Blair Eckman replied to Emily Landseidel's discussion 'Vining tomatoes horizontally, thoughts and experiences?'
"I can't imagine why it wouldn't work.  Tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes are resilient plants.   My only worry is that the plants above would shade out the plants below.  "

"I love these discussions.  When I read the chapter the first time, I felt the stark black/white contrast as more of a pre-apocalyptic, doom and gloom, we're all going to perish if we don't take immediate action.   Reading…"

Macaroni&Cheese with a twist

Cross-posted from my blog  http://misplacedhomesteader.blogspot.com/

 

I love macaroni and cheese.  But really, who doesn’t?  Well, except if you’re lactose intolerant, or vegan, or gluten free, or just don’t like cheese…

Hi, Blair. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here (site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content). I’m so glad you found us and the Perma-Curious group—and I’m even gladder (er, more glad?) to see you’re already making your way around the site. Rad. Please don’t be shy about sharing the recipe for your curried cauliflower soup. That sounds DELICIOUS. One place to do so is in our member blog, The Stew—or maybe in the HOMEGROWN Cookin’ group, which it looks like you’ve joined (HOORAY!). Elsewhere on the site, you can always find the latest additions at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
