Sauerkraut crocks in the garden

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!

The sauerkraut crock is beautiful Heidi, and it's the perfect thing for plantings. I love sauerkraut too!

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for showing this,

I love the sauerkraut crock (I love sauerkraut)! the rose in the post below looks very good in one too! Isn't it good to be eating outside, although it is a bit miserable here this weekend. Enjoy yours
