    Default pbdc's

    all done for the season with these.
    another 8 quarts done last night.

    one of my brothers came over yesterday
    with his truck to help pick up a few things
    and move them for Ma. i'd steamed some
    beets plain and they were sitting on the
    counter cooling. he was hungry and started
    picking at them and said, "These are good.
    What are they? Give me a fork." i
    told him, then he asked us to give him some
    pickled beets and bean salad so was sent off
    with those.

    some of the dried peas are sprouting in
    the pods, so i'm not sure how well those will
    store once they dry again or if they will
    taste ok afterwards?

    anyone here try to use them again after
    they've been hydrated and sprouting or almost
    sprouting?

    i went through several patches yesterday
    and today to get as many of the dry and
    almost dry pods off the plants as we are
    forecast to get more rain. i think the rest
    of the beans aren't at that stage yet, but
    i should get out and wander around the bean
    patches and check them all anyways. it'll
    give me a chance to check on the okra.

    Be careful with the okra, we planted nine okra plants three years ago
    and we're still eating frozen okra from that crop. The things were
    loaded on an every other day basis until January and they were planted
    the previous March. Beware the Ides of Okra!

    no worries about any okra here getting to
    January. we'll be well below freezing by then.

    There's just no accounting for taste, is there?

    i wouldn't begin to try.

    even my own tastes change. i used to like
    beer and especially dark beer, now i don't
    even like the wimpy ones.

    root beer, though, is still grand.

    I used to really like Dad's Root Beer, now I drink Dad's diet Root Beer
