    Chicken lady I try to stay hydrated but difficult as plain water will make me physically ill (as in upchucking) it also doesn't quench the thirst. Usually its coffee.. by the end of the day basically you have a concentrated twisted. LOL Will try to take a pic of my fencinig hat from this summer, it was new, Now more white and grey then forest green. Got Curtains, rods, towel bars and lamps up in room. Then had to change window locks in another room as idiots broke them and cut the screen while sneaking in the back window. Think about putting up a "fake camera" and a sign on the window smile your on camera and will be turned into the cops for damages. I did catch one man trying to break into the cash drawer in if office. Kicked him off the property told him next time the cops. Well I am off to replace the screen in the storm window. Maybe bars bt guess that would send the wrong signal to "normal" folks. TTFN Hot today also.

    Mom used to make belgin ones in a pan you set on the stovetop. She gave up after awhile as my sibling would have to fill each and every cavity with syrup. Just butter for me please and no frosting on cakes or brownies. That way I can have more of the main item and less calories. [​IMG]

    Who said you couldn't fill all the spots? That's what they are there for. So the syrup doesn't run off. Lol

    Well, my expectations were met at the sustainable farm. It was pretty expensive. They will only sell 6 eggs to a person and are asking $3.50. So would be $7 a dozen, but they won't sell you a dozen... [​IMG] Never heard anything like it. Got some nice tomatoes ($1.50/lb), a few peaches, and some gnarled little golf ball sized potatoes covered in dried mud. I can grow my own little gnarly mud ball potatoes, but they had a new type I wanted to taste. Best thing was a big jar of pickled beets for hubs. Too embarrassed to say how much they were!


    My garden is plugging along. Tomatoes are starting to come; it's the foggy weather that slows them down. I've got 7-8 big plants. Green beans have been producing for a couple months now and still going, few cucumbers and squash hanging on, strawberry patch (new this year) is producing, but I have to figure out how to keep the pill bugs from eating the fruit. Lots of kale, but I feed that to the chickens mostly. [​IMG] The asparagus patch and artichokes were sacrificed to the bantam coop run a couple of years ago, and I'm planning on replacing them next year in a new spot, along with some potatoes. Now I want to try sunchokes!

    We have cherry (2), apricot (2), peach, pear (3), plum (3), and apple trees(2). Apricots did well this year, but most of the trees are suffering from the drought. I water to keep them alive, but not enough for a really good crop. I want a fig tree next.

    I have tons of paw-paw trees in the woods behind me. I never get the fruit though. something must. real interesting bloom. I tried to transplant a couple of them out into the sun and they didnt make it. Also have sarvis tree that wont grow. Its 8 yrs. old and the same size as when I ordered it. My mom said her and her aunt used to go in the woods and chop the whole tree down to get the fruit . they cant hardly be found now i guess. Kids are here watching walking dead or whatever they are calling it. bleck.

    Paw Paws like shade & water. They grow around here in the woods near creeks (pronounced kriks). We also say Warshington & skwarsh. Lol
