Or timchi, or kimchi sauerkraut style,

Pounded savoy cabbage,

Mixed with all the other kimchi ingredients,

And put away to ferment for a month.

First time for me this year.

Spring kicked in the other day. I couldn’t help myself and started gardening.

I sowed a tray of early greens – mizuna and mibuna.

Found an abandoned tractor tire ring

To dig in.

For a raspberry bush.

I’ve also started my spring trimming and pruning along with the regular late winter/early-spring stuff like making miso, sauerkraut and marmelade.

And I’m also planning for a trip to the saturday farmers market in Uppsala this weekend.

Rice miso with herbs typical of southern france (grown in my own garden of course).

This miso tends to expand alot while fermenting for 2 years, so I left a larger empty space at the top.

The sauerkraut from our own cabbages is running out, so we buy some eco cabbage and make some more.

The cabbages are from eco farmer Ove Andersson who has good storage facilities. They are hard as rocks so 6 will be enough for today.

Some with cumin seed and some not. It should last until summer, maybe until we harvest our own summer cabbage.

A glorious winter morning!

I always need more cages to protect my plants and bushes from the ever present animals.

All shapes and sizes

Great for skiing!

We’ve already been out skiing once, which is more than what I have done the last two years. And it’s a good thing I’m done with the digging for this season.

Finally a little snow and cold.

And I can get the fall digging done.

Hopefully we get more snow so I can start the ski season.
