Toni, The squash and yellow beans were cooking separately for dinner. That's a Blackberry Galette and my wife keeps the recipe in her head. Here is what I was able to pry loose. The galette shown didn't have any peaches and used all blackberries instead. Some more galette recipies here.And where is the recipe? I’d like to give it a try, but I don’t even know it’s name. It’s got pecan nuts, lemon, zuchinni, as far as I can see…
I planted a row of the Taylor dwarf beans that you liked and they are up and going crazy. I thought they were a bush type but they are wanting to climb. Won't be long.Weather there's a bit ahead of here. I saw the very first zucchini poking it's little head out of the plant a couple days ago so that's going to be "on" real soon now. The bush beans are trying to flower a little, no beans yet, and the pole beans are just barely up. We have gotten a few batches of fava beans both green and shelled though! Cucumbers are "up" but quite a ways from fruiting. We are awash in lettuce still.
I'd stop by any day of the week for a pecan pie, I'm personally fond of the slightly less sweet custard style over the syrup style but will take either with sufficient quantities of pecans
Oops. Now I don't know where the suggestion came from. Supposedly they are a good dry bean type. Thought it was worth a try to keep some stashed away under vacuum just in case....I don't think I was the one who mentioned the Taylor dwarfs (checking seed lists I don't see it which either means we didn't grow it or didn't keep track of it, either is certainly possible)... but it does look like a really nice multi-use bean! Love some of the heirloom varieties.
I think you just solved my gardening problem for this year. Something ate all the smaller plants we put out. Still have some tomatoes we haven't put in the ground yet. I've got some grow bags though so will probably use those so that I can put them up higher, or move around to keep safe.Ten gallon grow bags similar to these have been working out great for the plants that wouldn't fit in my raised beds. They are durable enough for several seasons and have carry ahndles for mobility. Have also gotten good result from corregated galvanized fire rings found at yard sales.
I still have a couple of raided beds on the west end of the house... I have a really nice crop of weeds in both.... there's asparagus in the end of one, but I've let it bolt and now it's mostly asparagus ferns.I uilt a nice raised bed on the sunny side of my yard last year and it was very productive. In that bed I mixed in about 50% - 70% organic matter. I also planted some seed worms.
Yup, as long as it's grain/corn fed. I've been fortunate to have dined on elk, mule deer and pronghorn antelope that spent a lot of time in farmers fields and they were excellent, but we're not in Montana any more Toto. . Up in Alaska, had a share of a big ol bull moose harvested during the rut that no amount of marinating/tenderizing could make palatable. Kids were raised on caribou sausage/hot dogs and they loved them. When they tasted real hot dogs for the first time they wouldn't eat them, said they were horrible.Ted with your organic vegetables I'll add the organic turkey. What could be better .....deer ?
