A Dandelion Tale, Part Three

You know what happens next in this story, don't you? That's right. We go back to picking dandelions.

Thank goodness we have so many!

Of course Piglet thinks I'm nuts. She watches me bend and collect. I know she's laughing at me!

Finally the paper sack is heavy with flowers.

Nine cups of dandelion petals looks like this:

After they've been washed, I tie the petals in cheesecloth and place the bundle in a sterilized bucket. I add the first ingredients and the winemaking process begins again.

Looks like an ordinary bucket, doesn't it?

But we know better, don't we?

How can you leave us hanging like this? The suspense is killing me!

I would love to taste dandelion wine someday. I am curious now.

You are very determined. I know I would have given up by now. I am impressed!! Can't wait to see how this turns out!

You're inspiring me to try this next year... if it ever finally works, you'll have to send me instructions!

Can't wait to see how this one comes out! Perseverance, for sure!

I love it that you're using a bucket instead of a glass jar.

I can't wait to hear about the nexxt step.
