re: 2022 Spring Garden Thread - convertedtiger
My tomatoes are looking great but my peppers and beans seem to be very slow starting. I bought all of my peppers and tomatoes this go around. I topped all of the peppers 3 weeks ago and they are just now starting to spread. Healthy green just still pretty small. My yellow squash seem to have a ti...

re: 2022 Hummingbirds...Anyone seeing sighting reports? - convertedtiger
What does every one do about having one bird that is a straight up feeder hog? Anything? We seem to have a resident bird that wants to own all the feeders. No matter where we put them in the yard or how many we put. He will chase off every intruder into his domain. ...

Pillage, We make many gallons of mead. I have about 50 gallons aging in carboys. It's fun stuff. My personal favorite is a cyser(apple and honey). Depending on what type of mead you are wanting to make, I can point you in the direction of the yeasts that we have had the most success with. ...

re: 2022 Spring Garden Thread - convertedtiger
I set everything up and planted all of my garden about 10 days ago. We just got back from a week of vacation and I had 4 of the pepper plants that look like they burned up. I had several others with a small amount of sun burning, which seems about normal for nursery plants. The 4 just burning up ...

re: 2022 Spring Garden Thread - convertedtiger
My garden is planted! As usual, I have too many plants. Yet another bed is now in progress. The better half also mentioned that she would like some habaneros this year. Yay! Anther variety to add to the list this season! I’m going “minimalist” this season. Peppers, and tomatoes for the vast majori...

re: Drywall. I am not any good at it. - convertedtiger
Your taping knife size can save a ton of inexperience. When starting out, I had knives from 6” to 12” wide. The wider one can really help blend in a tape line or repair. Feathering out the edges is one of the most critical items, IMO. ...

re: Westinghouse Inv/Gen Brand New Won’t Start - convertedtiger
Just an FYI, I have 2 of these genies. We slave them together for running the RV. We put over 800 hours on them over the last couple of years without a single problem. Things to remember about small engines. 1. THE MOST IMPORTANT ITEM: break in your genie properly! 2. Be diligent with your oil ...

Mine is done. Just waiting for this freeze to pass this weekend and I will plant a few things to get a bit of a head start. The following weekend(19th) is when I plan to really get everything in the ground. ...

[quote]I went the Coffin Keezer route.[/quote] That is essentially what I did. I put a 2x8 collar on and replaced the lid with a insulated wood top that has the lines running up into the coffin. I can put 4 corny kegs in. Both the nitrogen and the co2 are strapped to the back out side of the k...

I built a 4 tap kegerator out of a 7cf deep freeze. I also built a 3 tap portable kegerator that fits on top of a 30 gallon brute trash can. Does that count?...

re: 2022 Spring Garden Thread - convertedtiger
I am going to go a slightly different route than last season. I am going to dedicate one whole bed to beets and carrots until its too late in the season. I want to supplement our horse's diet with some fresh grown items. Then switch the bed over to all hot peppers. I think I will be cutting way ...

re: The 2021 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
Well, I just thought my garden was looking good. Wow, great looking gardens! Mine is coming along but nowhere near like that. A couple of the potatoes are starting to bloom. The sugar snaps and snow peas are coming to an end. I would say that experiment was a success. Though I may not plant th...

re: Rubber Mulch - convertedtiger
I say don't do it. I have several friends that went this route and regret it. The biggest issue is the burning rubber smell in our summer heat. When the sun hits it, gives off a huge amount of smell. To the point that its the only thing you smell in their yard. Hard pass...

re: The 2021 Garden Thread - convertedtiger
Welp, most of the growing tips on my peas are dying. Even under the covers. The sprouts from the potatoes didn't make it either. We shall see how things go from here on both of these plants. The mustard greens and strawberries just laughed off being encased in ice for 2 days. I am going to see h...

I covered my snow pea trellis with a tarp last night. Tonight I will have a big halogen light under there to keep the worst of the cold at bay. We shall see how it goes. ...
