Todays harvest

The summer cabbages have filled out and will start spliting soon, so it is time to take them in and turn them into sauerkraut. I prefer to use the autumn cabbages for sauerkraut so that I can make it in the fall when things slow down in the garden, but they got quite a bit of curl virus and I had to replant most of them. They may not get big enough in time.

When the greens of the onions fall over and lay down, it’s time to harvest them. I put them spread out in flats under a roof in the wind and sun to dry out. Later they will go down stairs to the food room for the winter. They usually last about ten months there.
