Our Plumeria plants are beginning to bloom and it looks like there will be many more to come! This plant has grown a seed pod. It’s going to be a project that will require a bit of patience. We’ll have to wait a few months for the pod to dry and turn brown then we’ll remove the seeds and plant them. Hopefully we’ll have some Nebraska-born Plumeria plants! I just love all of our little experiments!

The Latin translation for the word ‘ferment’ is ‘to boil’. This jar of dill pickle spears fermented with garlic, dill, lemon and Bay leaves will be in full fermentation-mode for our Saturday class. When I tip the jar it will literally look like it is boiling! It’s amazing to see all the bacteria hard at work creating healthy probiotic-filled foods to help support our gut health! Our Saturday class is filled but we’ll get another one scheduled soon! Happy Fermenting!

Our first cucumber! ‘Jackson Classic’ is a pickling-type cucumber and is perfect for growing in a container! We plant six cucumber plants into two large containers and harvest 60 to 80 cucumbers annually. ‘Jackson Classic’ is the perfect choice for fermented and refrigerator pickles. All of this home-grown goodness harvested from a very small space! Do you want to learn how to make your own fermented and probiotic-filled pickles?
