Dishcloths, a Dazey butter churn, no-knead einkorn bread, and a mulberry silk eye mask…
What do these all have in common?
They're the things I'm loving this Fall!
Find out why in today's podcast — plus for more info, check out the links and images below. 🙂
Tip of the Week: Two Ways to Grow Mint from Cuttings
You can easily grow mint from cuttings and here is one way…
Cut the stem just below a node (where a leaf grows) on the plant. Remove all but the top leaves. Stick a few cuttings into a small pot with moist soil. Keep out of direct sunlight for about a week to allow it to root and adjust to its new environment. As the mint grows, replant in a larger pot or in the ground.

4 Things I’m Loving This Fall
In no particular order, here's what I'm loving this Fall…
We needed dishcloths for the kitchen, and I guess I needed to slow down and enjoy knitting. In the podcast I explain why I had a bunch of false starts before I actually got one finished… and why knitting them is helping my state of mind so much!
2. Butter Churn
I found a Dazey butter churn at an antique mall early in the summer and I couldn't pass it up! Mine is from the 1950s; Dazey churn history can be found on this page.
Here's my quick Instagram video using it — members, you may have a full thank-you video in the Members' Area from the summer.
Looking for one of these today? Homesteader Supply offers a manual butter churn based on the classic Dazey model.
3. No-Knead Einkorn Bread
I'm practicing for the Einkorn Baking eCourse that we just launched at Traditional Cooking School. Because it's now fall that means I can actually bake bread in the house! Though truth be told, I couldn't wait and was baking bread on the camp stove during the summer!
The owner of Jovial Foods, Carla Bartolucci, sent me a copy of her beautiful new Einkorn cookbook and I've been given permission to share the no-knead recipe in the class. It's a beautiful, easy recipe that you will love!
Two tools I mentioned in the podcast: the linen couche (a beautiful proofing cloth ideally suited for einkorn; pictured above) and a Lodge 6-quart enamel coated cast-iron Dutch Oven (mine's Caribbean blue; pictured in top photo).
4. Mulberry Silk Eye Mask
When I recorded this podcast, I mentioned that my mulberry silk eye mask is helping yet it was falling off during the night. Since, then I have improved — the mask now stays on all night. 🙂
I am so thrilled with it. It makes a BIG difference in how long it takes me to fall asleep and how long I am able to sleep deeply — at the end of the night, especially.
Of course, it's nothing compared to our amazing Intellibed; the mask is like the icing on the cake!

By the way, I mentioned I've been working on getting sleep for a couple year's now — here's how I first woke up to a good night's sleep.
