Mickey, that’s actually a very interesting hobby. Do you have a reverse-greenhouse or something? Do you have to keep them cooler? or do you just water them more? I’m in the northeast, so we don’t really have a problem with plants… Well, most people don’t. I tend to ahhhh…. forget this whole “watering” thing. The plants must think I’m a sadist. I used to specifically request plants that could take a beating and still thrive, but they STILL couldn’t take my abuse. What I’ve had luck with though is chives and thyme. Both are great for cooking, and grow like the weeds they are, so I guess I’ve finally found something that’s more resilient than my negligence… I try to be kind to the rest of the plant would though, by not purchasing anymore, or when I do, I make sure to gift them to good homes. My mother’s done rather well with the orchids I’ve bought.

CR1, brewing is awesome. I had a friend who was into beer. He ended up having these huge graphs and charts he made to recount his various brews. I tried brewing hard cider one year, and it wa all right, but a bit watery. may attempt it again this year and do a reduction with some of the cider, hopefully to balance the overall product out by increasing the percentages of sugars and decreasing the existing water content. Still, it’s an artform.
