I’ve had trouble with green beans this year. Even though I waited until the weather improved before planting, I had to replant both my pole beans and my bush beans. Birds might have been a factor, but germination seemed to be a problem as well. I guess the soil wasn’t warm enough after all. I’m now getting my first beans and look forward to having fresh beans over the next few weeks.
What did you harvest this week? Post to Daphne’s Dandelions Harvest Monday.
Now on to my new venture! Now that I feel quite confident with my canning skills, I’m going to learn all about fermentation. I bought the Real Food Fermentation book and have started reading it cover to cover. Hopefully I’ll do better than the last time I tried to make fermented pickles. I already think I know what I did wrong. Let’s start with the need to create an air-tight environment, which I most certainly did not do last time. To remedy this, I’ve bought a fermentation crock. I’m also trying the Pickl-It system. I’ll keep everyone updated on my fermentation learning and will gladly welcome tips and recipes.
