We picked some green tomatos yesterday, which I will add to a salsa to give it a perky bite. These tomatos are small like miniature pears so, no frying them as I grew up with in Alabama. I will be planting some Beefsteak from seed once I find a 5 gallon bucket because that monster will need a serious root space to grow properly.
One thing that did surprise me here was; no local craftsmen or women who really homestead. I asked the nursery staff in Three Rivers if they knew of anyone who sold beeswax. No luck again.
I understand TEXAS gets RED BABOON BUTT UGLY HAWT (102 yesterday at 4 p.m. on my back porch) however, what did pioneers do?
I am using almost exculsively hot water and vinegar to clean surfaces in my country kitchen. It does not take long for grime to build up; I am convinced vinegar is just as good or better than purchasing commerical items. I also do not have to worry about residue left behind and it is a great deodorizer.
