I stuck a couple chunks of purple potato in the ground on a whim.  They
taste  mighty good and hope is that they produce.  still mostly too cold here yet

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

All Things Food / Re: recommend some Pots and Pans

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 claws....it 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!  ::)

I am drinking a green beer .....it is so green it came off the yeast cake only yesterday.

This beer pours a brilliant cranberry red with a little foam quickly dissipating into a
line of foam around the periphery of my glass.  Aroma is more like raspberry than cherry.
First little sip is tart and kind of low on the mouth feel.  Non descript fruity flavor that
makes you have to hunt for any cherry.  Sneaky 7% abv that also makes you hunt for
the alcohol warmth that is not present.... better be careful with this and have a designated
Driver around.  The foam ring clings to the edge of the glass and lasts quite a bit.  By the
2nd or 3rd ounce, you are enjoying the beer.  Before the end of that little 12 oz glass I was
feeling the 7% big time.  I would have another but definitely not a session brew.  A beer to be
shared with a friend.

Then there is the gluten aspect.  If that is the malady, there are gluten free beers.
I as well have developed a physical problem that trends me toward light to no consumption.....
I am sure the Doc would prefer zero alcohol intake.....I rue the day.

I think that having the glass....is Meh....but when you have the branded flagon with
it's beer inside you are at least headed into the snob realm.....
