yep. I need to make a batch of soup mix and 2 batches of salsa. Each batch takes a bushel or so of tomatoes. Plus the pile I eat.

Pretty darn good.  It was nice to cut up the green tomatoes as they are harder and easy to cut.  We did add one of those pouches of spices for salsa.  5 tomatoes was exactly 2 lbs which your recipe called for.  I did that in the morning and made 3 qts of refrigerator pickles in the afternoon as we were getting too many cukes in the frig.  Fun day!

Well I got my asparagus weeded. :doofus: holy mackerel. 2 hours and 3 loads with a ranger later gotter done. The friends I have the asparagus at, his wife said put a small amount of the real fine softer salt down and that helps control weeds. He said he talked to a Dotch kinda fella, says there's a weed killer out there that doesn't kill asparagus or raspberries but it's like 400 bucks for 2 1/2 gallons. Holy Hannah.

Got home and now done taking care of 4 dozen sweet corn. Some for soup starter I make. Rest for meals. Currently in the frig chilling.

Stopped at Mom's and watered her garden quick. Talked to her, she said the big garden produce family north of town that sells a pile of garden stuff at farmers markets doesn't have a lot of stuff this year and there blaming it on the lack of pollination

I drive past a place  on my way to work that sells alot of garden stuff and they put up bee hives last year.

You weed your asparagus? The General told me not to bother, and burn it off in the fall....

I was told by an old farmer to sprinkle some salt around your asparagus.  It will kill the weeds but the asparagus can handle it.  I went to the County salt shed and got me a pail of salt sand mixture.  Way too much brought, brought almost all of it back.  It did kill the weeds for at least a year.  Pretty good anyways.  This was early in our asparagus career so don't remember what the next year asparagus yield was.  I'm thinking it stunted them and now 10 years later the asparagus are fine but so are the weeds.  LOL  I talked to that  old farmers son who is a friend of mine the other day about the salt and asparagus.   He said well my dad must have put too much salt on them cuz all of his asparagus died.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:  This is an absolute true story.  Maybe his Dad just overdid it.  ?????
