I finally got the hot water working at the kitchen sink!
Brought up and installed the drop down writing desk, hung some shelves and installed the water closet ceiling panel. Mom made this beautiful Roman Shade for the kitchen window. Thanks Mom!!!
With all of the fires, the air quality is pretty bad right now and I can just barely make out the Temblor Mountain range across the valley, but the temps have subsided and it is so peaceful up here this week.
Still aways away from harvest and distillation, but these Blue Agaves that Doug Richardson gave us to plant at the Hideout are loving the Carrizo summer.
I met a farmer a couple years ago that farms the Agave at La Paloma Ranch and decided that I wanted to try some myself.
I have now discovered https://venturaspirits.com has distilled La Paloma Tequila as well as Wilder Gin, which is distilled using Juniper berries. This year the Junipers at the Hideout have more berries than I have ever seen!
How about some Hideout Gin to go with our future Carrizo Tequila?
