But, not to be deterred, at this house I have an old crock. It's an antique one and rather than make sauerkraut in it, I have it on the patio with two water plants and three goldfish. Today I have to empty it, store the plants in a safe place, and put the goldfish in a big bowl for winter. I do this to prevent the crock freezing and breaking over winter. The fish would be fine in our milder winters, and just go to the bottom whee there is still water rather than ice. But the crock won't survive so I have to clean it out and bring it inside.
So, with fish on my mind, I've added a "Feed the Fish" gadget to play with in the side column. I found it to be fun when I tried it out so there it is for you to try as well.
