Harvest Time #9: Green Cherry Tomato Pickles "FROST! Harvest" Recipe

2101 days ago by Scott Hildenbrand | 31 comments »

So what do you do when there are still tomatoes on the vines but frost is coming in fast? Well, you do a mad dash harvest run! So, now that you have so many green cherry tomatoes, what then? Why, whip up a batch of green cherry tomato pickles! Was the wifes’ idea to do that… Still got plenty of tomatoes on hand however, so tomorrow I’m going to dig up everything I need to make some green (and some red) tomato ketchup. :) Still got plenty of figs on the f...

Chickens in the garden

2392 days ago by XploreOrganics | 45 comments »

Before we moved to our new home we discussed having chickens. We would get a few for eggs and perhaps even a few meat birds…BOY WAS I WRONG. I should have known better that with my personality those birds would win me over – BIGTIME. We moved into our new home and that summer decided to get 3 hens of almost laying age off a local farmer. We would not name them in fear of getting “attached”. When we spoke of them it was the red one, the black one and the mu...

Container Gardening #1: "Digging" Container Gardening

1640 days ago by Brad | 15 comments »

Why would I container garden? Good question! Suppose you were in this predicament: You resided in an apartment, or maybe you live in a condo with no yard space? What if you were like so many gardeners who actually have a great garden space, but just need “a little something” on the front porch? A container garden is exactly what you need. Many gardeners will even strategically add containers to their flower garden or amidst their flower beds, just to fill a void that nothing...

Growing My Way to Freedom #3: Sea Buckthorn Berry Jelly

1796 days ago by Radicalfarmergal | 42 comments »

This morning I decided that my Sea Buckthorn berries were ripe and ready to pick. I have been eagerly waiting for this day because this is the first year we have had enough of a harvest to do anything and it looks like a bumper crop! Initially, I had two wonderful helpers with me. They love to go blueberry, raspberry, currant and apple picking so they were quite excited by the idea. Unfortunately, they quickly became discouraged and I was soon the only one picking. Picking the berries is...

2008-11 Edibles #62: oh my back ---

1445 days ago by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

August 14/10 most of today was spent in the kitchen. At the end of the day I have: 7 quarts of sweet pickles 5 quarts of stewed tomatoes 5 trays of dehydrated cherry tomatoes (my 3rd dehydrator full of produce) With tons of tomatoes still ripening, I’m in the process of finding out which preserving technique is best for which type of tomato. Cherry tomatoes: work great in the dehydrator. I just quarter them, leaving a smidgen of skin holding the sections together. This ...

The friend I got it from knows nothing about it. <div></div>
