I visited my favorite goats this weekend  @56hooves in Loudoun County. They are mostly boys, but Farmer Deb keeps a few girls for producing milk.

People often ask me why goat milk soap. Goat milk soap is high in healthy fats that produce a creamy lather, and leave your skin feeling soft. If you have dry, irritated skin, you should try a goat milk soap and see the difference!

Did you know that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey? Sour donkey milk! I’m guessing that didn’t smell great. 🤣 but her beautiful skin was the stuff of legends.

Treat yourself to a spa experience at home with a Hawaiian Black Sea Salt Soap. Sea salt helps relax muscles, achy joints, and tired feet. Activated charcoal in black salt is detoxifying, and trace minerals from the Pacific Ocean help protect skin in a variety of ways. 

Hawaiian Black Sea Salt Soap is infused with skin-soothing herbs that were organically grown right here in my DC garden:

* CHAMOMILE - a gentle healer that helps reduce signs of aging, and accelerates skin regeneration

* CALENDULA - a long-blooming herb that conditions, hydrates, and repairs skin

* LAVENDER - an ally against acne, eczema, and other skin conditions

Order at MayappleSoaps.com and receive 10% off this month with promotional code ENDOFSUMMER. The discount is good for anything in the shop, except sale items and face masks, though I highly recommend the Hawaiian Black Sea Salt if you haven't tried it yet. Find out what all the fuss is about 😉

OMG what am I supposed to do with all these hot peppers?!?

I’ve already made salsa and pepper jam, canning like a weekend warrior, and burning my hands. Yes, I know I make urban homesteading look like a cake walk, but there’s a reason I never post pictures of canning day. It’s chaos! And stressful! Who has time to document?

I think this weekend I’ll be making pepper sauce. There’s still tons of green fruit out on the plants, so I’m nowhere near the end of this harvest. I need more ideas, more recipes. My future, unfortunately, holds many more canning days. 😳🌶😳🌶😳🌶

There’s no better way to enjoy summer’s end than bike camping. Riding slow to take it all in, laying under a giant shade tree to rest, watching herons, listening to the cicadas, reading Overstory by Richard Powers, singing ‘90s songs with friends around a campfire, and loving every minute.

Even the low moments: how we got stuck for a while under a bridge waiting for a heavy rain to pass, encountering a Copperhead snake on the trail, one flat tire, and way too many bug bites. It’s not all charming bike camping, but it’s mostly charming 🤷🏼‍♀️
