Just go see the play "The Two Gentlemen of Voronezh."  It will be like a visit to Voronezh.

We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..

Trippin in the warm sandy beaches of Mustang Island
« Reply #1279 on: May 25, 2020, 10:27:38 AM »
NOTE: For those who want to comment on visiting the
beach and covid, go start a thread and comment there.

We have been cooped up indoors for many weeks and
I decided that frolicking on the sandy beaches and Salt
water was way better.



Mini Me is getting his road trip on





So many waves, so much sand what to do first?



Things didn't go perfectly. On the first night I was driving and the right
front tire blew out. I put on the stupid miniature spare tire (it took me
almost two hours to do this) sweating like a pig and drove back to the
hotel. The next morning the left front tire popped as well. Grrrrr......

more to come

Making mountains out of ant hills

They have Fire Ants in Texas. They aren't called pesky ants,
they aren't called inconvenient ants. They are called fire ants
it's because it's not fun when they bite you. 

NOTE TO SELF: Do not run over fire ant hill with
weed wacker.

Angel Eyes has a garden that produces enough pickle
size cucumbers to feed a small island nation. She also
recipe for pickles but it's a bit plain.

My Auntie has a recipe for pickles and has won a blue
ribbon in the county fair for a couple decades in a row.
My Auntie loves me but not enough to share her recipe
with me.

So I have been experimenting with recipes looking for
something zesty and spicy that is similar to what my
Auntie has.

My first batch I think I had too much vinegar. I tend to
over do it to keep the acid content high.

I use a combination of dried hot red chili peppers, garlic, mustard
seeds, dill seed, garlic, peppercorns, dill, crushed bay leaves, onions,
horse radish leaves, allspice berries, coriander seeds and salt.

They grow peaches near where we live so I bought a half bushel of them.
Angel Eyes makes it into Jam and it's fantastic for blini, ice cream or even
toast.

Her jam is far better than anything that you can buy in a store
and doesn't a million preservatives and additives in it. Yes she
uses every type of jar and lid. It doesn't matter how many jars
or lids that I buy she will still use her recycled stuff.

I've argued with her about it but she is incredibly stubborn and
has agreed not to give any Franken Jars away to my friends or
relatives. Her Russian girlfriends LOVE her franken jar jam.

Garden camouflage & RW Texas adventures
« Reply #1284 on: August 07, 2020, 03:19:01 PM »
The garden is still producing tomatoes. We had to build a
cover over the top that lets a little sun in. Apparently in
Texas the heat kills tomatoes. I put 8 ft tall posts around
the tomato portion of our garden and I built a wire mesh
above them put what could be described as a camouflage
canopy for the top. It allows some sun and some ventilation.

Who knows if it will work.

Tomorrow I will be making salsa and Angel Eyes will be canning 
it for me. This year we have a variety of hot peppers that are
ready to be picked and added to the salsa.

Usually I fry, then smoke the hot peppers. It adds a lot of
flavor and I'll take photos tomorrow (hopefully). 

Udachi!

more tons of chemical agents were released into the atmosphere here in The Woodlands recently than at an anti-Trump rally in Portland, to try and reduce the number of West Nile Virus carryin’ mosquitos...

as well as accidentally completely eliminating the local honey bee population

oh...
if only I wasn’t so mercilessly cruel to BeeKeeper
I guess this is why you should never “burn bridges”

however, with no pollinators
means no ‘maters

just the time for incel bee keepers
to rise, and claim the prize
they dream about
what strange dreams
incel fools have at night
OMG, they must be truly BIZARRE!

Bill,

If that camo cloth does not work out try looking for "Shade Cloth". It is made to block X% of sun light and is used in gardens and greenhouses.

Bill-

Camarillo is huge for tomato crop. They grow them in these rows of massive greenhouses - hot house tomatoes. I don’t know how big of an area you have for your tomato plot but they love humid condition. You can get greenhouses in various sizes and they relatively inexpensive.

hot houses

Otherwise you can get sheets of 16 mil visqueen for shade. It filters the sun and traps the moisture inside promoting higher level of carbon.

We have many varieties of tomatoes, Mamma from Voronezh gave Angel
Eyes some seeds plus she exchanges seeds with the local Russian girl
network. We bought many varieties on Amazon and she keeps seeds from
the tastiest tomatoes she harvests each year.

I have tried for many years to grow tomatoes myself and have been very
unsuccessful so Angel Eyes is totally in charge. I built the sun screen
apparatus because Angel Eyes would have built something cobbled together
with stuff in our garage, a couple of ropes and it would have blown over
and wrecked the tomatoes the first time the wind blew.

I went to Home Desperate and bought several 8 ft tall steel fence posts
then made a wire net above and then put the canopy on top.

I will have to take photos and post them here.

Udachi!

My apparatus has only been in place for a few days. If it doesn't work, I will
look for what you describe.

Thank you for the tip.

If it's camo netting, it would be better than visqueen or cloth. I use 40' x 100' visqueen to keep rain off dirt and lots of sandbags are needed to keep it down since the wind will pick it up like a parachute and send it thousands of feet down the road. Camo netting allows air to pass through.

Yes, it does.

It's approximately 10ft by 18ft (3 meters x 5.4)

In this section we have tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, and
various salad ingredients.
