The Tomato Chronicles - Hardening Off
Tags: ,
..
By Mindy McIntosh-Shetter
..
Hardening off is a step that many inexperienced gardeners skip as the “gardening bug” erupts as temperatures rise.
But this step is very crucial to a gardener’s success.
Hardening off is the process by which seedlings are gradually exposed to the outside environment.
Wind, temperature, and light intensity are all different outside then what the seedling is used to inside. If this step is skipped leaves get burned and the plant goes through unneeded stress that can cause death of your seedling. Hardening off is not a difficult process to fit into one’s busy schedule and in my personal opinion should take about 3 weeks total before you can safely leave them outside.
The schedule below should start

Dear Ray,

...
With the heat of the summer in full swing, you know there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a cold glass of water or a dip in the pool, lake or ocean. But what would you do if you were a hot, thirsty bird and couldn’t find that relief? Since normally abundant water sources can begin to dry up in the sun and heat, some of our feathered friends find themselves desperate to find a cool haven.
You can help provide a refreshing oasis for wildlife thisseason simply by
creating a National Wildlife FederationAdvanced “Bird-Friendly” Certified Wildlife Habitat™ site!Whether it’s a place for them to clean their feathers or a stopover to refuel with a quick drink, all birds need water year-round. And they’re relying on you to help! Simply providing a water source in your backyard is one of the best ways to care for and attract local birds, from hummingbirds to songbirds — even some waterfowl! Here are a few helpful hints for turning your yard into a haven for wildlife this summer.
Provide a bird bath on a pedestal or a shallow dish at ground level to attract birds of all types and sizes.
Stack rocks in your bird bath to create landing places so tiny hummingbirds can bathe.
Clean and refill your bird bath or water dish every few days to prevent your water source from becoming a breeding habitat for mosquitoes.
Create a pond, if space permits, to provide habitat for wading birds, ducks and other waterfowl. After providing a water source and other essentials for the birds in your neighborhood, don’t forget to
designate your garden as an Advanced “Bird-Friendly” Certified Wildlife Habitat™ site. You’ll not only experience wildlife in your own yard, but for your $35 application fee, you’ll receive many other benefits too (see sidebar to right)! Get started today!

A new day has arrived and I am still feeling very good. I awoke this morning feeling rested and that is a good feeling.

Here is my thought for today

'' These things havve I spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer; I have over come the world."
.
These are words of Jesus, John chapter 16 verse 33. It was in our bible study last night. What is better than having the peace of God in our hearts, Dad

A few days ago I was talking to you about the tomato season being over, I got to thinking afterwards that it is over here in Dads little part of the world but not in others places. In fact the tomato season is never over, somewhere in the world they may be just getting their plants in the ground.. And as you know my blog is read in 91 countries I will keep on talking about tomatoes and how I can help you produce the best, Send me your questions in, No charge just a smile from you . DAD

Smoked Tomato Barbecue Sauce
Tags: ,

..
By David Harbilas
In my last post I noted how smoking tomatoes lends a barbecue flavor, so why not enhance a regular barbecue sauce with smoked tomatoes?
This is essentially a regular, coffee-based barbecue sauce with the addition of pureed smoked tomatoes.
Some of the sweeteners, like molasses, have been omitted, as the tomatoes will take care of that. But slow simmering always improves a barbecue sauce
Makes about ½ gallon
6 cups tomato ketchup
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1 onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon dried ginger
1 tablespoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Read the rest of this entry »

TUESDAYS ENTRY # TWO THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED EIGHTEEN

Good Morning.

Another nice Tuesday morning and I am out of my bed in a very Happy Mood. The reason that I am happy is because we are going to have two Dear friends of ours to have a noonday meal with us today, So that is one reason that I up this early is to help Mary do a little cooking.
.
And her menu is very simple just plain old country cooking in Dad's kitchen. I would not swap that for the finest restaurant in Knoxville.
Here is part of her menu. Angus Beef roast, home grown green beans, boiled new potatoes. Dad's sliced tomatoes, and fresh corn off the cob. And I see a pecan pie sitting over there. I wish that all of you could be with us, but I know that you can't so I will do all I can, I will at least be thinking of you. DAD
.

This below is a comment that I received from Sara
's Aunt Betty who lives in HI which I value very much,
.
''.Dear DAD,Sometimes we do too much, think too much, see too much, or hear too much and it makes us tired. I am proud of you that you got yourself to your desk and computer this morning. There are so many of us who start our days with a visit and a cup of coffee with you. You are making a difference. With that said, I can send you a smile. I hope, for lunch, you were able to eat some "rays of sunshine" as Dar suggested. Be thankful for small pleasures. Aloha, Sara's aunt.
.
And I will never forget Joan Sara's Mom, she has been such a great help to me in keeping me going on when I needed it so much. DAD
.

As usual I am on my way to Sara's Dog Training blog to see my friends would you like to come along you are always welcome. DAD
.
Before I forget I want to tell you what Mary and I did yesterday. We edited our side panel and it needed it very bad. There were so many things there that were not useful so we used the knife on them, For instance my links to my 3 cams were never working but all 3 are right there handy for you. We can always add other important links as they may come up. Dad .

My plans for this day are not so shure yet. I am a little behind in gathering ripe tomatoes so I may plan on doing that this morning, on these hard monday morning we need something easy and what job is easier than that. SMILE.

Is it to early in the morning to talk about " Fried green tomatoes." While I think of it I want to tell you what I did yesterday afternoon. While I was in the garden I saw all those nice green tomatoes and I gathered about a dozen and headed for the kitchen and in the skillet they went. And what a good meal we had. I was thinking of a lot of you as Mary and I enjoyed our meal. I did also have some fried Okra to go with this. I offered Prince, Marys new pet some of these things and he turned up his nose and walked away.
