Last night the first time I could see steam off the compost pile!

quote Casper Star Tribune "A Natrona County wildfire that destroyed 12 homes, killed countless livestock and pets and displaced more than 1,300 people began Saturday in a woodchip pile at the Casper landfill."

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

The city burned half the county their steamy pile of compost got outta hand.

We got evacuated and spent three long days displaced in a motel not knowing if we still had a house....
We were fortunate and the fire got within 100 feet and did NOT consume us..

From one bountiful basket gift and one measly spud cut into quarters...a little rick and a bag
of miracle grow potting soil (which was reclaimed) ...came about 5 lbs of these really
delicious purple spuds....what a nice surprise. Harvest is over  only a few carrots remain.

Very nice. I just bottled a batch of plum mead with lavender. I bet those little buggers are packed with flavor. What exactly are you making with those?

I juiced them and introduced sweet mead yeast and some cane sugar to up the gravity....
Should be some type of wine.  May decide to champagne bottle and sparkle, not sure yet.

No Pete, they are smallish wild plums. Between the size of a dime and a quarter.
 Mostly seed but HUGE flavor and goodness. They are in primary fermenter as I type. 
The bouquet they give off is intoxicating in and of itself.

I found some VIDA San Luis and am thinking I like the taste of both San Luis varietials
I have tried better than other mezcals. It just bodes more pleasant on my taste buds.

9 months later.....


Until I took a dip with the wine thief, there was Not a pellicle. I let in Oxygen and got this... :P
Taste was pretty funky!

Well over a year has passed and the warning comes up over 120 days...yeah I know...here is that beer today
as it was tapped from the keg...the flavor is kind of like Pears..some barnyard hay..but with a sour flat thing on the tougue...there is little head and it comes across flat ....maybe I can pick up some foam in the kegerator but i am thinking this one is sans head with a little short lived lace ....Pure lambic+no fruit is kind of good in it's own way.

FUNKEEEE
