Not necessarily! I’m getting old, and it looks dire for a lot of other species in the near future, but my friends, the good old bacteria, will go on thriving forever it seems. 

Todays sauerkraut.


One jar has home grown chili mixed in. 

There is lots to harvest, eat, pickle and freeze now. Here’s the pickling we did the other day.

I had to buy more jars for the cucumbers – all the old ones are already in use – and there are still a bunch of cukes waiting.

I had to buy organic carrots for the carrot pickles because mine are still too small. There is a recipe for pickling carrots in the blog I published on the 9th of January, earlier this year.

I still haven’t found the time to make a menu page on lactobacillus pickling. I’m waiting for a rainy day.

We have been parboiling beans for freezing these last few days too.

Green beans, wax beans and flat beans.

After a week at the stone pounding course, I spent most of yesterday watering. It then rained 2 mm last night – just enough to aggravate the leaves. Nevertheless, the cucumbers have been growing and had accumulated.

Time for pickling! And here’s todays result.

There were a couple of variations this time. There were two white cucumbers. Odd. And one batch was made with cucumber slices, garlic, herbs and a chili peppar.

As usual I use the lactobacillus pickling method. There is a recipe in one of my blogs from about a year ago, but I will soon fix it as a page for easy access under the menu.
