This video, which went viral, was shot by our neighbor Anne Hars a few years ago. It’s proof of the legendary broodiness and mothering instincts of Silkies.

Lest anyone think there’s just one DIY success after another here at the Root Simple compound, behold my failed attempt at a whole wheat pecan loaf. The very wet dough stuck to the banneton and got ripped off when I tried to transfer it to the dutch oven. I baked it anyways and it tasted alright, but it didn’t rise much in the oven.
Speaking of failures, I need to blog this week about why I’m hopped up on Benadryl. Hint: it involves a freak summer storm and a bunch of angry bees. Stay tuned.
It’s been an unusually mild and pleasant July here in Los Angeles. And, while this is not cool to admit, I’m a secret Washingtonia robusta fan.
