I got a great deal on some strawberries today.
I sliced them up and into the dehydrator they went.
Not enough to make wine with. Going to have to bottle the wines I have bulk aging soon. That means a lot of cleaning and de-labeling of bottles. I will need those empty carboys come harvest time. Very excited for harvest this year as I have some friends that are getting into the hobby.

The hops vines that my friends Julie and Mike sent to me are growing well. 4 out of 5 made it right away. I think the 5th vine may be starting to come back after all.
 Can't wait for fresh hops this year.

 Kat bought me a grain mill for my birthday. I was very happy. Now just to order some barley and malt it.
