    favorite Top 5 favorite breweries?

    funny how 100+ years ago they started in France and now there is only 1 French Trappist left (most are in Belgium) That said, I absolutely agree that it's either local craft or Transit for great beer!

    Bleach Dilution Ratio

      1 part of 8.25% bleach to 1.75 parts waters get you to your desired 3%. To keep it simple, mix 1 part of 8.25% bleach with 2 parts water and your concentration will be 2.75%.   btw - with the 5% bleach, mixing 3 parts water to 2 parts bleach actually yields a 2% solution.

    organic I think I've found the best Organic Pesticide

    a) it's NOT organic. I may list some ingredients that are natural, but that's not the same as "organic", especially considering the major ingredient is most likely mineral oil (a petroleum distillate)   b) the instructions state to cover food or food processing areas, so not sure I'd want to use...

    sun morning sun or afternoon sun ?

    First sauce

    Hi all I've been lurking and learning for close to a year. Salsa is something I've made for several years but finally made my first sauce today. I'm waiting on several plants worth of ghosts and habs to ripen, but figured I've got enough red tai chilli so might as well experiment. 2 cups tai...
