mead from the permaculture plot

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.

fruit out of the garden

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.
