Happy Mud Season from Magick Mountain

Leave a comment

Mud Season: Although the pastures are still mostly covered in snow, every spring day shows larger patches of grass. The mountain streams are flowing briskly with snow melt and our road is a three-mile muddy mess.

Most folks hate mud season up here but after this long snowy winter I am relishing it. I am, always have been OK with getting dirty. Growing up a tomboy some of my favorite playthings were frogs and polliwogs. I use a Fango mud mask regularly and even traveled to Calistoga Springs to take a mud bath. There is something wonderfully primal about the rich loamy smell of the earth.

We are supposed to get dirty! The links between our immune system and dirt cannot be denied. 

This year, trade over-sanitizing Spring Cleaning for a Spring Ritual of Renewal for body, mind and soul. Go for a muddy hike and perhaps introduce yourself to a few ‘healthy bugs’ like Kombucha, or any of the myriad probiotics out there. Nature in all of her glorious messiness is waiting! (Funny anecdote, I actually got stuck in the mud on the ATV today!)

As I am still a moonshiner (l brew kombucha on New and Full moons), I am not able to sell yet in any stores, but please come up to Magick Mountain for brews (with a view)! And/or let me know how many you’d like. As you know, I happily deliver!

Please save your screw top wine bottles for more brews.

Thank you for loving my small batch kombucha – I brew for you!
