Where is my Sauerkraut?!

The seedlings went in a bit late, but they grew really well and looked promising.

Then some warm days hit our place. And BAM! the buggers bolted. ARRRGGGHHHH!

Yes, it looks very pretty.

But I wanted to make Sauerkraut from our very own cabbage. *sigh*

This one might do for a small meal. A side dish, maybe.
Ah well, must try again next season. I am not giving up.

Katrine, that's a pretty sadistic streak you have there! *LOL*

Kelly? What happened to Kel? - yes, it is disappointing when that happens.

That's gardening. Not all triumph. Lots of experiments. Some work, some don't. :)

Mickle, they'll have to fight the sheep for it! So all beasts will be happy. :)
