Mark,

Our weather here in our area was only around 87 degrees F, but it was very humid, so that made it a lot worse.

Great to hear you won one of the raffle prizes.  I am sure you would put what you won to great use.   :chef:

If you think the boardwalk thread is long, there are other threads on this forum that are longer and there at still members searching for cheeses, sauces, or how to make a certain pizzerias dough.

But I was smart enough not to get involved in those other ones! :-D

Bob,

You are so right!  :-D  I know insects, spiders and tomatoes can sometimes be frustrating, but anyone on a reverse engineering thread trying to help only knows what happens there.  We never still found that darn molasses on the MM thread.  You also helped on that thread and saw what happened.   8)  The boardwalk thread was interesting to me because I always like that pizza, but never thought I would find the cheese.  If it isn't one ingredient, it is another that give problems.  :-D  Those reverse engineering threads always teach me a lot though.

Cory,

You are a great cook!   :chef:  Great minds think alike.   ;D  I had to use Craig's help.   :-D

Norma

Haha I don't know about that Norma! I probably had read about him doing it but forgot about it and it was still stuck in my mind, so I only think that I came up with the idea on my own. :-D I always get help on something usually too, and a lot of times it is from your previous posts on this forum.  8)
More is better..... and too much is just right.

Cory,

You are always experimenting with some kind of food.  You also learn quickly!  ;D  I enjoy your food adventures too.

Your veggies look delicious, especially the tomatoes.  ;D

Hope you will post some pictures when you use your veggies on a pizza.

I had a hawkmoth buzzing my petunias this evening, Norma, so I thought of you.  LOL   :-*

The pigeons took another picture of the garden late this afternoon.  The tomatoes are pretty much done except for the Matt's Wild Cherry which is disease-free and still going strong.  The fall cucumbers are beginning to bloom now.  The beans are about finished as well so I'll leave the remainder of the pods to mature and dry out for next year's seed.  The husks on the ears of popcorn are brown and ready to be harvested.   ;D

Dang Pete, donít even think of me when you see a hawkmoth.  :-D  It is weird, but I only saw two of those bugger hornworms this summer, but that sure was enough for me. 

Thanks for a picture of your garden and the open-pollinated Amish white popcorn.  The white popcorn looks great.  ;D

I only have peppers, tomatoes and herbs in my garden now.  Will have to take a few pictures in the next few days.  I also have a big harvest of spiders.  :o

I second that, Norma! I had enough hornworms for everybody this year.

Our plot at the community garden is starting to wind down production, and I'm finally seeing some ripening of the tomatoes at home. The rain we've gotten in the past week will surely dilute the taste of the tomatoes, but we've got nothing to complain about compared to the folks who were in Isaac's path.

Hey, Norma. What other toppings go well with spiders?  :-X

Barry,

Sorry to hear you had so many hornworms this year.  :( Glad to hear you are seeing some ripening of the tomatoes at home.   ;D

Yuck, I have no idea what goes well with spiders for toppings.  :o Maybe another member can help you with ideas.  :-D
