Re: greasy beans

I'd like to try some but I'm afraid it's too hot here. You won't even find them down here but I've seen a few at some of the feed and seeds in North Georgia and then up in the Blue Ridge. Cade's Cove. That's not far from Cherokee, NC. Just yesterday on my way to looking up something else, I stumbled...

Stink Bug Information/ID

Today while picking pole beans I spied a recent hatching of something. I ran to get the duct tape, made a circle of it sticky side out and used that to blot up most of the little buggers. Stink bug babies. It's that time of year. So I pulled up my stink bug sites to see which one they are and they'r...

It's Finally Ready!

I've been waiting ever since the last of last year's was gone. The Silver Queen corn is ready. WOO HOOOOO! I've been watching the silks darken and feeling pointy tips on the ears but today a few felt more rounded so I pulled an ear to check. Yep! Ready! So I picked three more for eating this evening...

Re: Friend or Foe

I'm guessing the one I saw was about an inch and a quarter long. Now, that was nose to tip of folded wings but the body was probably an inch long. Definitely a loud buzz. It sat real still for about five minutes and let me get my camera close without moving a bit. Edited to correct "tip pf tail" to ...

Re: Growing Rhubarb In The South?

Thanks, Worth. I've added that to the other three articles in my Rhubarb file. Some overlap, some different ideas. One can never have too much information!

Re: Friend or Foe

roper2008 , I saw my first one of those just several days ago and had to look it up. Seemed like a bumblebee on steroids. It buzzed so loudly that I turned to look at it. It landed on a wooden stake and stayed there quite a while as I took pics. Turns out it's a Robber Fly. The description said the...

Re: Taste, Flavor, Savor, Piquancy and aftertaste...

There are probably specific biochemicals that are responsible for various tomato flavors. It would be handy if those could be identified and quantified. How those flavors are perceived by individuals will vary though. Even the levels of chemicals would vary in the same variety due to the vagaries of...

Re: Baked Eggplant Casserole A La Morrison's Cafeteria.

@PlainJane, I made a half recipe for just us. The Ritz in the box I have are packed in these mini tubes with 13 crackers per tube. 13? I wonder why 13. Whatever! I used two tubes or 26 crackers for half of a recipe. Just an FYI.

Re: Broke ground today

It's looking really good despite the losses you had.

You know, I haven't seen many of the cabbage worm butterflies this year and only had to put out bT once.

***whispering so the squash bugs, vine borers and leaf-footeds don't hear*** There seems to be a lot less insect pressure this year.

I guess today's bean picking will be postponed until tomorrow! Meanwhile, it’s rainy day indoor activities. The parsley on the porch went to se...

Re: The Dawg Patch

The vegetables look good. That is the most tomatoes I have ever seen on one plant. Outstanding. Did you smoke the Boston Butt on a Big Green Egg smoker? No, I just used one of those barrel grills that has the small side barrel. I don't use the side barrel much and usually put the coals at the botto...

‘Chinese Buffet’ Green Beans

We used the yard long beans for this as they cook faster and have a slightly different flavor than regular green beans. They were fantastic with tiny bits of char on them from the wok! A very quick and easy recipe. ‘Chinese Buffet’ Green Beans 1 TBS peanut oil 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 lb fre...

Re: Taste, Flavor, Savor, Piquancy and aftertaste...

Nan6b , I had my first Brad's Atomic Grape the other day and it is definitely different in flavor than any other tomato I've ever had. I think you might be right about black tomatoes having a different flavor. BAG isn't all black but close enough and it sure tastes different. Hard to describe but t...

Re: The Dawg Patch

Yesterday the Blue Lake beans got their last picking and were pulled out. It was a good decision as there were very few baby beans and no more flowers. Today the cuke plants got pulled and yes, it was confirmed that the yellowing was due to nematodes. The roots were all knotted up. Nothing was plann...

Re: Growing Rhubarb In The South?

Whwoz , it could be the humidity. The articles I read never mentioned humidity but then they really didn't mention heat in specifics but growing zones. I'm in Zone 8. Farther south in 9 & 10 it's definitely "grow as an annual". You're a lot more dry that we are. Last month we were sitting at upper ...
