It was about time I updated the header to reflect more of what’s going on around here right now, at the height of a glorious Minnesota summer. Left to right: Rowan picking strawberries, my raspberry hedge, my hollyhock/strawberry/asparagus area next to the rain barrel, a ginger bug, and Anneke eating an onion.
I have a new batch of ginger beer that is very close to being done, but I am going to hold back on posting about it until I know for sure whether it was a success or not. We did make it to the bottling stage this time; but we tasted it last week and it was still very flat. Will try it again soon.
In the meantime, check out this blog, The Simple Green Frugal Co-op. It’s my new favorite, so much useful information and updated frequently by a group of different writers. I also added their RSS feed to the right of this page so you can I can see what they’re up to at all times.
