I know what cedar shingles look like but I can't picture the plastic ones

They're easy to germinate Fishy, sow now, leave outside. But although I love them and keep trying more it's really too dry for them in my garden

It won't look like spam Steve.

We know you as a forum member not a spammer

There were cedar shingles on our house roof when we moved in. Been there 30 years and leaking like a sieve. But they looked very thin and I've seen chunkier ones than that on other buildings. 

I think they'd age for gracefully than plastic.

Yes, sounds right. People have become bit obsessed with sterilizing and fridges but pickling  preserved things for years before fridges were invented.

Hi hollie.

You need to add the vinegar cold but boil the spices in it first, unless it's spiced vinegar.

I have never put a pickled anything in the fridge,

Don't add garlic. The taste is good but it makes them sticky and the eggs break up when you try and get them out of the jar. It might not if you boil the garlic, I chopped it and added it raw
