Yes, I like it a lot. So does my family. Thank you!



You're quite welcome. Glad to see the recipe being used by others. It took me about 4 tries to get it to that point and it has been a hit with my family and friends when I hand jars of it out to them.

Fall tomatoes on the way up. Doing well.


Brussel sprouts


Question for those that have done brussel sprouts before. Do the seedlings normally kinda lean over like that? This is my first time growing them.

I plan on starting my cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower seeds this weekend.

They are just reaching for the sun. Spin them around from time to time and they'll be fine, especially once they are in the ground.

And if this is your first time growing them, you will need to top the plants at some time during their growing season to put more energy into making nice sprouts instead of just growing taller. Check out some videos about this to familiarize yourself with the process.

I do remember reading that somewhere. I’ll check out some videos. Thanks!

They are some interesting looking plants. I hope they do well. Apparently they are heavy feeders. I printed up some literature from the LSU ag center to help guide me. Hopefully I have some success. My parents grew them one year and they struggled. They harvested some, but lots of the sprouts were small.

Generally the sprouts that appear first are the larger ones by harvest time and they will come in on the bottom portion of the stems and each will be just above a leaf stalk.

As the plant grows, it will produce more sprouts along the stalk with the smaller ones being near the top.

I like to take the small ones and pickle them in a vinegar/salt brine and they come out great.

My boy got his hands dirty today. He helped his daddy fill all the pots with dirt and put the seeds in. He even said that he had fun doing it. Dad win!


Next up, teaching him to cast a baitcaster.

The way he is holding his hands indicates that he is horrified with having dirt on him.

Nah, he was all up in that dirt. Loved it. He was putting the label in the pot when I snapped the picture. We had cleaned up just before that. But make no mistake, he was filthy!

My sprouts have been small in general. Seems to be the consensus down here.

I picked & sampled my first ever Japanese Black Trifele tomato today. It had a smoky, bacon-like flavor to it. Will definitely try to grow more of these. I can’t go back to regular ole tomatoes after trying these & cherokee purples.

Update on the hot sauce: Love it!

I let it cook a little too long so it is thicker than I want and next time I might half the lemon juice but it has great flavor.

I made a hell of a mess though. It was a little too much for the food processor to handle.

It tastes similar to how I do my sauce for wings too so at some point I may try and change it up a bit for that purpose.
