Good Random Fun

This week for good, I have wine.  We racked a lot of wine this weekend.  I still have about nineteen gallons in the carboys.


In a couple of weeks, we’ll bottle about ten gallons.

It will get to start filling the new rack my dad made for me (but I don’t have it moved out here yet).


It’s good stuff!

Over the weekend, I noticed this random sign of spring.  Horn boogers!



Marley is starting to lose his winter undercoat.  That surely means spring is just around the corner.

For fun, I’m sharing my talented cow, Maxine.



She’s ambitongrous!

Sharing with Good. Random. Fun., Mosaic Monday, Macro Monday, and Ruby Tuesday 2.

    Maxine is a very talented cow indeed… And has very sweet eyes.

    That wine looks great – unlike the mass bottle vintners, yours has a homemade style that works well as a table wine without pretense. Honest and tasty!

    Your animals are adorable, Marley unaware of (or not caring about) said booger, and Maxine even more winsome than the goats at least in these expressions.

    A hope for Spring’s arrival in a shorter time than the calendar suggests…

      It is a lot of wine, but we haven’t had good fruit harvest for a couple of years. While we had plenty, we figured we’d better stock up.

    Ambitongrous…now that’s a new one! :) I’m curious…what kinds of wine are in those pictures? What’s the kind with the “chunks” in it?

      The chunks are actually golden raisins in a sweet apple wine. The next one over is pumpkin. Then a dry apple. The last one is apple/cherry.

      In the bottles on the rack is plum.

    I’m intrigued by your wine. I used to make beer. I loved it but I got tired of seeing the race between the bacteria and the yeast.

      We had one batch turn to vinegar, but otherwise, it’s not been a problem. I did make sure to buy new equipment and we use a chemical sterilizer. It’s been great.

    Oh Maxine! :P
    Well, a girl has to wipe her nose somehow, when she can’t hold a kleenex, right? LOL!

    I’ve never heard of horn boogers, but welcome ANY sign of spring. Great shots of Maxine. She was really showing off her talent.
