasty tricks.

In my side-of-the stairs container garden, still have lots of alyssum, while the convolvulus and salvia are blooming nicely, too. Sat on the stairs for a minute, and noticed what a pretty picture the blue & white made. What do you think?

Mouseover to see bigger pic.

Blue and white

Also forgot to post this pic of my baby tomato the other day. Grown since then, but you get the idea…

That’s about it for now. I’ll let you know how the rolls came out…

  1. God luck with the rolls. I made FOUR batches last Saturday! I was only planning on three, but I used one dark colored pan that got the rolls too brown, so I ended up making another whole batch. Now I’m slicing the dark ones and making them into baby toast for breakfast.

    I love blue and white in the garden.
