Ours is done and we've eaten a good portion of it.

We like it a lot better than canned that has been through the high temperature canning process.Ours is quite crunchy, almost as much as it is raw. We'll be making more before we finish off this first gallon

Yellow Italian beans are in the quart jar. We've still got 40 quarts between yellow and green Italian.

No flash photography for more accurate color.

 

 


Two kinds of Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, two kind of collards, two kinds of tomatoes and three kinds of peppers. I move them from under the lights to out on the sunny back porch when temperatures allow and bring peppers and tomatoes in at night. All others are being 'hardened off' by low night temperatures preparing for permanent outdoor planting.

 

 
Stay curious!

10 days later. Liquid volume has increased. Flavor is not as tangy as I expected.

432 cells of seedlings started on 2-24-24. Some are just popping up and peppers are in our chicken egg incubator heated to 88°F. The incubator holds 48 cells and greatly reduces pepper germination time. 

 

 

 

Fig cuttings of our own and some purchased varieties.

This is our first of many to come gallons of homemade sour kraut.  (2TBS per day)

Rotting cabbage in a jar.

Should be ready for consumption in 4 days and keeps good refrigerated for ten days or so. 

Canning and freezing kills the microbes we seek.

I think a knife and gravity will do the trick.

Is that Lions Mane just by coincidence Dan? They are great to eat. All edible mushrooms are.

Isn’t that type of tree climbing cheating Dan. Don’t you love getting older and smarter.


Yes that is Lion's Mane. It is very tasty and we've been enjoying it. I started some in totems like our shiitake but our Lion's Mane didn't do very well. 

My two stroke powered ascender is called 'The Wraptor'. a play on words. I've had it for about 13 years now. 

Want to go for a ride?

You are on your own as to how to get down, it only goes up.

I've been in trees with bees.
