    Perhaps UV was the wrong harmful factor, but I know that LEDs can seriously damage your eyes if you are not using proper protective eye-ware! Have not heard about Fluence....will have to check them out.

    Agreed. Ken clearly has a greater knowledge than I on the topic, but with some 'experimenting' with hydroponics in my youth...*ahem*, I learned that a hydroponic system requires, ideally, reverse osmosis water, a strong aerator and a close monitoring of PH and nutrients levels. I cannot say the idea of some 'preloaded' cartridges appeals to me, quite frankly. I am also curious as to what 13w will produce. I was sent a KIND LED X80 strip light not long ago which I was thinking of creating a setup similar to this, though still determining the growing medium... Also the question of housing came into play. LED lights give off strong UV rays which can be harmful to the eyes. Not sure if it is an issue at 13W, but at 80W they can certainly damage ones eyes and without an enclosure, a lot of the light is being lost - a reflective wall system would be much more efficient.

    For whatever reason I was under the impression this was a hydroponic system. What is the growing medium and how are the plants getting nutrients?

    So this is basically a plastic tub with an aerator and an attached (what appears to be very low wattage) LED?

    Breakfast 2019

    I like the idea of miso and mushrooms. What type/brand of miso do you use, Anna?

    Yes - it has to do with the health of the animal prior to slaughter and the method of slaughter and how they quickly draw the blood from the body.

    Dinner 2019

    Just to clarify, Halal has nothing to do with Kosher food. While originating from similar geographies, Halal refers to what is permissible or lawful in Islamic law, often pertaining to food or drink. Ironically enough, your dinner would certainly not be Kosher (Halal aside), with the mixture of meat and dairy
  8. Ok - thanks. Moved to the cellar!
  9. In the basement itself I would say it is between 20-24 Which environment is more ideal?
  10. I have read not to let it go above 27 degrees in a storage space, but what about too cold? I have a cold cellar that gets to between 5-10 degrees in winter...too cold?
  11. Smart idea. I will try that next time - I was unsure if exposure to any air was a bad thing. I could see water starting to fill the tiny gaps already when I put it downstairs. How long do you typically let it ferment for?
  12. Well...got 2kg of organic green cabbage, sliced thin, measured out 8 tsp of salt and went to packing the heck out of it into a glass jar. I placed a large leaf on top and a plastic bag of brine on top - cloth to cover the opening and an elastic band.
  13. Someone needs to invent a cheap barcoding scanning system that one can simply barcode as they go in, and scan out to update a list. Take my idea, someone - 7% inventors fee is all I ask in return!

    Seasoning Carbon Steel

    Well they are sending me another one... The CS manager said she seasons with multiple applications of salt, potato skins and lots of olive oil - on medium heat. I did mine on high heat - thought you had to blast it.... Wonder if that is where I went wrong.

    Seasoning Carbon Steel

    Same issue here. I emailed them a few times with pics of the second pan not holding its seasoning, just on hold with CS in one last attempt...
