It was scary at first, but after a few chats on forums, I am comfortable with it, and I LOVE IT I am going to attempt to grow potatoes this fall, I am in central Fla. It will be my first attempt, and my garden is ready, the eyes are looking good and almost ready to go in the ground, along with another round of green beans. I have tried to grow onions twice and they start out ok, but they die when the new growth gets to be about 4 inches, what I am doing wrong. I am using the end that would get otherwise thrown out. On another note, if I dehydrate in my oven on "warm" or 200 degrees, would that work? I dont have a dehydrator [/quote] glad to know i'm not the only newbie!! growing potatoes is easy. we have bunches of them this year. i think you have to plant an entire bulb for the onions, not just the bottom or top. i'll see if i can find an oven dehydrating video. i'll be back. :herethere: [/quote] what do you mean bulb? I am trying to gather the seeds from what I grew and plant them. I was told that you could grown onions by just putting the "garbage" in the dirt, like you do with a pineapple [/quote] The onions can be planted by planting the smaller onions or Bulbs or you may gather seeds and plant them. The seeds grow on the leafy part of the onion after flowering. Ahead or bulb can be seen and is filled with tiny seeds :) [/quote]
last year i canned for the first time. wow, i was nervous.
this year, i'm doing better. i have been canning like mad.
if you'd like, tell us your how's and why's. learning to preserve food is one of the most important skills a person can learn.
if you have a picture of your preserved foods uploaded, let me know and i'll post it for you.
