Neil got some hop rhizomes from a friend last year:
And this year we have hops! Willamettes for those in the know.
I got an elderberry shrub this spring,
And a domestic variety later this summer.
And while they’re too small to produce many berries, it allowed me to positively ID a HUGE shrub right near my house. So now those berries are fermenting on the kitchen counter.
Arsnic free*, I promise.
*brownie points for getting my literary reference.
