harvested around 250-270 garlic, 275 onions, beans, slad materials, herbs, tons of potatoes, and still more to dig, tomatoes already and peppers enough that i am making a big pot of spaghetti sauce right now,  strawberries and blueberries for fresh eating and jams that i made, cukes, raspberries, figs are all over the tree, carrots, bunching onions, chinese cabbages, and a few more.

 

earliest we have ever gotten tomatoes and the onions yellow candy and red candy - the yellow candy a lot of them are the size of a softball and even bigger.  what a year for my onions.  3-5 eggs everyday.  apples and asian pears are doing nicely.

 

some ales and porters i have made and a decent looking binch of grapes n the vineyard for wine!

 

I am smiling!





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I wish i could send some of you something in appreciation and friendship.  outside the country in impossible and inside is tough too.  somethings too perishable.  other things are just very law oriented, if you get my drift.

 

a couple of you in the US i may be able to send something this early winter depending on the temps or early spring again depending on the temps.  just need to get info and addresses etc.  but will have to see what i get.  i lost a bunch of vines and may lose a couple of older ones and the new ones i started last year the freakin wabbits killed them and a few new ones i started from cuttings died and some are doing ok - but 2 years before i can get a harvest.  last year the wine was the best ever and the french oak was sublime.  man i opened a bottle a couple of days ago that i shouldn't have and it was nice.  However i got about 1/4 of what i should be getting. and that is the downside.

actually - not to tease - but my own recipe called treebeard's porter is close to a sam smith's taddy porter or even almost a sam smith's imperial stout.  I am bottling end of week or next week a version of mine of sam smith's taddy porter and who know may be more like the imperial stout.   i ahevv to try another 2 versions with mollasses and see what that does.

 

but just opened a bottle of treebeard's porter and it is like WOWWWWWWWWW!!!!! Damn.  niceeeeeeeee.

I used ripperx

 

Anyway, although I am a metal fan, this song got me (good Canton speakers test):

no need to apologize, mates

 

This is the Lounge, after all, and 'off topic' is the order of the day

 

No stress --- carry on. I recognized the fripp name from when my brother borrowed a friend's CD and he was in this certain phase of exploring guitar music and he showed me who the Paul was in les Paul
