Gardening, Baking, and Nature/Gärtnern, Backen und Natur

Euro Cuisine Yogurt Maker - YM80Gluten-Free Baking: More Than 125 Recipes for Delectable Sweet and Savory Baked Goods, Including Cakes, Pies, Quick Breads, Muffins, Cookies, and Other DelightsCountry Baking: Simple Home Baking With Wholesome Grains and the Pick of the HarvestVery early this morning, Jonathan, Miriam, and Veronika went to the community garden with their daddy to do some more work.  It got hot very quickly so that they couldn't work very long.  The rest of the day was spent turning the mattresses of the children and washing all the bedding.  I also baked two different kinds of scones, one from Country Baking and one from Gluten-Free Baking.  Then I baked a banana bread and a no-knead yeast loaf of bread.  We got some milk at our Amish farm and I made yogurt out of some.  We use this yogurt maker

Jonathan has been taking some nature pictures recently.  Here are a few:

Sehr früh am Morgen sind Jonathan, Miriam und Veronika mit ihrem Papa zum Schrebergarten gefahren, um dort weiter zu arbeiten.  Es wurde jedoch schnell ziemlich heiß, so daß sie nicht zu lange arbeiten konnten.  Den Rest des Tages haben wir mit großer Wäsche verbracht:  Wir haben alle Kindermatratzen gewendet und die Bettwäsche gewaschen.  Während die Waschmaschine arbeitete, habe ich zwei Sorten "Scones" aus den Backbüchern oben gebacken, dazu noch ein Brot und einen Bananenkuchen.  Beim Amischbauernhof haben wir Milch geholt und ich habe aus einem Teil Joghurt gemacht.  Wir mögen diesen Joghurtbereiter.   

Jonathan hat in letzter Zeit draußen viel fotografiert.  Oben sind einige seiner Fotos.

  1. Such pretty red birds! We have one up here, the pine grosbeak and I haven't seen them yet this year. Wonderful pictures. Thanks. :)

  2. Becky, we haven't seen pine grobeaks here although they sometimes spend the winters in this region. My son's picture is a purple finch which is much smaller than the pine grosbeak. I just took a look at your moose with baby. They are amazing! I spent a year in Canada twenty years ago and remember them fondly.

  3. Lovely photos, I have just got back into bread making. the smell is lovely. cheers Marie

  4. Marie, what kind of breads do you like to bake?

  5. Mmmm, your baking and yogurt-making are inspiring!
    We're making chocolate bread as Christmas gifts this year. Other years we've made cranberry-orange bread.
    Jonathon, the pictures you've taken are just beautiful, you have a talented photographic eye. Thank you for sharing.


  6. Thank you, for your kind words. We are in the midst of cookie baking (take a look at our latest post). What is "chocolate bread"?
