Second Ferment Kombucha

Fermented tea

In yesterday's post about the benefits of ferments in your diet, a question from MargaretP, asked how I got so many bubbles in my kombucha. It hasn't always been the case. When I first started making kombucha tea, I also experienced the disappointment of waiting for the second ferment, only to have LESS bubbles, than the first time it fermented in my jar.

Eat what now?

Joey says: "Australia, eat your greens!"

Thanks to those who engaged the comments, of my last post. It's incredibly valuable to read how others translate their situations, during this unprecedented time. I was going to discuss why the Medical industry, has a hard time providing answers (beyond, a cure). But was heartened to see some further advice being dispensed recently.

Lessons from disease

Constructive mess

I've been on hiatus with some construction projects. They always seem to take longer than I imagine. I haven't been oblivious to what's happening in the world right now though. Because it's impacted us in some significant ways. The kids are now at home, for the foreseeable future. Not because I believe in the social distancing strategy - I'll share my thoughts about why, soon. Rather, it conserves our resources to use this opportunity to keep them home. Serving the same goal I guess.
