What to do with just a few loquats

Saturday, I headed over to my friends house, to help her pick her loquats. Unfortunately, she pruned the hell out of it over the Winter, and incorrectly. All the lower and inner branches were gone, so all the fruit was way up high. We got what we could, and she gave me all of it:

From that, I made loquat preserves, with lemongrass:…

At least some of my plants like the heat

The melons and cucumbers are going crazy. Especially the melons. The cuke plants are getting HUGE and blooming, but I'm not seeing any product.

The Charentais melon, on the other hand...

I took this pic on Friday:

Now look at it as of this morning (Monday):


UPDATE: This morning, I noticed the vine supporting the bigger one was getting… Continue

No 'Poo

I'm goin' for it.

In the mustard bottle, "shampoo" : 1 Tbsp baking soda.

I fill the bottle with water in the shower. Give it a good shake, and apply to the roots. Massage it in, and rinse out.

In the spray bottle, "conditioner" : 1 Tbsp of ACV per cup of water, plus a few drops of essential oil (I used hyacinth). I store it in the fridge.

Spray it on the ends. Let it sit for a few minutes, and… Continue

My "vacation" day

Monday I had a doctor's appt mid-day, so I just took the whole day off.

6:00 am

First thing, I hit the gym. When I got home, I folded the bread dough that I had prepared the night before, and hit the showers.

8:00 am

All sparkly clean, I did some graphic design work, and then pre-heated the oven. I finished the baking and MM MM it smelled good.

I'm not much of a baker, but the… Continue

Great page and photos.
Thanks for your interest with my shade sail offer. Your photo is a big aid in my assisting you.
I can most certainly do everything you ask with your dimensions.
A few thoughts:
A sail exactly like you asked is $50
I can design a tension system that will stretch the fabric tighter for an additional $5 dollars per corner.
2) make a webbing strap corners that you can loop on the top of your brick caps with one corner utilizing a cinching mechanism to tighten the hemmed edge.
Give me a call! 727-479-4440

We're on the same page....I'm gonna try canning next too :-)

I'm gonna have to try that...since I'm trying everything else these days. I think my bread (which is amazing!) toasted and your coffee...would be the ticket!
