Lots of friends were at War this week. There were very few pictures and updates coming out because there’s little Wifi on the site. So maybe there will be some in next week’s report. The holiday really disrupted all the usual things this week, but some small progress got made. We heard from Amor and about his various knapping projects on Sunday. There’s a gallery.

Early Week – All went into setting up for the July 3rd celebrations. Some of Anja’s pincushions and pincushion filling went to the Artisans Market on Tuesday.
A lot of cookery happened too; more pickled strawberries, finishing the watermelon pickle, making a stew of some donated meat & root vegetables, cutting up and freezing extra onions for later soups and stews, etc.
We also set by some beets and onions and meat for borscht, but that’s for next week.
We got to taste the strawberry pickles on Tuesday. The response from about 1/2 was “too potent”. The rest were, “Weird, but good!” Salty is *not* something you associate with strawberries for certain…. Consensus seems to be that the pickles are probably not a period process, but that the sugar layering might be, but right at the tail end of period. Still hoping to find out about fruits preserved in honey. There are some conserve recipes, and all kinds for cooking them fresh and methods for drying, else all the recipes (so far) are post-1600.
Sewing – Some embroidery happened Wednesday evening (pic below) and a consult with someone on “how-to” on a t-tunic on Tuesday.
Sewing Time – Saturday – Anja spent some time on Saturday embroidering, but no one was in for the workshop time.
Herb Bunch – We didn’t have an actual meeting this week, but herbs were harvested and greens for a stew. It looks like the drought killed off Anja’s Lady’s Mantle and a couple of other things, but most of the other herbs are doing fine.
Project Day – …got hijacked by the summer tourist season for the early part of the day. Anja and Loren were run off their feet. It was past 3 before they could settle down to projects, but they were the only ones that day, so they kept on into the evening.
Amor got hold of us in the middle of the afternoon. He’s stationed up in Oertha, Barony of Eskalya. His big thing for awhile has been knapping, and he’s got some more fun tools that he’s working on.
