in the garden

i have been spending plenty of time out in the garden over the past week.

planting, mulching, feeding, harvesting and more planting. not to mention the never ending weeding.

i am finding there is so much to do before the warm weather sets in. i know its only august, technically still winter, but in this part of the world spring can come around too soon (for me anyway) and it can be extremely warm.

i picked these beautiful beets and carrots a few days ago and made them into lacto fermented beets and lacto fermented ginger carrots.

not sure how they taste just yet, the beetroot will be ready tomorrow and the carrots the day after. i can't wait to try them.

we're not picking too much else other than greens such as spinach, kale, plenty of parsley and small amounts of dandelion and coriander. oh and the odd radish which i have discovered is lovely spread with butter and a sprinkling of salt.

i have many plans for the spring and summer garden although i am wondering where i am going to put everything and how i will keep up with the watering.

  1. I keep trying to like gingered carrots but honestly I prefer them cultured with something kinda hot like onions or peppers. The kids love them though. And I love cultured beets so much. Hope yours turn out great!
