The local Audobon group is having their Winter Birds presentation THIS FRIDAY!! On Friday, December 11, at 6:30, Rich MacIntosh and Robin Corcoran will present a slideshow with identification tips on the Winter Birds of Kodiak. This would be great to attend so kids can know which birds are visiting their bird feeder!!! You have to register ahead, link is below :)
Feeding your starter (as explained in video):
Thursday evening: 1/4 cup warm water, 1/3 cup flour
Friday: 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup flour
Saturday: 1 + 1/2 cup warm water, 2 cups flour
Sunday: 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup flour (once or twice depending on amount you need..if only doing once, feed it in the evening)
Note: Leave sourdough on counter, covered with towel in between feeding. Sourdough should be bubbly each morning when you check it. That indicates it is alive and well!
If you weren't able to get a kit, and want to do this event with us, we copied some excellent information about starting your own sourdough from this excellent book
As always, many thanks to our 4-H parents, who always (and especially now) are imperative to keeping 4-H alive!
