    What's new in your cellar?

    I never would of thought about shipping in the heat. Just got another 11 inches of snow in 2 hours here. For me I only worry about stuff freezing. I wonder what kind of window that leaves me.:snw

    What's for Dinner?

    I agree, you guys have wonderful looking meals and honestly I haven't heard of most of them, nor do we have that type of ingredients up here. It is mostly blah, Norweigan cooking up here. Meat and potatoes and don't do anything suspicious. As the kids leave the nest I find it harder to...

    What's new in your cellar?

    I have ph strips that you color match and most definitely way on that end of the color chart. The first wine I made read 3.6. Ok, I will adjust this bucket I am just brewing and leave the kit alone. Thank you and jburtner. Especially for the explanation of why we need more acid.

    What's new in your cellar?

    I am pretty new still to wine making so I got a kit a White Zinfandel and it doesn't say anything about checking ph but I did, so I would have an idea what it should be right. It was 4.4. I left it since it gave no instruction to change it. I am new to drinking wine too, but have found I can...

    What R you doing today?

    It is a 1989 Lincoln town car limousine. We bought it when all the 6 kids were still home. Needed a vehicle that we could comfortably go on a trip and have a trunk for luggage. Got tired of being a can of sardines in the Suv. My husband and I loved it, put the partition up and no hearing the...

    What R you doing today?

    Besides the routine farm chores, I am working on transplanting seedlings to solo cups. So far I have 279 plants transplanted. Today I am mostly working on transplanting Carolina Reapers. I wish I had a greenhouse, I do this every year, and every year I say I am going to cut back. My quest...

    Spring has sprung

    Me Too!! Just lots of ugly, very dirty snow. Patiently waiting!:ft I do love the pictures and I know our turn must be coming soon. The geese have come in like crazy and there is nothing to eat but snow.

    Other Kit Ratings

    I think this would be a great idea, since I am even new to wine drinking and finding it hard to know even what kind of taste I like. I did buy a kit, hoping this shows me what a wine is suppose to taste like at different stages. My grape wine from my grapes isn't tasting to good but the...

    What's for Dinner?

    We made three kinds of bacon from our pigs we grew last summer. Marinaded all week. Most of the spices were grown from the garden last summer. One was pepper bacon, a sweet bacon and a recipe with bourbon that had no name. So I named it I don't know bacon because then when I ask "What do you...

    What's in your glass tonight?

    Ok, According to his website he just has plum right now but I think he is getting ready to release some new ones. I don't get to Fargo often but my son got married and became a traitorous Minnesotan so I hope to wander that way more often and will most certainly check it out. Thank you!

    What's in your glass tonight?

    I had read on here that someone really enjoyed North Dakota Chocolate Rhubarb wine and so I started a search for it. I love trying products from our own state because we often grow a lot of base products but do not get to finish them due to lack of people/resources. In town, I did find a small...

    Who has been pruning?

    I only have two vines, but I didn't know what to use to tie with that would stay either and that is what I used was zip ties. Borrowed them my husband, he has lots of different colors and I use a different color for every year, so I know how growth is going. I truly appreciate you posting...

    What's for Dinner?

    Good point, here are my excuses. 1.) Our farm yard is small about 13 acres and I already have 4-6 cows and calves, 2 pigs and about 150 chickens. Two are milk cows. So someone would have to go. 2.) I was told that if I ever got sheep it would be expected of me to sheer them and weave my own...

    What's new in your cellar?

    Ok, so more like a freshly plowed field in the spring time. That always has a good smell of new things to come. I was hoping it wasn't open your mouth on a windy day in ND kind of taste. LOL
