Friday - Elderberry Goodness

Friday night we got there and got settled at the home of our hosts/instructors June and David.  They are really amazing people and I'm so excited to soak up their shared knowledge. 

Our group, about 12 of us including our kiddos, sat in the living room cleaning elderberries from stems (over 15 lbs) while enjoying a few glasses of elderberry wine (juice for the younger set). The group of mainly 20-somethings made me feel ancient, but having a common goal in modern-day homesteading and DIY activities bridges the age gap just fine.

Aside from a restless night with little ones in foreign surroundings, we fell asleep late and awoke on Saturday ready for our next adventure.
