Something New is Brewing

Mason's fly-sparging his mash bed. That's beer-speak, y'all!
The leaves are at peak color, the sun has been gloriously warm every afternoon and Mason's been brewing up something new: all-grain beer. (Because he doesn't have enough to do, like finishing the bedroom wall, shredding a huge pile of leaves, etc, etc...)

The new brewing technique takes a lot more time, but less money, so you can understand the appeal.  Give us a month or two, and we'll let you know how the first batch turns out. Until then, we'll just keep drinking our high-dollar homebrews.

That's a lemon tree seedling in the pot;
some microgreens that got macro on me; arugula;
lettuce and peppers in the background.

In other news, we've finally set the last post for the perimeter of the veggie garden, where the lettuce is doing fantastic; started to finish the bedroom wall; planted hydrangeas, a Florida Sunshine illicium, lilies and a sad little spruce tree; and just been keeping up with all of the chores of a house in the woods.

And yes, I know, it's been nearly a month since my last blog entry. I promise, I'm trying to be better. In a couple of weeks, I'll be working one fewer day every week, giving me more time at home. Yes, this makes Mason very happy: one more buddy on the mountain to hang with.

Can you see that HUGE spider web?
