It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here, so I wanted to take a moment to update everyone on what I’ve been up to. After a million things went wrong in the garden, it has definitely taken the “back burner”. This season, more than ever, it has become so apparent that I simply don’t have the space in the garden that I need. I know I should be thankful for any portion of ground that I’m able to plant in, but things have just gotten out of control. With this frustration, I’ve definitely turned my focus towards soap making.
I started making cold process soaps years ago, and it wasn’t until recently that I started selling the soaps as a way to earn extra money to save towards buying a farm. If you’re unfamiliar with the soap of the month club, you can check out that post on the main page of my blog. You can also find my soaps on Etsy in my shop. With all that being said, I just wanted to show you all what I’ve been making this week.
Don’t worry, this isn’t turning into a soap blog – at least not yet. Lol. I may start making new posts in the future on different topics, but for now – we’ll just garden. Hope you enjoy!

Those soap colors are amazing. Like looking at a ice creme store. 🙂
If you do not have enough space for veggies, et al, have you considered just growing fragrant plants to scent your soaps? Then distill or otherwise extract out the fragrance (e.g. seeping in alcohol or plant oils as just one option). Seems like a good combo for both worlds when using limited space.
I’ve actually looked into the process of making essential oils and the like – it definitely seems beyond my abilities. I still love using fresh chamomile and herbs though!
Your soaps are lovely! They look good enough to eat. 🙂 I tried soap making once, but it was a disaster!
Thanks so much for your kindness. My first loaf of soap was a total mess, too! Haha! I was still very proud though.
