The past few days, I’ve been re-readingÂ The Ultimate Guide to Homesteading, and pouring over the plans inÂ Build Your Own Barrel Oven.
A barrel oven seems like a very, very cool project for an outdoor oven, but after reading the construction details and seeing how one operates, I think we will stick with our original plan to build a simple cob wood-fired bread oven next summer.
I finished a little wool soaker for a friend having a baby. Â It made for a nice break from the Christmas knitting projects, and baby garments are my favorite thing to knit.
More soon: Â this afternoon the kids and I are making pfeffernusse cookies and I hope to share our recipe later in the week.
