New Forum Ads

A few new ads are messing with the functionality of site. The black box with the little red logo makes it so my cursor moves and I can't type. I literally have to x out that ad on every single page I visit. Is there something on my end I can do to stop this? It is also affecting my scrolling. 


Compost Porn

I had neglected my worm farm for a while but finally got around to cleaning her up. This tray is loaded with vermicompost! Beautiful, rich compost....this one tray filled up a five gallon bucket more than half way.

Fire Chili !!

24 October 2016 - 12:26 PM

This recipe is so tasty, but also so hot. Next time I'll tone it down on the super hots.

 

3 lbs ground beef, browned

2 cans kidney beans

1 can tomatoe sauce

25 oz skinned tomatoes, chopped. I used home grown tomatoes out of the freezer... or 2 cans diced tomatoes

2 cups sweet onions

5 roasted and skinned hatch chili peppers, chopped (this is what makes this recipe)

1 Carolina Reaper seeded, diced

1 Bhut Jolokia seeded, diced

2 tsp garlic powder

2 TBL chili powder

 

Slow cooker. One hour on high, switch to low for 5 hours. 

 

It's hot! Replace the super hots with a more reasonable pepper if you're serving mortals. 


Freeze Tomatoes to Can Later?

29 August 2016 - 05:09 PM

I have too many tomatoes to eat but not enough to justify all the work for a canning session. I want to just toss them in the freezer throughout the season and can everything all once the harvest is over. Anyone done this? I've read to skins peel off real easy once they thaw a bit on the counter. 


I Got Slugs

I think....and Sluggo doesn't seem to be working. Maybe I need to apply it more frequently? Any other products or tricks to destroy these demons?
