Corn and Tomatoes August 4, 2017

Looks like they’re on. The spousal unit just sent me this picture.

Guess I should have said possibly NSFW. That’s also a picture of her garden thong.

Yeah, I still call ‘flip flops’ thongs.

So did you get more than 1 ear per stalk of corn?

3. skinbad - August 4, 2017

We usually get a couple of ears per.

I love this time of year. Pole beans, tomatoes, squash, all the good stuff is happening.

Love fresh beans – hated ’em as a kid

6. lauraw - August 5, 2017

Hah, me too! I would eat snails and octopus but you couldn’t get me to go for the green beans.

7. geoff - August 5, 2017

Still don’t much care for green beans, but our dog loves ’em.

8. Retired Geezer - August 5, 2017

Really? What is about them that you guys don’t like?

When we have green beans in our garden, we pick them and eat them right there.

9. lauraw - August 5, 2017

Oh, I love them now. When I was a kid I wouldn’t touch wax beans either but now if I ever grow them in the garden I hardly share. I like letting them get a little too far grown so there’s plenty of velvety bean inside. Then saute them in olive oil and butter with garlic….nomnom.

What is about them that you guys don’t like?

The squishy squirty beaniness. Don’t like peas either.

11. lauraw - August 5, 2017

Squishy-squirty? Someone is cooking them too much, probably.

Peas…you’ve probably never had a fresh sugarsnap right off the vine. I’m sorry.

12. geoff - August 5, 2017

A pea’s gonna pea, fresh or no.

13. lauraw - August 5, 2017

*shakes head* You’ve never had one. You eat the whole pod, and it is sweet and crunchy. No squirty.

It’s okay. My husband has weird food things too.

14. skinbad - August 6, 2017

My wife bottles a lot of green beans. She doesn’t let them get too big and I like those a lot. Fresh are ok, but bottled are great. I’ve come around on tomatoes–didn’t like ’em as a yute but pretty good with them now.

Just started canning a few years ago. Never have done green beans, except for pickled dill beans. Pickled dilly beans are so good. I love opening a jar in Winter and putting any kind of veggie pickles on some simple chicken or pork.

Just popping into to say howdy farmers. I have two amazing heirloom tomato plants this year that have been producing plenty of the beauties for us to consume. But about a week ago I noticed a big drop off in the ripe ones. Hmmm.

Discovered yesterday that an armadillo lives under the next door neighbor’s deck. Dude came into my yard under the fence and when I was talking to him, he just looked at me like — Hey! Get your ass inside, Lady! I need my breakfast.

So… now I have to take the tomatoes off the vine while they are still green before Mr Armadilla gets to them. I don’t know if they will ripen up, so maybe I need to get out a good recipe for fried green tomatoes.

17. lauraw - August 10, 2017

A lovely lady posted one such recipe here a while back…


18. Cathy - August 10, 2017

Wow… Just wow. Hugs, Laura.

I recall cooking these, but totally forgot that Batman posted this with photos too.

PattyAnn and Harrison made comments in the thread too.

*sniff* *sniff*

Rosetta…Lipstick…too soon.

Hugs Laura.

…and don’t forget Cranky.

26. lauraw - August 11, 2017

I never really knew that guy, wasn’t on the hostages when he was around.

27. geoff - August 11, 2017

He used to comment here a fair amount before he disappeared into the health system and then passed away. We had a memorial post for him.
