It's been cold, wet and raining for the past while (with snow, in some areas!!), which meant it was the perfect time to stay indoors and finally make sauerkraut. While I remember my mother making sauerkraut when I was a child, and I know I helped at least a little, I have never made it … Continue reading Step-by-step: making sauerkraut
A really amazing colony of mushrooms, on the stump of a crabapple tree that died this year.
