Attended a Fermentation workshop at Teros last evening, which I have to say was excellent. I’ve made sauerkraut before, but with whole cabbages mostly and that’s been fine. However, I’d had only limited success (at best) with shredded cabbage version. Now I know why, so shouldn’t have any issues for the future.
Sitting on the bench here now I have Sauerkraut, Kimchi and Kombucha – these you get to bring home from the workshop.
Tom watched on while the chooks and ducks were fed, not too impressed as Poppy had managed to get through the gate and he considers this to be his territory. Tom looks after the chickens, never attempts to kill a baby chick, ever. I think that’s astounding given the fact that he was once feral.
Poppy and Truffles have their morning romp as usual. It looks like Truffles is getting the worst of it, but they play like this by the hour – Truffles actually seeks her out. It’s Poppy every time who ends up yelping from a strategically placed claw.
