Well, I mowed the grass early this morning, had to wait 'til daylight to finish though, because the batteries went dead in the flashlight. Then I went to Concord and finished putting that hood on the mixer. Don't remember when it was last started, but it fired right up. I dumped about 800 gallons of water out of the drum and let it run about 15 minutes.

Then I stopped at Carson's Store and got 2 rolls of chicken wire and made a fence around the garden. The chicken wire was way more expensive than I thought it would be-$28 for a 50' long, 3' high roll and I needed 2 rolls. I could probably go to the vegetable stand in Gladys and buy $56 worth of produce and get more than the total output of my garden, but I can't let the creatures get the best of me, right? They're already eating my cabbage plants! I feel like Bill Murray after the gopher in "Caddyshack".

Fence looks pretty good too. I left some extra at the bottom, folded it out on the grass, then laid 4x4's on it. The owl certainly doesn't do his job, the pepper spray didn't work, Other Dog the beagle won't work, so maybe this will do the job.

I hope so, because there's only one option left that I can see- fried rabbit...squirrell stew...rabbit pot pie...squirrell and dumplings...rabbit on a stick...sauteed squirrell with peppers and onions...marinated grilled rabbit...barbecued squirrell-what am I saying?!!I couldn't do that!..could I?..maybe :D

Saw 3 doves at the bird bath...no squirrells reported in the area.

The hood looks real good.

And the fence should do the trick as long as you don't

stumble into in the middle of the night in a drunken stupor.

Just put some of your bbq sauce on a meatloaf. Fixed the

old meatloaf right up!

I only stumble around inside-i'm afraid to go out after dark...unless my fearless dog is with me :rolleyes:

The paint doesn't match exactly,but it's close enough. Actually it's more noticable in the picture than when you're standing beside it.

I just finished the last of a jar of pesto I had-it was delicious too! I was just reading about pesto on Wikipedia because Jo was wondering what was in it. The article said you could store it for up to a week in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator. I had that in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator for months and it tasted the same as it did when it was brand new.

Glad you liked it!

I only make the pesto when the basil is fresh, and I keep it

in the refrigerator for months.

Haven't gotten sick once!! (It'll probably keep us both alive)

Actually I think the secret is to cover the top of the pesto with olive oil

to seal out the air before you close up the jar. That's what the old Italian

cooks do. It keeps the stuff from turning black and losing the flavor.

Here's a little discovery -

Mix up equal parts of tomato catsup, Heinz Chili Sauce and your

BBQ sauce for a tremendous quick sauce to put on top of any roast or

meatloaf. Really nice peppery, but not hot, after taste.

Have you got any suggestions for slow cooked Pork shoulder roasts?

I've been thinking about some for the last couple of days.

Probably this weekend's project.

I always cook them in the smoker oven-low and slow, starting with charcoal then putting wood in it. I coat it with the rub first, then when it's done (when the bone pulls out easily) I either keep it whole for a roast and slice it, or pull the meat off and mix it with the vinegary homemade BBQ sauce.
