The history of St. James Restaurant started in 1948 when Bill and Evelyn Freeman purchased the St. James Hotel.

Jonathan James, a Pennsylvania farmer who moved to Indiana in 1860, built the St. James Hotel in 1878. By 1948 the once proud Hotel had turned into a deteriorating run down tavern until its purchase by the Freeman family.

Over the years, the St. James has continued to grow and expand. In 1979 a new dining room was added and in 1983 the second story that once housed the hotel rooms was remodeled into a lounge and banquet room. A new bar was built in 1991, as well as other remodeling.

Keep in mind that Goat Girl Soaps is alive and well! Have been soaping like crazy and are restocked with all the favorites and many new scents are racked and curing, ready soon for holiday giving. Go to her page, Goat Girl Soaps to see her show schedule. She will be vending near you soon!

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure to make some custom wrapped soaps for a baby shower in Georgia! The theme was a little pumpkin on the way! I had so much fun getting to create this custom wrapping, first by stamping pumpkins and leaves on the paper and then getting to make these super cute pumpkin wax seals!!!

Looking for a custom gift or party favor? Just ask!! We can help bring your visions to life!

An experiment that didn't work out color-wise. I have lemon spice jalapeños and black Hungarian hot peppers. Processed the colors individually but as usually happens with purple veggies, purple turns green when cooked. So my Boilermaker Candy is more like Packers Candy.😂 But still Cowboy Candy, in pints. Offered for $6/pint.

Starting a short info series, " Meet the Cluckers". First up, I was able to take a picture of my rooster. I have named him Rooben. Not sure of his breed. He's either a Production Red, or a Starlight Green Egger. He is always trying hard to be where I'm NOT! As long as he keeps it that way, he won't be dinner. He's 6 months old, we shall wait and see....🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓🐓

Today, just a little gourdcrafting. It's been slow and tedious, but finally making progress. The end finishing is our development as there are no instructions anywhere for this canteen style. The rawhide and sinew work comes this weekend. Once we get it all figured out production will go steadily forward.

8am 66 degrees, 77% humidity. How do I prepare for a high heat index like today?
1. Chore early to get the animals around early so they can be comfy for the day.
2. Feed and water flowing. Today that meant moving 15 gal water and 100 # feed.
3. Fans on turkey poults. Adjust throughout the day to equalize temps. Air flow is vital to avoid respiratory issues. Also, the barn has a thermostat controlled peak fan.
4. Move mobile fence to heavy shade for sheep. Though shorn, they already have 1/4 in fleece on.
5. Monitor weather for thunderstorms to avoid the sheep getting soaked.
6. Irrigation is running early to not scald plants.

Stay inside the rest of the day and get caught up on inside work.
