re: What’s a good recipe for eggplant? - Ollie1968
Eggplant is one of my favorites. Can't go wrong with cooking some down and mixing into a simple rice dressing. My neighbor talks about growing up eating 'oyster' soup his grandma made. Says it's real good. I will give it a try this year. There's recipes online....

re: 2020 Garden Thread - Ollie1968
Looking good. My garden is starting to produce a little: squash, zucchini, pole beans. Tomatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, watermelon are starting up. Bell peppers, hot peppers, and eggplants taking their time. Surprisingly, pods developing on 12 inch okra plants (hybrid gumbo variety). First time tryi...

re: Blueberries and blackberries in containers - Ollie1968
Recommend adding used coffee grounds as well to the blueberries, as you would with roses. I have mines in a partly sunny area and pick up to a gallon and a half every year off four bushes. Full sun for blackberries....

re: Blackberries - Ollie1968
Try Gurney's. Got three Apache and three Arapaho last year that are loaded now. Have two Black Magic coming in next week that I'm looking forward planting for next year harvest. [img][url=https://postimg.cc/Mvh2Y24R][img]https://i.postimg.cc/MpG6qzms/IMG-0859.jpg[/img][/url] [url=https://pos...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - Ollie1968
Thanks. That's a compost bin. It originally started as on open ground. Added the chicken wire and posts to use more yard debris. As for potatoes, I try to grow in containers since the containers don't take up too much space. You don't get many potatoes (20 - 30 per container) and they're smallish...

Thanks. Wish it was bigger so I could plant some corn to put up to make maque choux without buying canned corn. Also, wish I had room to build trellis in the sun to to grow some mirliton....

re: 2020 Garden Thread - Ollie1968
Thanks. I'm always here. Enjoy your thoughts of sowing seeds. Planning on starting "early" next year. Also, like the squirrel-le-nator. Can you angle your model up into the trees? My problem with those rats are they're a pain with bird seeds. ...

re: 2020 Garden Thread - Ollie1968
[This is the best board on the Rant. Been lurking for years and I'm really impressed with your gardens. Since I cannot go back 40-50 years to the days of the summer boucheries with the neighbors frying crackling and sweet potatoes, making hog head cheese and boudin. I choose to remember those good d...

...Johnny Hector. Top running back in The South in 1979-80. From my home town of New Iberia. Was supposedly committed to LSU...then I believe something happens to one of his brothers, I believe, like jail time...then he backs out and goes to A&M. Long time ago but thought it was a fake kidnapping...

re: Where did Miles go wrong? - Ollie1968
When RP was booted. This team didn't have an answer or replacement. The offense scheme changed and the team is still struggling to find it despite Mett's decent years. This caused LSU to fail signing QBs like Flynn or RP besides Harris. Also at that time RP would come in a couple of times to just ru...
