    Today's haul.

    This is what I picked today. I made pico de gallo yesterday and used a bunch of tomatoes, but still had more than I picked today on hand. We're runnin' out of friends to give tomatoes too.

    And I had a BLT last night, and a tomato sandwich today. I don't can any more, but will freeze more tomorrow...

    Well, I won't tell you what I picked today. But I can tell you I have a clean nose.

      ofelles Now, now, don't jump to conclusions. I picked up my handlines because the hay gets cut this week. I didn't get my nose dirty doing it. So there.

      Did your nose go on strike? Did you pick it?

    Nothing like fresh tomatoes.




        When we lived in middle GA there were so many great small farms around to get tomatoes like yours along with peaches of course. A BLT was my first sandwich to make followed by a good burger and then a salad, one forgets how good they are until you get really good ones.


          There are very few things as overrated as most store bought tomatoes. Those are beautiful. I can see it all now, a smash burger patty, two slices of one of those, a leaf of lettuce, a paper thin slice of red onion, three dill pickle slices, mustard and a toasted bun. Life would be so good!


            Not to hijack, but while we are pickin, this mornings haul, Armageddon. Click image for larger version  Name:	9146A934-00E3-40AE-BCC8-A17A3D515352.jpeg Views:	15 Size:	1.80 MB ID:	1074419

              It is okay. You did save the planet from that astroid after all. Nice looking peppers.

            Nice haul today.


              I made spaghetti sauce with some of the tomatoes today and there was enough for 7.5 meals for the two of us.

                Tomatoes in the south are pretty much done by June so I'm about 2 months ahead of you. My salsa and tomato sauces are almost depleted. Enjoy your bounty while you can !!!

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
