    Battery Powered Lawn Equipment

    LOL...I remember as a kid my friend's dad had an electric lawnmower with a cord and we were always running over it and cutting it. Imagine vacuuming a carpet but a lawn and a lawnmower.....what a PITA. I had nothing but problems with 2 cycle weed whackers then I read 4 cycle engines have 1/10...

    Fermented Veggies & Hot Sauces

    10 year old hop vine.....dug it up!

    Right, after I wrote that and posted I noticed that too. Poor wording on my part. I am guessing you figured out that every year it grows 15+ feet tall.

    10 year old hop vine.....dug it up!

    So we started a hop vine from seed about 10 years ago and it grew into a huge complex of roots that grew 15+ feet each year. Problem was my wife bought the seed and didn't remember to make note of what kind because she didn't think it mattered. It was hard to pick due to the height, I made beer...

    Wow, this place looks a lot different these days

    I'm back......would you believe I only brewed one 5g batch after I got that order last June? Got on a project that took all my spare time until October then it got too cold for me to brew outside. Once it warms up a bit I need to get going, but since I didn't finish the project (repairing 2...

    Whut is your favorite pepper?

    I grow a lot of hot peppers, habanero, ghost, reaper, scorpion....but I can't eat them whole so I either make a hot sauce that I can add drops to tacos or dry them to flakes to add to pizza now and then. Problem is I have too much to use, well the flakes anyway, the sauces get used up. I make...
