I just finished a batch. Went ahead and boiled the eggs at same time in same pot as the potatoes. Worked out perfect. The rest was the usual chopped onion, chopped celery, little but of garlic, mayo, mustard, sweet relish and touch of salt & pepper. Was feeling nostalgic so tried to create what my Dad used to make. In fridge now.

I dont know if I like russets vs. yukons/reds/whites better. At the moment its the russets.

Me, I peel and then, cube into 1 inch pieces yukon gold spuds. Put them in boiling water for about 20 minutes. At the same time, cook chopped bacon in the microwave. When potatoes are done, cool them in a freezer for about an hour. Mix mayo, onion, bell pepper, salt and fresh ground pepper, the bacon, and add to the cooled potato mixture. Chill for a day, and scarf it down. Simple but tasty.

Joan, thanks for the potato salad recipe.

I have a hankering for some now.  Boiling as I type.  Do you use russets?  Yukons?  Reds?  Whites? 

I can't have onions before or at work, so I use an entirely different method, but tonight and this weekend, time for the real deal.

Do you boil the eggs with the potatoes, or separate?

Went through Buffalo, WY a few years ago. Incredibly pretty country. Was going from Devil's Tower (of Close Encounters fame), to Cody, WY for the night. Then on to Yellowstone, and Jackson to the Tetons.

Wow!  What a beautiful tool shed.

Here is a chicken wire tool shed, but it could be a place where you grow vulnerable things.

Randy, my friends in Buffalo, Wyoming, where I-90 intersects with I-25, a very wilderness area, built a frame garage and instead of siding they covered it all around and over the top with chicken wire. That is where they grow their fruits, vegetables and flowers. 

I tried to find a stock photo of one, and here is what I got when I Googled "chicken wire covered building to grow a garden"

Good luck!

Randall Smith, why don't you plant some more beets and use your shotgun to get rid of the rabbits. They aren't much to eat thought the French rave about them. I have never found a rabbit recipe I liked.
Comment by Randall Smith on July 17, 2014 at 7:19am

Pat, I sympathize. I have two wisdom teeth causing me agony and  should be pulled (ate age 71). Fortunately, they only hurt when I bite down on a seed. Good luck with the procedure. And no, I've never heard of donut peaches. I'll google them.

Wish I had beets to pickle. Rabbits ate all the leaves which killed the tiny beets. Curses.

Good recipe, Joan, thanks!
