  1. I am going to start some beets in a tray and get my daughter to plant them. This sucks been 3 months on last Wednesday. Still not allowed to work in the garden.
  2. I would have stayed in bed under the covers if it was 6F. That's what I like about the South. Lowest I have ever been in is +12 many years ago as a kid. Here it has gotten to +14F several times, and I stay in bed until it warms up.
  3. I cannot see the pictures and cannot find the original post on Bayou gardener. Any help appreciated.
  4. 31 deg. heavy frost on the ground. Sun is shining and will start warming up soon.
  5. Welcome back Tim, hope you are doing well.
  6. Happy New years to all members and their families and no resolutions this year.
  7. You are right about that. just a couple of years ago you used to be able to buy brisket as cheap as $0.69 a pound now it goes on sale for $2.39 a pound around here. We use brisket when we make a vegetable or corn soup to give it flavor getting expensive now.
  8. MERRY CHRISTMAS to all and your families. Remember the reason for the season, keep CHRIST in CHRISTMAS, and may God bless each and every one of you. Bob
  9. I have canned chicken and beef. Make a brown gravy add canned potato, canned carrots and seasoning to make a quick beef stew. The chicken I only use to make chicken salad or make chicken soup.
  10. I am by no means any kind of authority on the issue, but my neighbor keeps donkeys. He says that they are very protective of the cows especially the calves and will defend them from preditors like cayoties. He claims he has not lost a calf to a preditor since he added the donkeys.
  11. Yes it was Tbird. I tried it and it does work, but I had problems keeping those strings of lights working and I bought a pad and thermostat.
  12. The way it is going now, looks like no garden again this year
  13. Yes it can be done. The reason for starting them inside under a heat lamp or light is to get a jump-start on the growing season. Planting them directly into the ground you have to make sure that they are protected from any late Frost. You may being late in the season with the tomato plants and the heat might shut down pollination before you have a decent crop. An alternative is to plant them in a hoop house or a Cold frame. A Cold frame can be built with an old window sash built over a frame on the ground facing south. I had one at one time built with an old storm door that had solid glass. Google cold frames and you will see pictures of them I cannot figure out how to get a picture on this post from the internet with my phone. Got it.
