"My grill is bigger than yours" says @Sue_CT! I love this place! LOL

I haven't even had time to unbox this thing, or so it seems.

Hey @Rockoe10, what made you pick it at 50% ripe? Was it going bad?

Re: Sous Vide Cooking.

That's all looking good. One of the things I read over the last few years is doing osso buco using sous vide. I've never had it, veal, venison, traditional or sous vide. So I have a number of shanks from yesterday (3 tags filled so far in two days hunting) and might try that for the first sous vide ...

Re: Spotted Lanternfly

Yes, they certainly are. Was this the first year you've seen them, though? A few of us from PA have posted about them over the last few years but I can't remember if you had. That's what I wondering. They made it down to coateville in force this year, and destroyed a tree of a neighbor of a friend o...

Re: Whatcha Cooking today?

First deer of the year on Saturday. Button buck shoulder roast tonight, french onion soup and mustard, wrapped in foil and oven roasted. Some pathetic looking but tasty garden carrots thrown in. That onion soup and mustard is the standard roast I grew up with. This was so good I ate one whole should...

Re: Spotted Lanternfly

When did you first see them brownrexx ? They snuck in right around here where I live, but there are not nearly as many as there were in 2016-17. Been a while since I've seen a mob like that around here. Our swamp maple was covered up like that a couple years in a row but not the last two. But I see ...

Re: create a soup, time of plenty

Absolutely not. Good place to grow tomatoes and okra though. I may start shopping for vehicles down south. What is a good state that trucks are taken care of and don't rust out? Got it fixed, but...such a long day. And depressing to look at all that rust for hours. The good news is when I left this ...

Re: create a soup, time of plenty

That sausage turned out great but I see what I did wrong. Found my good instructions. I should have added water to the cast iron skillet I was using to brown the meat. Then stir it to make a flourless gravy to fill the jars. And I should have held off on the 1/2tsp of beef bullion, since it already ...

Re: Doubt about tomato production

@Nico One thing to try next year...since you have a nice long season, take advantage of the greenhouse again and start half of your plants early like this year. Time the other half of your planned crop like previous years so you have continued production up until cold weather.

Re: Your Biggest Tomato of 2020

HL2601 hey what is the tomato in your avatar pic that is colored kinda like a nectarine? I don't think I've ever seen a tomato that color before. I took down most of my tomatoes in the past week. Definitely no more big ones this year for me. I'd say it usually the first or second truss for me that ...

Re: Seed garlic in short supply - order now if you want it this year

Four cloves per bulb...that is stingy. I can see bulbils being more attractive then, especially for multiplying the crop in a few seasons. Are the bulbils allotted the same area in the garden?

Re: Random and miscellaneous garden photos

I figured probably fritillary from the pic posted above, I think it said Gulf fritillary, looked similar. I see a lot flying around here that could well be meadow or silver lined, but never noticed a caterpillar. Webpage says they eat violet! I'll second that. Something to look for next year.

Boom, found it still hosted online. I found it by web searching a quote from my printout, "It's an easy way to turn your excess tomato harvest into a tasty". Actually, a copy of the recipe is in page 2 of that thread above. But no pics. My printouts have pics. Suze's Oven Roasted Tomato Sauce https:...

Geez um my typing is getting hard to read....where are the grammar police when you need them? Maybe it is this gray forum color. I don't seem to see my typing errors before posting here.

Re: Sous Vide Cooking.

That's what I'm thinking for ring bologna too. Finishing like this would not melt the vermont sharp. I use 152 I think, as finished. I could set the smoker for 160 or so and finish it off with good control in a water batch. It will be nice to get a good system going for this, smoker to water bath. D...
