drank Champagne Rosé by Lupicia
1201 tasting notes

omg has it really been since last June that I tried this one?!? I know I’ve had it since then…because I know for a fact I love it.

I bought myself a celebratory growler of Woodchuck’s summer cider (which to me is tasting like iced tea right now) but I needed to get in at least one cup of tea today, so I figured the celebratory theme could continue, and what’s better than champagne?

I didn’t realize this was more of a strawberry champagne than really resembling rosé grape taste but that’s ok. Well, I guess in the past I realized it, but today it just seemed more strawberry.

I hope next year at some point I have the free use of funds to make a Lupicia order. I would prefer to have far less tea at that time because I’m pretty sure I want to spend $100 if not more there. Haha.

Oh I forgot I have no idea if I mentioned my garden at all. I kind of killed the seedlings by transplanting them so I had to buy some bigger plants, which is okay. Less work. https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/431858_4888351455633_364197505_n.jpg I have cherry tomatoes and an heirloom tomato in front there. Then there are 3 seedlings that are either cucumber or squash, I honestly have no clue. Behind them, I planted habanero seeds so I hope they work and a strawberry plant. Then moss roses, followed by the empty space where broccoli is planted. Then there’s 3 more pepper plants: purple bell, red bell, and jalapeno, and at the very back is a watermelon plant! It’s an icebox style so once it starts growing more I’m going to tie it to a trellis to grow vertically.

Ok I think I have come to the conclusion it’s cucumber, because the seeds are smaller, and what I assume to be squash has way bigger leaves. I have no idea if that’s right but I’m going to eventually move one of those over so both will be there anyway haha

Your peppers are looking great!

Novi

Is that a community plot, ore are all of those beds yours? Because I might have to be stunningly jealous of you.

momo

It’s a community garden! Just the one for me, haha. When I was there picking it, I think I heard someone say they split one with a neighbor. I was just like HOW I want more than just this one myself!

Novi

I agree with that! Because at this point, I have (for my family) 13 tomato plants set for my backyard. It makes me sad that I had to stop at 13 in order to have room for my other plants!

momo

13!!! Wow I am jealous of the space you must have! I was giving someone advice on what to plant on a big patio they had and they didn’t want to fill it up with plants. I was like HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT THAT.

I can’t wait to have the bell peppers. I hate how much they cost and they should do really well here.

I love cider too! Been drinking Angry Orchard with elderflower limited edition.

momo

Ooh that sounds good! The summer cider has a bit of blueberry and I am loving it. Have you ever had one of Crispin’s with maple syrup in it? It is so awesome. Last time I got a bottle I got a free glass of theirs and it is the prettiest glass I own, I can’t even bring myself to use it.

Chelle

I have had a few Crispin but not maple syrup. You add the syrup or do the offer one with maple? Sounds yummy.

momo

It’s made with maple syrup. I forget what name they gave it, but it has a red label.

Oooh watermelon! I love gardening! I never have to buy veggies in the warmer months because both my parents and my in laws have large gardens. I wish I had my own plot of land to tend to though.
Are you going to throw in any herbs there? It’s a little crazy how much a handful of basil can cost.

Nicole

That is a garden setup of which I am mighty envious. My yard doesn’t get enough sun for me to be able to do any kind of garden. I really want to do raised beds and I really, really want fresh herbs. All the shade is awesome to be in the yard with but I wish there were a few sunny spots. :)

Mercuryhime

Nicole, have you tried any of the plants listed here?

If anything, mint seems to thrive anywhere so maybe give that a try to start with. :)

momo

Also some things can grow with as little as 3 hours of sun a day. And if you can’t even provide that, you may still get them to grow, they’ll just be a bit smaller.

I like gardening in video games (Harvest Moon FTW!) but I kill everything in real life. Good luck with your garden!!
