  1. Already on my Prayer list and doubling my efforts! God Bless.
  2. God Bless you and your family, especially during this very difficult time. You are in my Prayers.
  3. Welcome back K. Hope all's well with you.
  4. As I am with my wife in the hospital, I can't give a lengthy response. But we have an All American pressure canner (not a pressure cooker) and I have canned a wide variety of meats. Beef, venison, poultry, fish and even bacon. Get a Ball Blue book on canning and read before deciding. Easy to do, just strictly adhere to the guidelines.
  5. Prayers sent for you both my brother! God's Grace will shine down on you. Of that I have no doubt! Daily prayers will be intensified! Reach out to me if I can be of any service my friend.
  6. Welcome aboard! And welcome to TN!
  7. Powder Valley has H110 and 2400 as I type this. Availability seems to be occurring more frequently.
  8. That's outstanding Greg! Congrats on a great garden. I agree @ReeferMac, but that's the good part about being able to can or freeze whatever we have an abundance of in a given year. We were hit with squash borer and powdery mildew this year, but still managed to put up about 20 quarts of green beans, 30 quarts pickles and a ton of zucchini. Eating fresh tomatoes every day...awesome! We're trying a late crop of crook neck squash and our butternut squash is coming up well. Okra is just beginning to set pods and a 3rd planting of green beans is coming up well. The best part is eating something from the garden every day. We still have tomatoes and sauce in the freezer from last year. We're trying to grow rutabaga for the first time and have turnips coming up. Time will tell.
  9. We were kicking around the idea of using some zucchini a few dishes with marinara sauce. My wife bakes zucchini with Parmesan cheese and Mozzarella cheese and it delicious! My favorite zucchini bread has lots of chocolate chips btw
  10. Having some concerns about my cukes The plants look good and have lots of blooms...but I have never had cukes produce so slowly. I water them regularly, the bed has been well fertilized (on the "organic" side of nutrients ala Steve Solomon). I canned another 7 quarts of Kosher Dill pickles from them yesterday, but I am used to a more robust production. As I needed an 8th quart (my brine mixture yields 8-9 quarts worth of brine) I decided to try making a quart of Kosher dill zucchini. We have used our recipe on quite a number of green vegetables like okra, green tomatoes, green beans etc with great success. The zucchini plants are still huge and still producing 2-3 zucchini a day and there's only so much zucchini bread a man can eat! Have any of you guys ever pickled zucchini before? The first run of green beans have finished. I was able to put around 20 quarts in the freezer... and we've been eating them with new potatoes (volunteer) as well. I've replanted one of the beds with another crop of green beans and they are coming up well. Butter nut squash are coming up well too. Oh...the tomatoes are low production and slow to ripen compared to previous years. And while I'm complaining, canning on a glass top stove sucks. LOL Some years are simply better, and easier, than others.
  11. Thank you. As this is my first time trying to grow potatoes in a raised bed, it took all of my self control to not go dig some up, just to check, after reading your post! LOL I'm just hoping for a few potatoes to cook with my green beans. Time will tell. I'm sure yours will yield well for you and you'll get that positive ROI! I picked 2 gallon bags of green beans yesterday and will blanch those today to get them in the freezer. I pulled up the remainder of the Swiss chard as the zucchini plants are taking over that 4x8 bed. I'll probably plant some butternut squash as in that bed when the zucchini is finished. Ah, the challenges of limited gardening space. We also got our first 2 vine ripened tomatoes yesterday... slowly getting there. I did can our first kosher dill pickles yesterday. 6 quarts of goodness!
  12. Looking Great Kev! We've been really blessed with our garden so far. We've been picking green beans for about 2 weeks and I blanch and freeze 2-3 pints of them every other day. We had so much lettuce we had to start giving Walmart bags of it to the neighbors, as there's only so much lettuce a man can eat LOL. We've eaten 4 cuttings of Swiss Chard and I gave away a Walmart bag of it yesterday and a Walmart bag full last week. I had to pull the last of the lettuce (and the chard later today) as the Zucchini plant are getting huge. We've been cutting Zucchini for about 2 weeks as well, already made 2 loves of Zucchini bread and had oven baked parmesean zucchini a couple of times. Gave several nice sized zucchini to the same friend I gave the chard to yesterday. We're almost overrun with pearl onions... I had no idea how large they get. Been eating them, cooking with them, and giving them away as well. Our 6 tomato plants all have green tomatoes on them and only one ripened so far. The cukes went crazy after that last rain and I plan to can some Kosher dill pickles later today. Yellow crook neck squash plants and okra are coming up well. Oh, the potatoes are blooming so hopefully we'll be digging a few soon. Yukon Gold = tasty. I need to get some more current pics, the attached are from the 2nd and 10th iirc ... been busy painting the house and finishing the decks. Pseudo-retirement is a darn busy time
  13. Prayers sent for you and Molly Larry. God Bless you guys.
  14. Love my 686! Purchased new around 1986. I recently chronoed some loads for it. 158 gr Hi Tek coated SWC bullets from Hoosier Bullets & Training AA#5 8.0 grs average velocity 960 fps AA#2 5.9 grs average velocity 1020 fps I don't have the chrono data handy, but I've used 6.0 grs Unique for 158 gr LSWC as my original .357 handload when I first purchased that revolver. I too like H110 and 2400 for Mag loads... but I'm running a bit low on those particular powders and 158 gr bullets at around 1000 fps won't beat you or your revolver up. Congrats on a great revolver!
  15. It's gonna happen LOL My wife just recently picked a dual chambered rock tumbler at Harbor Freight for her "projects". As soon as I pick up some pins and she's not looking... But just in case, do you have a spare couch at your place @chances R?
