Its sunday evening now. I worked my early shift too, then came home and fell asleep. Ooops.I answered the comment and am drinking coffee now.
My plum wine is fermenting nicely. The first night it exploded out of the demijohn. A mass of seething, moving foam ran up and out. I had to divide it untill it settled down. It is a cloudy liquid now, but needs straining in a few days.
The dandelion wine is in a cupboard, finishing off now. It is cloudy, but has five months to clear. The wine making from flowers or fruit is a slow process...need patience much like gardening and growing flowers from seeds.
I got a lot of comments about the chocolate scented candle, thanks!! I love the sweet smell of it.Makes me want a bar of chocolate..
The garden needs a lot of work still. I have four days of work before i can get to it. A whole day in the garden sounds like bliss.
The tomato plants are growing madly now. They have a half dozen large green tomato's on them and more forming. As an experiment with a store bought tomato they have grown into two foot high plants. I just wanted to see if i could get the seeds to germinate.
I read a very complicated way of getting seeds to dry, involving soaking, fermenting, washing, and drying. Very labour intensive.. I grew mine in a simpler way than that.
I'm slowly putting my links to blogs back together. Will be posting loads again soon,Good night world!!
