Then my elderly mom said that my brother gets as much as he wants...from my garden. So I gave my garden to ... her. I'll still have to work it of course. Family is great?
My sister's significant other has an incredible green thumb. He grows a huge garden on ground that lies beside a river. His garden is the biggest I've ever seen, and his cabbage is much better than anything I could grow. So, I offer to purchase his cabbage plants in return for enough cabbage to make saurkraut. When it's made, I give him as many jars as he wants. This cooperative effort benefits us all. I don't know if you've ever heard of Nantahala cabbage....they're HUGE and very white. Three of them will chop into a gallon of kraut.
That sounds good. As opposed to the Jack LaLanne juicer I bought last week. The commercials make it look super efficient.
I used about 8 pounds of apples to make about 2 1/2 qts of apple juice. There was a tremendous amount of ground up pulp....inside of the machine. The motor doesn't seem too strong either...it won't turn if apple slices are pressing against the blade. The machine also has to be completely disassembled for a proper cleaning.
I seriously considered taking it back. But there are times when a juicer could be handy.
I'm a fan of LaLanne....but his juicer isn't all that. It is much, much cheaper to simply buy juice from the looks of things.
As for mom....she used to be the calmest person you could imagine. Hormones change with age. She is rightfully freaked out by the fact that I've been under surveillance for.....eleven years now. That would freak out any mom. It pretty well crushed my life as well. My oldest friend witnessed one act of my surveillance and was completely freaked out. I told him that he couldn't handle two weeks of my life. He quickly agreed.
I was told it was for "my protection." The "ex"-agent who ran the light and fractured my hip ruined that illusion. There were just too many "coincidences". Along with multiple threats and insinuations. Do not kid yourself. Agents are bullies.
Don't go to shrinks....even for a session. Friends don't let friends go to shrinks. That is what got it all started. I turned down the 2000 offer that "justified" the surveillance. The surveillance never ended. Can't find an attorney that wants the case either.
Don't tell me that it isn't a surveillance society that has become a beginning/intermediate police state. The beauty of this board is that the people are bright enough to recognize reality and it is too small to be swarming with...thought police/agents.
