my big plan to celebrate the permaculture plot over at the local community garden, hope takes root, is with a proper garden party. no garden party would be complete without some libation, and what better libation than one made with fruits of the garden. with that in mind i harvested everything that ripened this year.
not too impressive of a haul – less than a quart of red currants, black currants, gooseberries, and jostaberries. but i carry on. washed them off, dropped them in a 2 quart jug and covered them with some partially finished mead to kick-start the fermentation and add flavor. a year from now we can enjoy this at the garden part. i hope you will be able to join me.
