My way..... Cut peeled potatoes into fry shapes, soak in cold salt water for an hour, and drain thoroughly. Deep fry for 3-4 minutes, drain thoroughly and allow to cool completely. Then, fry them again til golden brown. I usually fry them for 2 minutes then drain and freeze them for quick French fries that beat store bought frozen fries. We have two big potato farms that grow potatoes for McD's within an hour drive of me, so after they harvest a field there's lots of potatoes laying on the surface that the machines miss, and anybody is free to go pick them up. So I have access to literally hundreds of pounds of free Burbank russets. I've made a lot of fries.....

Peeling garlic seemed pretty easy when I prepped my first ferment. I was wearing nitrile gloves already so I just rubbed the skins right off.

Important tip, be very careful when opening the door to check on your superhots, it's kinda like getting pepper sprayed.....

If in doubt about you growing conditions, get a thermometer/hydrometer. Approximately 50% humidity, and 75f, with 77g being the peak temp for fastest photosynthesis rate, but not go too much over 80. If you have a non contact infrared thermometer you can check leaf surface temps, which should be lower than the ambient air temperature. If the lead surface temps are higher it's an indication your humidity is too high and the plants aren't respirating, and means they're not taking up nutrients

Looks like edema, which is hard to control in hydro. If you have a non contact infrared thermometer, you can check leaf surface temps, which should be lower than the ambient temp, if they're higher you definitely need more air circulation.

Also, what are you nutrient temps like?
