First round of greens are in!

Iceberg, romaine and pak choi. The ground outside is still pretty frozen, but I did manage to get some compost sifted and I bought a big bag of organic fertilizer.

My 2015 Helles Lager Recipe

Last year's was more of a Bohemian Pilsener, and won 3rd in War of the Worts, but they aren't far from each other.  The yeast will probably make a lot of difference. Either way, a great start to Spring!
