Since Nancy asked what a sauerkraut clay pot or crock was, I went out to take a photo of the second one I have. I only just planted this one up last weekend so you are able to see the pot really well. These crocks were found in farms in olden days and are (still) used to ferment cabbage to make sauerkraut. These two I have used to be used by my husband's grandmother on her farm. That farm still stands here in this neighborhood. Our new neighborhood used to be polderland where cows grazed.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
