Does anyone use a dutch cheese press? I really like the looks of this press. Right now I can only make up to a 2 lb cheese at a time. I have a press from Hoeggers, and while I am pleased with it, I'd like an additional press that can press either a larger cheese, 5-10lbs, or maybe I could stack 2 cheese molds and make a couple at once.
I was sleeping, and then had to get up to drain the creme fraiche for tommorrows orders, and I still have 29 minutes left to go for the fig and blk cherry yogurts.
The kids have a cold, I think its about the only one they've had this year. I've been fighting a bad sore throat for the last 2 nights, I'll be surprised if it gets much worse than that. I don't sicken easily. What Mommy has the time to be sick anyway?
Gale's udder was quite a bit bigger tonight. With her other 3 calves, the two heifers were a week or two early, and her 1 bull was 6 days late. She is 12 days out by my calculations. She is in ideal condition and I've been feeding her according to my new milk fever prevention regime and I consider her to be the ultimate test. It would be REALLY nice if the stars would align and somehow make this calf a heifer. Our lovely heifer, Henrietta, is such a tame puppydog that I'm literally tripping over her every milking and have to push her out the gate to clean the stalls because she is planted right in my lap!
Uh-Oh. It's 1:38 am and I just heard Ida May crying. And the yogurt still has 19 minutes.....
