When I am experimenting with plant dye, the boyos complain about the stinky. I have moved into the unfinished cob building. The Teahouse it is referred too.
I need to make some cob and finish the windows. There will be less wind coming through and possibly less mosquitoes. But, I do not know when that will happen. There is a place for a counter and I need to build that as well.
Right now, I using an old turkey fryer that was just laying around. It was not in the best of the condition. I am playing with bean soaking water again and when I went out after raising the flame a tad, the line to the propane at the junction to the fryer was on fire! An earth building is a good place for this action to take place. I will either have to fix the hose, get a new fryer, or find another useable heat source for my dye. Most plant dyes need some type of heat source.
I do like having a place to work that I can keep things set up. A place to work as well that has less chance to go up in flames too. With a gravel floor, spilling is not a big deal either. I just wish the pumpkin pulp dyeing had turned out better. Oh well. More experimentation needed!
