  • We paid a visit to the @keywestgarden to check out some beautiful Florida Keys flora and fauna. I will never get over how pretty it is here. It just makes me smile. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒต

-
Our tour came complete with a waterfall wall, colorful seed pods, neat old Cuban chugs and absolutely stunning Cuban palms. ๐Ÿ˜
-
-
A great way to spend a day if you're ever in Key West. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  • My husband sure does make pretty food when he is inspired. ๐Ÿ˜
-
-
And it's hard not to be inspired when there is Florida Keys lobster all around. ๐Ÿฆ
-
-
Here we have homemade ceviche with lobster tail, avocado, tomato and mango. Uh, yum. ๐Ÿคค
  • We finally had time to check out the famed home of one of Key West's most celebrated inhabitants. The Ernest Hemingway House is everything you'd expect from the dashingly rugged writer. Not very glamorous or overly ornate - rather charming and very Key West. ๐Ÿซ
-
-
And of course, we mustn't forget the famous six-toed descendents of the original Hemingway cat. Proceeds from the price of admission goes toward the care of these kitties, as well as the upkeep of the house. ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿ’•
  • If you haven't noticed from some of our posts, we love seafood. Well - all food - but seafood holds a special place, as does the sea. ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒŠ

In fact, the notion of living the sailboat life after this RV life is always sitting at the back of our minds - but that is for another time. โ›ต
-
-
For now, we just reap the benefits of having a generous neighbor in the Keys who is kind enough to share his bounty of stone crab claws. ๐Ÿฆ€
-
-
And we've discovered a new favorite condiment in this Floribbean Key Lime Mustard sauce - an absolute must when eating stone crab. Serious yum - lucky for us, they ship. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Good food. Good wine. Great people. ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ’–

Full bellies. Full hearts. Live music, to boot. ๐ŸŽถ

Pineapple banana papaya bundt cake a la Brian for the win. ๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ™Œ

Off to bed. Sweet dreams. ๐Ÿ˜ด
  • Good morning, folks!
-
-
I sure will miss these Florida sunrises and sunsets. ๐ŸŒ… They steal your breath every time.
-

But the chance to see sunrises and sunsets from places all over the country makes my heart flutter just a little. ๐Ÿ’–

I hope everyone has a relaxing Sunday. I will be working, but that's okay - I enjoy my job. ๐Ÿค—

INTRODUCING

A New Brand From The Modern Journeymen

The Modern Journeymen are excited to announce our brand new line of simple, quality products for fermenters, homesteaders, crafters and artisans!


About Wildcraft Culture

In the few years that weโ€™ve been doing what we do, weโ€™ve discovered a culture of creative and self-sufficient people who have a need for uncomplicated, efficient tools.

In our own search, we've had some difficulty finding good quality products that work the way we want them to.

We decided to start designing a range of tools to fill that need, whether it be for fermentation, crafting, or just plan ol' homesteading.

Tools that make creating & crafting easier for the beginner, but are also dependable and durable enough for everyday use to give you more consistent quality through all your batches.

With Wildcraft Culture, each product is tested personally by us for durability and ease of use.

As always, we want to share knowledge and teach those of you who are just getting started and provide expert resources for those who are past the basics.

Therefore, we will regularly post training videos, inspirational content and recipes for all of our products.


We enjoy the variety of ferments we get by doing small batches in mason jars. Instead of the standard crocks and larger vessels, we enjoy making pint, quart, and half gallon batches of our ferments.

But we weren't happy with the tools available and wanted something better.

So, for our first product, we wanted to create a tool that would make fermenting in jars less intimidating and a little more foolproof...

A WIDE MOUTH MASON JAR

FERMENTATION KIT


Fermenting Weights

Easy Grip Handle

Our innovative design comes with a large glass handle for easy placement and removal into wide mouth mason jars.

Smooth Flat Bottom

Ensures even pressure on your ingredients and prevents air bubbles forming below the weight.

Non-porous & Lead Free

Weights are made of lead-free solid glass, making them easy to clean and will not take on any odors or colors, even with everyday use.

Reduces Infections

Helps keep the nasties away (mold, fungus, etc.), by ensuring that your veggies stay beneath the brine in an anaerobic environment.

Silicone Airlocks

Waterless Airlocks

Unlike traditional airlocks, ours require no liquid or pumps to function properly.

Automatically Vents

Prevents oxygen from entering the jar but allows CO2 gas to escape through a small slit.

Food Grade Silicone

Made from food grade silicone, there is no worry about it coming in contact with your ferment.

Low Profile Design

Easily store your ferments in tighter spaces, such as a shelf or in a cabinet.

Guides, Recipes and Support

Just started fermenting? We're here to help. We'll regularly post new recipe ideas and fermenting guides on the site. And feel free to reach out with any specific questions.

Everything is Dishwasher Safe

No time to hand wash? No problem! Our lids and airlocks are made tough. Just toss in the dishwasher with other plates and glassware.

Comes with 4 Different Airlock Colors

Easily identify your ferments with different airlock colors. Included in every set is one of each: Red, Blue, Green & Purple
