we’re finally getting rain. the flashes of lightening and rumbles in the middle of the night were sorely missed. the chickens hide under the coop (precisely why we built it off the ground) and they don’t seem to mind it so much.
perhaps, soon, we’ll be able to get the canoe into the creek and take a second voyage to mickey’s; the first one was over a year ago.
we’re a little behind last year in our gardening. we didn’t start seeds this inside and didn’t get them in the ground until after memorial day, so now we have one little cuke and a handful of cherry tomatoes.
i’m taking the next couple of fridays off, so i hope to tidy up the kitchen. we have a few dry-food cupboards that could stand to be reorganized.
the peach tree is four years old and is huge. i should get a picture after the rain this week; she’s shoosting up into the sky.
i’ve also now got two mickey’s employees interested in purchasing personal kombucha… which has gotten me thinking small businessey. i think i’ve decided on static cling labels (like oil change reminders) on which to write the flavor, and possibly a logo, once i come up with one. i had an idea to call it “bekee’s booch”, but not sure i like having my name in there.
i also need to consider the implications of not getting the bottles back; i might need to invest in some glassware… and some sort of continuous brew system. it seems like it might be a good idea to have a 5 gallon container atop the fridge with a spigot that i can just empty into bottles and flavor.
another issue: the storage situation i’m running into with all of the bottles and jars. i need to find some way to have them all in the kitchen. i might need to get a metal shelf instead of wall mounted because of the weight, five gallons of liquid is over 40 pounds.
