Winter Market 2013
I'll have a few of these Rock Cabin Birdhouses at the Farmers Market of the Ozarks in December (Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings). They're not my favorite birdhouse to make (very time consuming), but they look awesome and mine still looks great after two winters outside... It's a solid secure birdhouse any bird would be proud to call home.
New this Christmas at the Farmers Market of the Ozarks!
"The Chapel" All proceeds from the sale of this birdhouse will go to Lifeline Christian Mission
Living-Roof Cottage August 2013
Boswell - the garden cat - house sitting...
July Market ~ In the new pavilion!
-Dissolve 2 packets unflavored gelatin in 1 cup water (on stove) over warm heat.
-Add 3/4 cup corn starch and 6 tablespoons corn syrup.
-Stir until it forms a thick paste without lumps - then quickly add 8 cups birdseed.
-Stir the seed mixture until it is thoroughly coated with the paste. Spoon into two greased Bundt pans. I also insert a wire circle into each wreath (it helps to hold the birdseed and wreath together longer).
-Refrigerate for 1 hour then remove wreaths from pans and let dry overnight - turn them over to allow them to dry completely...
-Attach string, jute or ribbon ~ hang outside ~ watch the show!
*Use within one week - otherwise they start to look moldy :(
*They'll melt in the rain!
