Gardening Under the Influence


Here's a link my bi-weekly article at Edhat.com. Though slightly Santa Barbara-centric, it might give you some ideas on how to expand your summer adult-beverage chops while getting your garden tuned up.

Enjoy, and remember - you can be cited for gardening with a blood-alcohol level that exceeds 0.8.

Who says you have to be sober to work in the garden? Nobody, that's who! I've got lovely fresh limes coming in and there's no end to the drinks and cocktails you can make using the lime harvest.

Sigh... It's my pathetic little dream to grow potatoes (the porch really isn't big enough), and also to learn how to distill. Though not necessarily in that order.

Nice piece, sir. Well done.

We have recently moved from Florida to live (temporarily!) in southern Illinois. Unfortunately, citrus is not an option here, but now we are in the midst of a veritable fruit basket. This area produces prodigious amounts of strawberries, blueberries, grapes, peaches, apples, plums, pears.... I'm a little hesitant to try making our own wine. I seem to remember a messy attempt by my dad years ago to make homemade blueberry wine in the basement of our apartment building. Nevertheless, we can still take advantage of all those fresh fruits to blend up a frozen cocktail or some other refreshing drink sans alcohol. I enjoyed your article and subscribed to the newsletter. Thanks!

you know, now that I think of it, Drunken Gardeners does explain some of the rather hideous landscaping in the neighborhood...
