Summer is coming to an end, and with the transition to fall comes the bountiful harvest. Many folks are canning and dehydrating to deal with all the excess, putting it up in the pantry for winter. Another great way to preserve your food and also reap healthy benefits is fermentation! We have some wonderful Pickle Pipes and Pickle Pebbles by Masontops that are simply placed on top of a mason jar for quick, easy fermentation. Watch our video as we make some tasty sauerkraut using these tools, plus a handy Pickle Packer to stuff our jar!

Mastering the fundamentals helps build great gardens
It’s the time of year for transplanting, and what better way to treat your garden right and ensure success by using mycorrhizal fungi to enhance plant growth by promoting strong, vigorous roots, as well as keeping your soil healthy? Transplanting is the perfect time to use mycorrhizae, as you can sprinkle it in the planting hole making sure it has direct access to the plant’s roots.
