    New use for pot liquor

    I just use the peas cause they float so it is easier for them to be interested and chase them.

    New use for pot liquor

    If I am every truely worried about them not getting enough to drink I will take a bowl of cool water and throw a handful of fresh or frozen - never canned) peas in it and take it to the coop. They can't help but chase the peas and usually drink most of the water while they are at it.

    Not a garden topic, but wanted to share my energy $$$

    A lot dont realize that if you dont flush out your hot water heater it actually takes more effort to run it. It covers parts of your elements at times or insulates your gas heat from the water as well as taking away from the volume of your heater, not to mention rots out the bottom. You can...

    I saw something somewhere that was charring them before using in a sauce but I can't find where that was. Also is there enough acid in them to not have to deal with pressure canning them? I am going to have to go look and see what BlueBall has to say about these.

    blossom end rot

    I agree with Pat, However a $6 bag of lime will usually fix that and there is not a fear of too much if it wasnt calcium that you needed like if it is if you over fertilize and didnt need any.

    It looks like I will have somewhere between half and 3/4 of a semi full of tomatillos. Why is it when you experiment with something that you dont really know what to do with it, it seems to grow better than anything else in the garden. I know there are several things that can be done with them...

    blossom end rot

    Go buy a 50lb bag of pelletized lime and throw a handful at the base of all your tomato plants as well as the ones you are having problems with. If you are watering ease-up cause your getting them too wet but if it is rain there isnt much you can do about that. The lime will fix it but it will...

    Can anyone help me with my Grapes

    So if I prune them back now is that a problem? My last frost date was about 6 weeks ago. I am having the same sort of problem with the rot but I know mine arent getting enough air. Do I need to wait or do I need to work them over? Will it save the ones that arent rotting?

    Jalapenos with no bite

    They are called Tem Peppers. I have grown them before to use for flavor in things when I make a "kid Friendly" version. They are quite fun to mess with people with too. Just remember which one is which before you hand out the hot ones to others and keep the tem for yourself to "just take a...
