Well today I spent some time smoking up the forge. I figured it was time to chase the spiders out. I started fires in the stove and the forge itself. I didn't work any iron but with the cooler fall air I figure it wont be long before I am back in the forge. It also gave me a chance to burn some sticks.
I also picked some Lavender while in the garden today. I guess I had smelled lavender soaps and such before but this was the first time I smelled the plant itself. I can really see how it would taste good with roast pork or lamb.
