Garden Pictures and Wine Update

Here are some pics of the camp garden that I took the other day during a break in the rain.  It’s really coming along!  I picked some lettuce and spinach and a few chives for a salad to go with dinner the other night.  It’s SO satisfying to be able to go pick something and take it right to the table!


Strawberries, Spinach and Onions



Cherry and Roma Tomatoes and Lettuce



Bell Peppers, Lettuces, Onions, Herbs and Cherokee Yellow Bush Beans



This is the same bed as the previous one, just a bit closer.



Patty Pan Squash and Variegated Oregano


This picture is the dandelion wine, now strained, but still murky…  I am unsure about it’s color, but am pleased to report that it at least has begun to smell like wine!  I think I’ll strain it a few more times with some coffee filters to see if I can refine it bit more.  I have not been brave enough to taste it yet!  Maybe tomorrow…?



  1. I have not tried making my own wine. We did make Kahlua many years back...took months to age and it tormented us every time we opened the cabinet that we couldn't try it yet!

  2. I am so jealous of your garden-- we live in a condo right now (bleh). I've always wanted to make my own wine... maybe I'll do it!


I love to hear from you - keep those comments coming!
