Drinkable harvest

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.
