July Housekeeping
Published On: July 29, 2023

July’s housekeeping post is up! This month we’re doing, well, I call it yard soda. I suppose if I were being more formal, I’d call it something like wild yeast fermented cold infused something or other.

But really, it’s yard soda.

It’s like your favorite herbs and the very best sugar cookie you’ve ever eaten had a baby, and that baby was kidnapped by the fairies, and they collected its tears in a beautiful crystal vial.

Or it’s sort of like what you always want flavored seltzer water to taste like (though it never ever ever does) plus just a little bit of sweet/funky/tangy fizz.

It’s also just about the easiest way to dabble in fermenting random stuff in jars without feeling super overwhelmed.

Details on just how I do it, plus what’s coming and going on patreon over the next few weeks are all in the post (it’s public, anyone can see it).

Now…which one of you is going to be brave enough to do this first?

Or does anyone already do this? If so, what are you doing next? I’m about to go get some goldenrod flowers and make a batch of straight sunshine…
