Does "Weed n Feed"  Really kill dandelions? And any horror stories about tree injury?

I mostly just eat it fresh.  But, the blanc ones get a special cheese sauce and
lightly microwaved.  Also when it comes on strong from my patch, I will blanch
it and flash freeze it for a day later in summer.

Questions about the forum? / Thread Notify not working

I have not had proper notify function for over a year now.
I suspect my ISP.  For a time notify emails were going into my Spam folder.
Now I can't see any evidence of a notify alert.  I even went into
the control panel and re-initialized my preferences.  Any Ideas?
thanks in advance

Almost looks too good to be true.  I understand sometimes bees do not like the plastic frames
and won't extrude wax.  I do not know how to know how much honey the bees would need
to overwinter and you would want to take care and not "over collect".

You want to be able to manage and rotate the brood frames.  So the "bees remain undisturbed"
Is not absolutely accurate.  I saw no mention of a queen excluder.

Interesting concept and design.  IMO

The Pub / Happy National Beer Day!

I had an ESB with lunch to celebrate!    ;D

Horse Blanket and barnyard come to mind.  That ain't the hops talking.

All Things Food / Re: recommend some Pots and Pans
« on: March 19, 2015, 10:41:48 PM »
Believe it or not I actually have moved to high-quality non-stick skillets. The T-fal pans made especially for walmart have outperformed my traditional copper-bottom pans. I bought both 10.5"&12" pans.

T-fal Elegance Nonstick 12"

The heavy multilayered bottomed all-metal pans have yet to warp and can survive trips to the oven and broiler. Supposedly they are tough enough to resist metal utensils but I use silicone and wood. No scratches in 9 months of near daily use. I possibly can source some lids but the they don't come with them unfortunately.

WHY oh WHY dont they have lids??

Dave it's been especially rainy here but everyone rushes outside in the dry breaks and are getting things ready for the garden and mowing their lawns. I need to get my seeds started if it isn't already too late. Spring has sprung here in Central Texas.
Wow, I was looking at importing some stone crab is that time of the year you know....

The new location at The Source (the building Crooked Stave is in) is pretty cool. The whole building has some great stuff in it.

If you make it to The Source then you should pop over a couple blocks to River North. They make a really great double wit and they do some interesting barrel beers. They source cocktail barrels from somewhere locally and put beer in it. Unique stuff.

Thank you for the tip!  ::)
