In Topic: Hows Your Garden?

01 August 2009 - 09:06 PM

Oh I'm sorry to hear that. I've been sick for 2 weeks, my sons watered for me but no one picked the zucchini or raspberries. The raspberries rotted and the zukes are HUGE!
Most critters won't step over/on pumpkin vines so I try and let mine grow around my garden. Has never failed me.
Weeds. UGH
I have an extra fridge in the garage and it is packed full of raspberries, there must be 10 gallon bags of them. Plus I made jam and raspberry chipotle sauce to can.
We are always late on tomatoes here as it doesn't get warm enough to ripen them until August. I put in new beds this year and they didn't do so great, I think the soil needs amending with a lot of compost/manure.


It was coming up pretty good until I tore a ligament in my knee and couln't get down there for 2 1/2 weeks. Well, when I finally hobbled down there, I discovered that the critters got in there through a broken gate and had a PARTY! They ate all the lettuces, swiss chard, peas shoots, and green beans.
We fixed the gate but the next day, they burroughed Under the gate. So we put bricks in front of the gate, which seemed to stop them but for how long? We have smart critters around here. And, oh the weeds. I'm slowly getting it cleaned up.

Well, I still have potatoes, tomatoes, zucchini, corn , pumkins, and peppers, so all is not lost. Hows your gardens coming along?


In Topic: Feeling Pissy

Oh Elizabeth, I understand exactly. Ours is a blended family and it is purely a power struggle. It seems to be daddy's little girl that does this type of behavior. I don't feel its right though for the dad to not speak to her about this. He has to back you and she needs to see that.
I deal with a similar situation btw.
Good luck either way.



Thanks again, everyone. I know I'll have to have a talk to her. I couldn't do it right away because I couldn't be civil about it. I know the sign won't solve the problem, but she's passive-aggressive enough about the issues that it might actually help a little. She hides behind "I didn't know" when she talks to her dad about it, and that will be harder for her to do after she's not only been talked to but had a sign posted. It also can help with other, less frequent visitors to the house who honestly mean well but don't know how I need things to be.

I showed my new sign to my husband and he strongly approved. He knows his daughter is like this, and although she has a special place in her heart for disliking me, he says she's always been more or less like this with everyone (I won't even get started on examples of this same attitude I've seen in her mother because that's a whole different topic).

There is no point in getting super nasty with her, but if I have to calmly and politely ban her from my kitchen or even my house, I will.

Very interesting link. Thank you for that.

best regards, lm



That link is 3 years old and NOT CURRENT. I contacted MCD'S and they state the fries are not gluten free.

I thought most baking powder is gluten free?!

In Topic: Coffee

I'm sorry if I missed this, but why did you give up coffee?
Many flavored coffee beans are gluten free. How do you find out? Contact the company that makes the coffee, this is what I do.

I would think if you ground other things in your grinder there wouldn't be any residue left from the oats but thats just me.
Rice is used to clean coffee grinders often.
