    I believe they are crappie. We have eaten sunfish before though--really good if they are big enough.

    DROOLING. My favorite next to walleye. We--maybe just Ronnie, but I'm going to try--are going tomorrow. Hopefully coming home with walleye. The length limits have changed and we might have a chance to catch a keeper.

    Oh for sure!!! Ronnie loves it with both beans and meat. I just really love the cheese and pepper so mine is vegetarian usually lol.

    It's embarrassingly easy lol. You could make it more elaborate if you wanted. If you have homemade enchilada sauce then, of course, use that but I find I'm happy with a doctored up can of it from the store--I usually crush up a beef bouillon cube in a skillet, add the sauce and then add more spices and then heat up. Broil the peppers (I do it in the CSO on steam broil--500F for 10 mins on each side). Cool and peel. Cut a slit. Stuff with sharp cheddar and beans. Cover with sauce. Heat at 350F until bubbly.
  6. I grew tried to grow peas for a lot of years. I love 'em too. SO good just raw out of the garden, but they didn't do well here, either. I was lucky to get a handful out of the whole thing lol.
  7. Before I scrolled down I picked what I would have had--belly clams and oysters to start and then the dish your husband picked YUM.
  8. Thank you! Yes, straw hopefully helps with moisture--it's been so freaking windy that I hope it stays. Also, it helps deter weeds somewhat. We used to do newspaper under the straw, but we don't get newspapers anymore..... I don't do any fertilizer at all. Haven't in all the years I've had them. I think I planted a couple years after we moved here so they are probably 20 years old??? I had a lot more that died off within the first couple years. I had planted them in some very root filled soil and they couldn't compete. My mom used to work at a peony farm so I guess it's just instilled in me to love them . She would go sucker bud (dead head) and it would take a reallllly long time in that field. Anyway, yes, I pick off all of the buds except the main one--I go out every day to get any strays that I've missed. Makes for beautiful big flowers. That sucks. I didn't cover mine earlier this spring and I was scared but they made it ok.
  9. Thank you so much! Hopefully it grows lol. Got the straw put down around the tomato plants today. I'm so stiff I can hardly move. I need a shower, I stink lol. One of my peony bushes finally bloomed. I don't think I've ever gotten so many from one plant.

    Behind on posting...been in the garden a lot. Volunteer cilantro is really pretty right now. Have to enjoy it before it gets hot and bolts. Also wanted to use my cute cat dishes again So, Asian salad, potstickers and egg rolls Asparagus, fries and turkey sandwiches Shrimp Alfredo with salad and spinach Fruit salad and breakfast for dinner Tacos, beans and stuffed peppers last night
  11. The only thing we had to buy this year (grown plant-wise) was the pepper plants--8 shishito and 6 jalapeños. $70!!!! I told Ronnie we need to figure out why we never can grow peppers in the greenhouse.
  12. No but we probably should. A lot of farmers around here do that.
  13. Yeah, I'm proud of him! He's been non-stop in his little greenhouse since like the end of January.
  14. Finished getting everything in the ground today. 100 seeds of Nirvana corn Long rows of beans Radishes Lettuce (need to plant more of that in a week or so) Okra 55 tomato plants (raised by Ronnie) Squash/zucchini (raised by Ronnie) Melons (raised by Ronnie) Yukon Gold potatoes Russet potatoes 300 onion sets --white, red and yellow Cucumbers (raised by Ronnie) Shishito peppers Jalapeno peppers Here is the main garden. Didn't take pics of the other two but I will. Not a ton showing yet, but I weeded everything so I took pictures while it was still pretty lol. Been eating asparagus almost every day. Not sick of it yet.
  15. Oooooh pretty shiny pans! Thank GOODNESS. I thought I was going to be shown something that I had to buy LOL.
  16. That sounds really good. Oxtail used to be a cheap thing that I could get around here....not anymore. Last time at the store it was like $17 for a total of four puny tails. I miss getting oxtail.
  17. Beautiful!!! Look at those empty cabinets. Sigh. That hasn't happened around here ever lol.
  18. WOW!!!! That looks amazing and so easy (ish) when using the Ninja. I need to get my butt in gear and do the seafood one I mentioned.
  19. I ordered some of that hot sauce, too. Not the verde but the other one. I hope it's realllllly hot to satisfy Ronnie's wants. Most aren't hot enough for him. Very excited to hear of the search function. I've long wanted them to have one. I'll have to go check it out.
  20. I'm not going to price my pics every time just because it's a PITA to look it up lol. This order I got on Friday was $132.44. Most expensive item was the pecans--needed them for my Derby Pie--at $9.75 which is right around the grocery store price 'cause I looked on Thursday when I was there. I can also tell you that I spent $100 at Dillon's and came home with far less lol.
