Tomato help---
All my tomatoes are coming in. I've canned, sun dried and gave some away but still there are more. Any ideas of some different ways to put them up or use them?
Take them to a local food pantry? That would be a nice gesture and so many would appreciate having them. Or have you ever pickled the green ones? They're SO good pickled with some sweet onions!! You can also lightly blanch, peel and then freeze them in ziploc baggies to cook with before you start in on using your canned ones.. Or try your hand at homemade tomato juice?

:)

Beautiful day. Can you believe it's this cool and nice? It IS August...right?
It surely is a pretty day, Roaming. I had my coffee out on the porch this morning and the Hummingbirds were already out, albeit moving a little slow yet, hehe! Even had a little squirrel come up and start chattering at me.
(I threw it a corner of my toast. That seemed to satisfy it somewhat, lol)

I hope you're feeling better and your broken heart is healing a bit. Things like that never go away completely, but we learn to deal with the loss of our loved ones somehow. It's how the Lord made us I guess..

Thanks! I have taken many to the elderly people in my neighborhood. They were so glad to get them and many said they looked forward to a good mater' sandwich. I inquired and found out that was bread, mayo and tomato. I did freeze some but will try the tomato juice (I like that). Someone suggested tomato jelly (never heard of that). Again thanks!

I think I will go make some hot biscuits with homemade blackberry jam, fried potatoes, and eggs. Nope, your grandma probably never broke the yolk in the cast iron skillets because the eggs were always fresh. When one gets store bought eggs, they can easily be 2 to 3 weeks old and yolks are more pale and more easily broken. Good Day folks, I have chores here plus I need to go into town.
Yes, they were fresh eggs. But she'd crack a dozen or more in that skillet at one time and could still manage to flip 'em like a pro, LOL! When she cooked breakfast, that meal was just as huge as her suppers were. And we'd always have fried squirrel, rabbit or smokehouse ham/bacon on the side too. Whatever my Grandpa provided for meat, she was prone to cook for any meal she made. Even a plate of fried chicken wasn't an oddity for breakfast with her eggs, biscuits, gravy and such.. I don't think she knew how to cook 'small'. It may have been due to not having much when my Mom and her siblings were growing up. I know my Momma told me many times of having nothing but a biscuit and some fried taters to take to school for her lunch back when my Grandpa worked the coal mines. Man, times were so rough for them all back then.

I absolutely love your stories, Ancient Wolf! I wish I could put some of these in a scrapbook, that I could read sometimes. Coal miners, fountain drinks. Still have not had much time to find these songs, but, I will be 'off tune signing soon! Back to the tree. 25 whacks at a time. Pie and coffee breaks, and whatever rolls my way, in between.

Lol! Nope, that is great! Your grandma was an amazing woman too! Now, back to the tree.

Try your local Senior Citizens Center. The cooks there are always glad to get any excess tomatoes, beans, corn, eggs, or whatever. Mine prepares lunch for about 30 seniors daily Monday thru Friday. I even take them the green tomatoes for fried green tomatoes and they give me fried apple or other fried fruit pies to eat any time I go there.

I have been sitting out in my swing shucking and jiving and getting my corn ready to freeze. The chickens all gathered around eating the silks and wanting me to hurry back with the cobs for them to have something else to munch on.

Hello, good day. The weather is cheering up thankfully. All this talk of music reminds me of a story I have always wanted to share, but too embarrassed to tell anyone I knew. I took my eldest daughter to see Willy Nelson at the fairgrounds. I don't remember what year but some time in the 80's I believe. We could hear him but never actually saw him as our seats were too far away. We ended up having to leave because people all around us were smoking refer. I do believe my daughter and I were high. I remember it stunk so bad I thought to myself how in the world do people smoke that stuff. I did not anticipate that happening but we did giggle all the way home. I have always wanted to share that story. I hope it gives you all a chuckle. I do enjoy my wine, I'm not a prude. My husband enjoyed his beer an awful lot, tho we never got to enjoy the spirits until the children were grown and gone. Then I realized I should have drank some sooner. Tom T Hall was my favorite back in those days. I like a variety of music, from country to classic but not the screaming noise. Have a good evening all.
Just LOVED that story. What I wouldn't have given to go to a Willy Nelson concert, minus the weed (that's what they call reefers now) Lol. Never got into the spirits....wine gives me heartburn and beer a headache. But I do enjoy one of those fancy frozen drinks once in awhile, if Hubby and I go out to dinner. I enjoy all kinds of music as well, including country, classical, classic rock, and whatever drifts by my ears. I don't like "heavy metal" either, with all the noise and screeching.

Just read through the last several posts and really enjoyed everyone's reminiscing of times gone by!
The present time with getting that tree cut with an axe and shucking all that corn, well, a person's gotta do what a persons gotta do! When a chain saw gives it up at the wrong time THAT is bad. Good luck and hope you get it repaired soon!
I haven't given my hens/chickens and corn husks yet But My chickens went berserk over a watermelon rind! I stood and watched them almost come to blows over that rind! I can understand their action as I love watermelon also!

Is Abeliever still around? Glad to see you're still alive and kicking. LOL. All is well with mama and Leona. My son goes off to the Army on the 11th of August and we have moved to Oklahoma to be closer to my wifes family. One good thing about being a Correctional Officer is you can get work in any state you want. I hope my old friends are still out there. I hope to hear from you guys soon.
I'm worried about Abeliever too, I hope she's doing well and posts soon.
Sorry about all the trolling in the past old chap, I sincerely apologize.
Hope you are liking the big country up there in Oklahoma, best wishes to you and yours.

Yep, mine turned out great. I gave away about 30 dozen to the old folks, put a bunch in the freezer, and still have more out there. I put Ivory soap chips around the cornfield twice and that kept the deer away. It must have helped with the raccoon population too since they only snuck in and got about 6 ears.

My dinner date from the other night must have been impressed LOL She is coming back for another meal and a movie. I need to get cooking. I may be old, but I ain't dead yet LOL Thanks to the Good Lord. And as Tiny Tim would say "God Bless us each and everyone" Good Evening to all.

Well you know a good woman is always fine company to keep. I know a newly-wed couple that got married just last year. The blushing bride was a chipper little thing of 72. Her husband was in his early eighties. They met on-line.
He drove right up here from Tennessee and wooed her for a few months then married her and took her off with him.
Be careful Wolf ! LOL

I have known this lady for many years and we just enjoy each other's company and have similar tastes in movies (and food). But we are both adamant about no wedding or further involvement. At our age, we both have way too many other obligations. She just keeps me from being a total hermit. But thanks for the warning. LOL

There's an elderly uncle in the family that married 5 years ago. He married a sweet young thing of 72. At his birthday party a few years ago he danced with his wife. It was his 103 birthday. He's 105 now and uses a walker. She's using a moterized wheelchair. Just never know..!

Oh, but I DO know !!. I said that 10 years ago and sticking to it. My friend is my best friend mainly because she feels the same way. We enjoy our time together, and enjoy doing our own thing when we are not. I am too old to be retrained and so is she. LOL

Yes. I hear your words. My aunt said the same thing when her last husband passed about 14 years ago. And she has stuck to it. However a year or so ago a gentleman walked into her life and all at once she was 16 ( with 60 years experience) again!!! Her face--and his-- would absolutely glow when the other walked into the room. She shyly confided in me that even though she'd been married 3 times (she buried the last two) she had never felt like this before! They were the most watched couple in their church and enjoyed every minute of it!! Lol
Alas, she lost her precious friend to cancer within the year but she holds the most wonderful and treasured memories in her heart!
