はい、美味しかったです。次、はくさいずけを作ってみました。でも、一週間までカビに植えられました  :(   それから、捨てなければならなかったです。塩は足りなかったと思います。

Yep, it was delicious. Next, I tried to make "salted Chinese cabbage" pickles. But after a week, it had mold growing on it :( So I had to throw it out. I think maybe I didn't use enough salt.

By the way, is "植える" the correct verb to use to describe mold growing on something? When I said "カビに植えられました" I was trying to use the troubled passive construction - did I get this right? ありがとう!

Becci san,

えー、カビですか。それは残念でしたね。 :cry:

一週間後にカビが生えました is correct.

今度はもっと塩を入れてください。 :D
