Spud, I can see all your symbols. I don't know how to make them, esp. the degree one. This is from a guy that couldn't figure out how to turn on his new monitor. Embarrassing.

I was wondering what ever happened to Barbara. She was into gardening and seemed to enjoy our group.

Made "Asian kale stew" last night from the remaining garden kale. I'll probably lose it in the next several days with super cold temperatures forecast.

Me to Daniel. And we'll never know. Cel is still hanging on but she's dropping weight faster now. It's been over six months since her dr suggested hospice so she's beaten the odds. But I'm certain she can't last till Xmas. She's changed the last couple weeks.

Kathy, I really miss Pat too.  He did post that he had a heart attack.  Makes me sad.

Joan that's it. I found out my second sister does have the ingredients and still makes it. She's supposed to bring it to me after Xmas. I remember there were very few onions and peppers. Probably a one to four ratio to the apples and green tomatoes. My sister makes it by memory too.

Daniel, my Grandma Whitehead taught me how to squeeze the lard into the flour until the mixture was a lot of tiny balls. I had to stand on a chair to reach my bowl. Today, I just use my blender; I thin Grandma W would be using that tool as well, if she were alive. 

Kathy, I did find a lot of different recipes for 

apples, 

green tomatoes, 

sweet green peppers, 

onions, 

hot peppers, 

Put all through grinder, 

put all in cloth to drain juice.

apple cider vinegar, 

sugar, 

salt, 

lemon juice.

The recipes included a lot of other ingredients. So, I guess I will just guess at the procedure and quantities.

Yes, I think it was Barbara.

The first symbol is the only one I can't get. It looks like sideways teeth. Or maybe an hour glass sideways with extra lines through it.
Was it Barbara you are thinking of who quit after a months? A lot of people come and go. You can't take it personal.
I wonder more about Pat, the funny guy, that was on here for years. Loren said he had heart trouble so he's probably gone for good. I really liked him.

I've been seeing snow here for the past week and temperatures are dropping.  It was 5 degrees Fahrenheit (negative 15 degrees Celsius) this morning.

Daniel, that's interesting that the apple symbol showed on your tablet, but not your laptop.  I'm thinking I should refrain from posting symbols, as they may not show correctly on some computers.

The last year, I've been using the degree symbol on my temperature readings, and think now I should stop that also.

How many of you don't see the apple computer symbol here?   

How many don't see the temperature degree symbol here?  °

How many don't see the ohm symbol here?  Ω

How many don't see the cent symbol here?  ¢

Daniel, I didn't know, and was surprised that store apples were that far from tree ripened.  Like you, I'm sure that I would like them much better if they were tree ripened.

After reading your post, I remember many years ago eating apples off of trees and enjoying them.  But I enjoyed the tart ones best, and even ate some of the sweet ones before they were fully ripe, because they were sour.  

If I ever get more land, I'll plant some.  I think I have room here for a small crabapple.  Do you think it's too late to take a cutting off of one I like and try rooting it?

You may remember that I tried it before from a crabapple that I found a little over a mile from here, and liked the taste of.  Those cuttings never grew, but I tried it in the spring and you said I would probably have better results in the fall.
