Re: artichoke

I'd be grateful to know how you get on with the artichoke plugs. I purchased 6 at the end of November so, 3 are now dead and the other 3 are on their way to joining them. I've had them in pots in the conservatory as it's been very mild here, they seemed to take very well and were looking healthy. I ...

Re: Swedish fermented Vegetables info needed

Re: Swedish fermented Vegetables info needed

Haven't added water but I've a smaller jar with a weight on it that fits inside the rim of the larger jar to push everything down. There is now liquid covering everything. The site didn't specify when to put a lid on it though... I'm guessing that when the veg no longer needs a weight to keep it sub...

Re: New start at allotment

I was amazed that we got one so quick after going on the list in the spring. There were 8 plots on our site up for grabs this year. It looks like a lot of people give up after the first year. Great for us as we inherited a plot with a load of concrete blocks on it, which I've used to terrace the top...

Re: Swedish fermented Vegetables info needed

Re: Swedish fermented Vegetables info needed

Please tell me more... Can you educate me regarding salinity % ? Quite often my local farmshop gives me the stuff that no one else will buy...I easily run out of freezer space so another method of preserving would be great. Pickling in vinegar isn't an option as I don't do malt vinegar due to any gl...
