What did I do for Dave for Father's Day?
Some liquor stores have the Make Your Own Six Pack, so I made four of them from breweries found all over the state. So far, he's enjoyed all but one and I can't remember which one that was... it was in a can, a reddish can, and it was some sort of ale. I think it's fair to say that so far, you really can't go wrong with Colorado brewed beer. Dave enjoys the red ales, pilsners, wheat beers, things of that nature while I like the stouts, IPAs, and porters. I figure I get to have my Guinness when our wee one gets here, and since it was Father's Day why not make it a bouquet of what he wants, right?
Huge success! A gift that is continuing to give. I'll post when he gets to some of the funky ones... I'm sure I threw a rye beer in there somewhere.
On a side note, recently we purchased more Colorado grown booze, including the following gin.

I wanted to get in the gardens as soon as May hit, but I was darn lucky I didn't. We got snow! In May! So the weekend of May 14th, despite being wet and cold outside, was the chosen weekend instead:
Farthest is seed zucchini, then jalapenos, then heirloom tomatoes, then strawberries. Both gardens. One of the pepper plants is a normal green bell pepper, but we wanted to try the jalapenos again.
