I dunno if this would be in the cooking or frugality section so if a mod deems it cooking, please move it.

anyway,

Since I have my crabbing hobby, I have an abundance of crabs to eat any time I want. All i needed to do is go fishing for them.

After a day of crabbing, I got home to an empty fridge. The wife came home from work the same time. So we could either go out for dinner or dig through our pantry and make something out of scrap. This was what we made.(pic below)

Growing up in Southern California, I just naturally assumed that geraniums were perennials, and the more fertilizer they got, the bigger they grew. Then you could take cuttings and propagate them and have more geraniums. How surprised I was to move to a climate with hard freezes and discover that geraniums were now "annuals", and you got new ones at the plant center each spring. What a bit of marketing that was to make people part with their money!

The same works for peppers and tomatoes and eggplants and, oh, there's lots of plants that are perennial in the tropics that people treat like annuals because they lack a greenhouse or the diligence to see them through the winter. It does take a bit of work, you have to build a greenhouse, lift your plants and put them into pots and move them to the greenhouse. Depending on how cold your climate is and how sturdy your greenhouse is, you may have to heat it.

The next time you hear someone tell you silly things about moving plants indoors, just laugh at them and tell them "you're not getting my money next spring".



thanks for the tip. i gotta try it this year to keep them next year. geraniums get quite expensive where im from

Prune back branches, you could try core aeration, maybe add course sand. Can I ask why the mushrooms are bothering you. Is it a safety concern with children or pets?

Bill



I have been viewing the mushrooms as weeds and I want to keep my grass as groomed as possible but if the mushrooms have beneficial effects to them then i will leave them alone =)

I'll look for you on the site. I mostly steam the blues. How do you cook the dungeness?

Bill



thats quite neat if it is true. i wonder what milk does to the meat to keep them tasting fresh. I never get enough crabs for 40 lbs lol.

hello,

I have built a small pond and i can say, it is hard work! the reward is wonderful especially if you have fish like me but you will experience more misquitos unless your waterfall runs all the time. I had a small pump to filter the water for my kois but the fish eats the masquito larva so that fixed my problems =)

Hello,

So im a new gardener and i love geraniums. I read that it isnt a good idea to move the geraniums indoors for the winter . Is there any tricks to keeping them past winter onto next spring?
I moved into a new house and this will be the first summer in my new home. I noticed white mushrooms spanning 3 inches across growing in my yard. I went online to find cures and read an article that says mushrooms are very hard to get rid of since they have a huge vein that grows underneath the soil. If 100 percent of the vein is not removed then the mushrooms will eventually grow back. any home remedies or tricks to getting rid of mushrooms guys?

thanks
