    Habaneros

    We've got two small batches dehydrated so far and they're currently in a tight shaker jar. If we continue to get more and the bushes grow any (they seem stunted from this weird weather we had) then I will have to use @Ridgerunner 's suggestion on powdering it and storing in a tight canning jar.

    Habaneros

    I'm hoping to learn some tips from folks here as this is the first time in probably five years I've dehydrated Habanero peppers and would love a better way to store them. The plants just started really putting on peppers so every few days I hope to be picking them and putting some up- the first...

    Discombobulated

    Some thoughts/experiences on what’s been happening: Gas is anywhere from $1.25 to $1.71 around here lately. Wonder if it will drop to under a dollar- last time I saw that was probably 14 years ago passing through North Carolina on a trip. We noticed a huge uptick in my husband’s online sales for...

    Aww goodness @Nifty I do apologize. But in that spirit, I'll leave a flower for our friend sumi. :rainbowflower

    Remembering Sumi

    I think it'd be great to see a smiley for sumi similar to Nyboy's. It's hard to believe it's been this long already.

    We sure could use some NyBoy humor in these trying times...

    I was just thinking about Ny and sumi. Has there been any discussion of a smiley on behalf of sumi, similar to Ny's flower? :rainbowflower :rainbowflower :rainbowflower

    Watermelons

    @AMKuska I'm not sure how they would do for you but I can see if he has any seed - I know a few years back he had deer and surprisingly coyotes tear through a patch. If he does, I'll try and get more and send a few your way if you'd like. I still have to get with him on corn seed anyways.

    Watermelons

    This may be a bit late as I happened to just see the thread- but we're going to suggest the hometown favorite that's now made it into some big seed catalogs. A variety named the Clay County Yellowmeat (alternately Yellow Meat) was developed here in our county and it's DELICIOUS! It's such an...
