I hardly have enough time to post what I'd like these days, but I've got a second =)

The root beer is tasty, but needs more time to carbonate itself. We've got four more liters left from two gallons, and each one tastes better than the last. Our beer has been brewing for two weeks, and we're going to try to bottle it tonight or tomorrow!

My current project is sprouting wheat. I wasn't sure if the wheat we had would work, but I gave it a shot, and they've starting to grow! I'll post a picture soon =) I'm going to sprout lentils, too, and use both for breads and salads.

The night before last, we went into our backyard and picked our dinner. I haven't tasted anything like it! The salad had homemade pear vinegarette on it, and topped with black berries from our patch. It was oh so tasty! It's unbelievable to be able to walk outside and grab our dinner.

OH! I'd like to take a moment of silence for our beloved Herman sourdough starter...  He passed away soon after my last batch of bread. Apparently he didn't take the switch to whole wheat as easily as we have. He will be missed!
