We have KITTENS available for adoption! The are about 3 months old, and are spayed/neutered, microchipped, have age-appropriate vaccinations, have been treated for fleas and worms, and are ready to go home! $65 adoption fee payable to Panora PETS , you must sign a no-declaw agreement to adopt these beautiful babies.

They have been living in my home for the past 2 months, and are used to other cats, dogs and even a bunny. :) They're cute, cuddly, litterbox trained and utterly delightful! They will all be at Prairieland Herbs available for adoption on Friday and Saturday of this week. If you are considering adopting, please bring a kitty carrier, as these guys are ready to go home! :)

NOW is the time to be making holiday gifts that need to be infused, tinctured, or otherwise "soak". Yesterday I whipped up a bunch of jars of vanilla sugar. The vanilla beans will happily sit in the sugar (I used raw turbinado sugar) for a month, flavoring the sugar....mmmm. Basically I just cut vanilla beans in half lenghtwise, put them in pint and quart jars, and filled the jars with sugar. But this blog post describes the whole process much better, and has pretty pictures to boot. And, by the way, buying vanilla beans in the store is sooooo expensive. If you want a bunch for baking, cooking, or making your own vanilla sugar or vanilla extract, I'd recommend calling Ameriherb and ordering some. They're delicious, plump, and reasonably priced.
