Re: Remembering Days Gone By.....

I preferred the taste of the little langostino lobsters to the big ones. (Yeah, I know they aren't truly lobsters but that seems to be what they call them on menus.) However, these days either one would have me in the ER in 15 minutes 😢

Re: Total loss

The more I ponder this, the madder I get. If it were me, I would be installing a solar charger and electric fence, rules or no rules. You can get signs that warn and if they ignore, that's on them.

Re: CELERY with brown flesh

It seems like 3 out of every 4 stalks I've bought at the store have the same problem. They look fine until I start to cut them up. I wonder if it is a weather-related issue? I do still use any that aren't too bad for cooking but not for eating raw. And I love celery stuffed with either peanut butter...

Re: Total loss

I feel terrible for you and your fellow gardeners. There truly is NO excuse for thievery. I would recommend a few well-hidden trail cams, if you can get some of the other folks to go in on them. They wouldn't keep anybody out but you might be able to identify the thugs for prosecution. On that scale...

Re: How to mask the flavor of cloves

@worth1 I remember the days when cough syrup with codeine was sold over-the-counter. All these fancy new ones they have now and not a one of them worth buying 😒

Re: How to mask the flavor of cloves

I hear cloves are good for toothache. Never tried it, though.

I don't remember stores having them when I was a small child but there was a restaurant that my parents would take me to now & then that had one. I was fascinated!

"Elbonian Mudball" 😂 I loved the Elbonian segments on Dilbert. Might have to grow those once just for the giggles!

Re: Wild tomato

Oh that's too bad. We have a "volunteer" plant that came up in the middle of my zinnia bed. It's HUGE and covered in pinky-yellow cherry tomatoes - that taste like rot. Icky. From now on I will pull any vines I did not specifically plant.

Re: Wild tomato

Wow - have you tasted any? If they are relatively good, I'd be saving seeds; that is a tough survivor plant and that can be a good trait to pass along.

Re: Do your tomatoes smile at you?

@LK2020 Those are either Dixie Golden Giant or Big Rainbow without the red splotches (how does that happen when those were planted from commercial seed packets?!) They look to me to be slightly darker gold than the pale yellow of DGG.

Re: Do your tomatoes smile at you?

@LK2020 Yes all the pink ones are EML's. The biggest 2 should be fully ripe so I can get seeds to save tomorrow, Sunday at the latest.

Re: Salt and pepper tomatoes

Gotta have salt on tomatoes. No pepper, though. I always make my own mayo, too. The whole reason to have burgers or sandwiches this time of year is to have an extra excuse to eat tomatoes and mayo!

Re: Tomato Processing/Canning Advice Needed

So are we. The best part of freezing as opposed to canning is we don't have to wait until there's a big batch ripe. If I get a few that need something done with them immediately I can easily toss them in a bag and into the freezer.

Re: Magda!

Tormato If I had known the *#%$! Squash Bugs were going to attack just after I pulled the couple I got in mid-July, I sure as heck would have pulled seeds out before I cut them up and froze them. 😞 I hope you get the seeds you're looking for. This was the last of my packet from a couple of years ag...
