After I cleaned up the cheese pans and mess I went out and filled up the 3 water containers for the chickens. Ron filled their feed up as I was doing the water. Tomorrow I plan on putting the herbs out that I picked up today.
One of the herbs that Brandon got was some spearmint and he will be making me some mint oil to use when I make soap. He has a mint plant at home already and will make some oil from it also. All you have to do is to put some vegetable oil (or any orderless oil) in a jar and add crushed mint leaves to it. You microwave it just to get it warm and it helps the mint release its oil into the vegetable oil. He will add mint leaves as his plants get larger and when I am ready to use it all you have to do is strain the oil.
Later, take care.
