Any wine makers out there?

Fruitcake, my friends laugh, but I have made little 'jackets' for the red wines in their demi-johns out of black-out curtain lining so that the sun doesn't bleach the wine, which apparently affects the flavour.

Mrs T 12, as another artist, I'm afraid I agree with Dove; that chap in the distance gives the walk some sense of the scale of it.

Little Ann, love that veg garden

Nut, the Gooseberry didn't go mad, so that is a bit worrying, but I made it in early July I think. But it never bubbled much. I won't bottle it yet in case there is that 2nd fermentation. I've racked it once from the big demi-john into 1 gallon ones, to make room for the Pear in the big demi-john.

It is the Pear that is worrying me; all those bubbles coming out of the airlock and liquid pooling on the gravel tray beneath.
