homebrew batch #1 continued


homebrew batch #1 in fermenter #2

more snow, bigger garden, improvements all around

pulled up thirty feet of chainlink to make garden bigger...small break in the snow to get something done on the days off

feels really nice to just walk in the gate and be able to walk halfway down the hill to the garlic and shallots. hopefully benefiting from the snowmelt under the straw mulch...soil i dug up today looked rich and black with a good ratio of manure and straw
