Mower madness

Today I attempted to use the mower on the rough grass and blackberries down the back. I got down the track ok and was able to do a pretty good job on the flattest areas but anywhere there was the slightest rise or unevenness it proved useless. Getting back up the track proved challenging with such poor traction. Eventually, after all kinds of runups, digging and pushing I was back in the flat paddock.

Late evening bottled first batch of plum wine and moved next batch from brewing barrel to demijohn. The concoction was super active, bubbling right up through the airlock.

Plum Wine

Plum Wine

With an excess of plums and apparently to much spare time, I decided to try and make wine. The process is reasonably simple, so I have high hopes.
No doubt as other fruit come ready I'll be experimenting with other flavours.

Autumn bounty

It's harvest time and wine is brewing. This year we got our first real crop of pumpkins, a few of which are pictured here. Also, impressive grape production resulted in 4 litres (7kg) of fermented fruit and an equal amount of cider. Winter is shaping up to be tasty.May 18, 2013  autumn  wine  pumpkin
