Remember how I told you I was making a ginger bug because we wanted to find a way to make some natural “soda” for a summer treat?
The bug worked.
It was fizzy.
For a little while, at least.
But then my first attempt at soda was (mango) …
I think the only way to describe it is …
So then I tried again.
But not as gross as the mango.
And then we went away for a week and I didn’t feed the ginger bug and didn’t ask our house-sitter to feed the ginger bug.
So it died.
And then today I saw this on Holistic Squid …
Dang Holistic Squid (I love her … and she doesn’t know I exist!) …
And we’re going strawberry picking on Saturday at Rocky Creek Farm (which we’ve done for a few years now and it’s so much fun to watch the kiddos scampering through fields of strawberries scavenging for fruit, learning to love the land, and appreciate the gift of nature.
But I’m back to square one …
… hoping I can get this bug going again before the strawberries arrive!
Wish me luck!
