Sounds like you guys are more Southern US?
Up here in Massholesetts if someone walked into a store open carry, you'd get a minimum 2 fainters, 3 screamers, and the SWAT descended before you could put your hands up.
EVEN THOUGH technically we are not a prohibited open carry state.
So I've got a financial strain, lack of enough canning jars for my unexpected early harvests, and the local brew store closed.
How can I really low tech continue with wine?
Should I give up on wine for the time being and can everything to save the startup costs?
Ok, definitely something in a jar for later, have lots of jelly jars awaiting!
Anyone make juice before? Would my vintage apple press work for that? Seems too easy to be true...what about juice canning? Is grape acidic enough for a water bath?
We have a beer and winemaking supple store nearby...
Ok, ok, big deep breath.
Pretty sure we got concords.
They are delicious!
I actually filled a huge tote and barely did 1/4 of the arbor. Returning tomorrow for the rest.
Maybe 600sqft? Good goddesses what a gift.
So, I definitely can't get all into wine.
Need some ideas for other uses!
I definitely don't have some things I need...
Unless home beer brewing uses the same kinds of tops/vent things for the carboys?
Looks like a good week until I'd need the supplies other than bucket and tshirt...
But a bag. What can I use if I don't have a fermentation bag?
I did use the above recipe, except for the seasonings.

I'll let you know how they turn out. All jars are curing.
I'm going today to pick free "wine grapes."
The picture is a darker color grape, but I know nothing otherwise.
I do not know how much there is yet.
What can I do with these free fruits and how?
Quick Google search, wine looks easy but requires a LOT of trade tools I do not have.
Is there a...
Are you in a big agricultural area, @Mini Horses ?
Im wondering how much location changes things.
I know I have some older riding gear that needs to go. Worried about turning my set up into a tag sale though.
I think I need to find out about bringing live animals.
The TSC market happens about four times a year, I believe.
I've never been to one, I've just always eyeballed the fliers.
I know I'm not ready for a weekly thing, that our bigger cities have. Some day I hope to be!
Right, I intend to keep my fluffy butts at home. I am uncertain if it would even be legal to take my for sale birds with me, so I'll simply advertise the availability.
Currently my egg production is too low to sell outside the friend circle. Hopefully that will be remedied for next spring. If I...
A local Tractor Supply has their market day coming up.
Thinking about jumping in!
I know that I can use it as advertisement. We're new, establishing, and don't have a farm stand up yet. I want connections!
Make a bunch of feed sack bags.
Have some canned pickles I can jazz up...
