Rain, harvesting, foraging, fermenting

Awww the smell of fresh rain. Like our fermentables … a cultural imprint, derived from our ancestors.

We avoid harvesting during or immediately after rainfall.

Foraging or harvesting two days after a rain shower is recommended for fermentables.

The microorganisms have been washed away on the rainy day and haven’t had time to re-establish the following day.

After two fine days they are good for pickin’ and will be full of moisture and the good beasties will be present in heavy concentrations.

🖤and bacteria, Lynnie
