A True Reserve

Today I harvested pak choy, lettuce greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes (they're finally coming ripe), so dinner will be good tonight. And then some.

I harvested calendula flowers, goldenrod blossoms and violet leaves and started some more infused oils.

I made some art and finally bottled some mead that's been sitting in its carboy for all too long. I had labeled this "emergency mead" and recalled having to scramble to make it with what I had on hand for reasons akin to poor planning in the moment. I had to pull out my brewing notes to see what was in it … and it looks to be rose petal mead, but I left the name as is … because, hey … you never know. Right?

That's what I made today.

Reminds me of a batch Leo brewed up one time. He mixed and tasted and mixed and tasted..and tasted. Then he came down the stairs sideways and took a nap! When he woke up he could not remember what he had mixed so it became Mystery Mead. :)

How wonderful! I have actually never tried mead before. There is a place locally that gives mead making tours which I would love to check out.
