we are barbless tomorrow - she is flying to tennessee to drive a truck home with her brother tim who is moving back to star city after two years in nashville. my idea for tomorrows is to make a stew out of the whole box. maybe add an onion or two. i think you would end up with a greek dish if you had oregano. if you see a few small holes in the greens tomorrow let it be a reminder that we share this mortal coil with grasshoppers. eat your greens. (unradiated) g hoppers also starting to eat the black tomatoes. a lot of the tomatoes riper than usual tomorrow. i would say do them up asap. severe greenbean storm warnings for next week - some tomorrow but this is about to blow up. green beans are great in spaghetti sauce. if anyone wants to go to the ron paul speech in minneapolis tuesday night please let me know. signed, your friend of liberty.

honey tomorrow. barb is spinning it out right now. very tasty. bees doing well which means that they must not be too exposed to too many genetically modified crops which is the most current explanation for the colony collapses. I think the prince of england even said as much. maybe he has a soft spot for bees. GM crops are almost so destructive its almost indescribable. Google it if you have the stomach for it. You might as well im sure youre eating them. tomorrow lots more tomatoes and other items. Picture included of a raised bed put up by andy agena. A beauty. This is the way to go. You can grow almost all your food in an incredibly small plot. the farms of the future will be very large gardens - robert rodale.

csa thursday

hey guys.
has fall come early this year? love these temps. lots more tomatoes today. went to a barbeque the other night and talked about the different ways to put up tomatoes. i think the best is just cook them down and then freeze in bags. add spices....later or before freezing for winter salsa or spaghetti sauce. its great to jar them up too and that way you dont lose them when your freezer goes on the fritz as ours did last year. remember to add basil to sauce at the last minute even after turning the heat off. (same with parsley). bean tunnel is finally flowering! beans should be pouring in from here on out. barb in case you hadnt heard this is one of the best bean pickers ive ever seen. see you tonight.

the only thing that i know for sure is there is going to be a lot of tomatoes. maybe make a sauce. eat or freeze. fancy chefs peel and core for dark red sauce. i just cook all. fresh sauerkraut.crunchy. make some polish dogs for it. incredible. some eggplants. lots of small eggplants and i think i saw the bean tunnel flowering today so lots of different stuff coming but tomorrow mostly tomatoes but lots of them. give them to neighbors. included at top is video on gardening on the white house lawn. i know ron paul would grow one and probably write a cookbook too. does give a cursory idea of how to transform your lawn in to a garden. if you decide to do that i am the dumptruck guy dropping the compost on your driveway.
