[gardeners] In the garden

Just put up 15 pints of carrots after cleaning up one little portion of the
garden. Put up about 1.5 lbs in the fridge to eat raw and pressure cooked
the rest except for a good bit that went into a slaw. New batch of carrot
seed goes in the ground tomorrow.

A question. I have a 3-gallon crock full of kraut sauering or whatever the
word is, has been on eight days today. Gonna make a batch of Thai spring
rolls tomorrow and freeze them. Make handy snacks when we come in after a
long day. What in the world else am I gonna do with the other 9 or 10 heads
of Savoy cabbage that are out there grinning at me? Anybody got any ideas
on how to preserve cabbage other than sauerkraut, spring rolls, or
freezing. Froze some last year and it was nasty when thawed, went straight
to the compost. Would like to keep some of it to eat later but can always
give it to the food bank if necessary.

He'p, he'p.

George, feeling a "good" tired after most of the day messing around in the
garden and the yard.
