Any favorite HOPE FM stories to share?

When Phil was giving samples of my fermented hot pepper escabeche out, watching people’s reactions to how hot was, was not nearly as much fun as watching Phil’s reaction.

Ty also has a wealth of knowledge on beer brewing and heirloom garlic varieties. Check back in a few months and he will have 6 types of garlic to choose from!
