  • Drive down Midland road and both sides up to the asphalt are Black-Eyed Susans...pickles, pickles, pickles,...Got any crisp, garlic, okra pickled with a pepper anywhere?...I could eat my weight in it, and love it sliced lengthwise, coated with a flour, cornmeal dust and flash fried...I must be hungry!

  • You just reminded me that I need to pickle some garlic. Thanks.

    Last year we had so much that it went bad.

    This year, I will first plant next year's crop, then pickle some, give some to our regulars and we should end up with only a few when next year's crop comes in.

  • I am not aware of any yet, but we don't have reason to see them for the big show.

    My wife and I have been involved in the Wartrace Show because we were part PIO about 18 years ago. We have not been able to let it go yet. I keep hoping though.

    Cascade PTO has some reliable folks in there right now and we hope they will eventually take it all away from us. :-)

  • That is PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) NOT PIO, not sure what that might be.

  • We had a small but good meeting. swapped some veggies, learned about a few new plants and discussed recipes.

    That reminds me, I have to print out a recipe we found for chicken cooked in ginger for a member who will not touch a computer. Here is the link she wants: http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/lorraine-pascale/chicken-cooked-in-ginge...

    Also had a fellow stop by to see if we sold seeds. We don't, but many of us give them away a little later in the Fall or next Spring. Ya'll come back to see us, ya' hear?

    It is about time to start giving away some houseplants. I was reminded that it had been a few years since I gave away some fig trees. Keep an eye out!

  • Just a note for that recipe...unless your use to fish sauce and or eat a lot of Asian cuisine you may want to cut back on the fish sauce by 1 tablespoonful...it can be over powering and at times depending on the brand, extremely salty....and if indecisive on the Szechuan style pepper you could substitute a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce....sounds delicious..I'm kinda hungry (as always) maybe a strong flavored dish would hit the spot...anyone for Chinese?
