So Far harvest season has been extremely good

Recommended Posts

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!

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.

As I said before, I can suggest the first official Bodhi Linux party at your place this season next year :)

There is a possibility I will be in US next year :)

Ah, OK. Yes my message box was full. Thanx for attention.

 

Music: very mysterious, spiritual and good for meditation :)

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

ahhh yes.....  been a long time since i heard that one....  wow.

 

spaghetti sauce was nice after 6 hr cookdown.  usually with more tomatoes and time it cooks for 10-14 hrs and is so delicious.

 

salad and baked potatoes from the garden.  100% organic!  time to sit and relax - dr. appt first thing in the a.m.

well the grapes are turning.  veraison has started and i busted my butt yesterday and this AM to get the nest on the vines.  I seriously need new nets badly - but this is high pro nets - the same they use in california and france and wherever else they grow grapes and use nets.  birds are bad new.  one bird got in my nets last year and ate 1/2 of a row of grapes.  do you know how many bottle i lost because of that!  so i was forced to get this done before the storms come today and tonight as well as throughout the week.

 

lost a chicken last night.  

 

just made a batch of pickles and a bread.

 

maybe have some pinot noir later and make a salad.

 

That's all from Hooterville.
