Baking shortbread…

===I was made aware of/invited to a local SCA event, which has a potluck aspect.  So I am baking shortbread.  I have always really liked shortbread… it is remarkably easy to make; You cream one pound butter, cream in the sugar (a cup), then 4 cups sifted flour….knead that all up, put in your pans (I have a nice stoneware pie plate I use)…and cook at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes.

===Next on the agenda for the day:  Plotting out where the closer-to-the-house garden will be, and figuring out how I want to do the cold-frames for the early start of planting there.  I already have a general idea of what I want to do, which is to make a raised bed, and then place the (thinner) hinged frame on top of that, so that I get the early start aspect, then I can remove them when it gets warmer, then place them back on for winter gardening near the house.   I also am thinking on how to put a not-ugly protective fence to keep the local wildlife from eating the plants…(chuckles)
