Seeds of Change

Today in the mail I recieved my Seeds of Change Spring 2011 seed catalouge. Hooray! I have already ordered my spring seeds from them, back in September, but flipping through it today made me so excited for Spring to arrive. (I may, however be a little premature, because just this very December morning we were seeing big fat snow flakes.) Seeds of Change is a certified organic seed retailer with practicially all the different seeds you could want, from purple cauliflower to lemon cucumbers! Makes me want to plant my whole yard! This might be a little but of a crazy undertaking, so for now I will just stick to my two raised beds.   🙂   Check out for all sorts of exciting stuff and tips on gardening from little window planters to huge sprawling gardens!

Today is bread making day, my husband is so excited! I am making this recipe at least once a week, and is it super easy and delicious, I recommend it to everyone:

Honey Wheat Bread

2 cups warm water (110+ degrees)

7 cups whole wheat flour

1 tablespoon active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup honey

1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 170 degrees.  Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add honey, and stir well.  Mix in 2 cups flour, salt and vegetable oil.  Add the rest of the flour gradually until doughy. Turn dough out unto lightly floured surface and knead for 5- 10 minutes. When well kneaded, place dough in well oiled glass bowl. Turn dough several times until coated in oil and cover with wet towel. Rise dough in preheated oven, until doubled in size (about 45 minutes.)  Place dough on lightly floured surface and punch down dough. Shape into two loaves and place into well greased 9×5 loaf pans. Put loaf pans back in preheated oven and allow dough to rise until 1 to 1 1/2 inches above top of loaf pan (about 30- 45 minutes.)  Once dough has risen, increase oven temp to 375 degrees and bake for 25 minutes.
