I like the "Beefsteak" variety. It's a big old mater that's irregular but shore is juicy and good. I'm gonna put out some more plants next week. Might try some of those celebritys.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

What I like to do is,plant the newest variety every year and "celebrity".When I find one that is better than celebrity,then that becomes my favorite and keep planting the newer ones till that one is bumped,I do the same thing with these cane type grasses,I have tried a lot of tomatoes and that "celebrity"has'nt been bumped yet...........good luck

You must get a lot of growth with the cow poop - do you prune them back or let them grow out?

Our tomatoes are just blooming. We plant our sweet corn with our sunflowers so the coons don't find it.. Man I'm tired...... What is it about turning out bulls that is soooo stressful?

It's the "Male" factor. Any time you move a bunch of bulls they start fighting, etc. If you take one out of the bull pasture for a few days and put him back in, they all gang up on him. They act just like teenage boys. I've got some 18 month olds behind my house that fight every afternoon while we are sitting on the back porch. Guess they think they are puttin on a show for us.

I hear you :!: we tested last week and bringing 30 big bulls into the corral is worrisome. we managed to get them split up , tested and moved back to pasture with out a wreck. Glad to be done that now we just have to turn them out.

Out of 11, we had only one that was high headed. And we put him in a pasture where he won't be getting in to the neighboors. Our herefords were the quietest. Of coarse you would have to be an idiot to mess with them. Gentle giants. Mike, eat a cucumber for me!!!! And Big Muddy be careful. AIing this morning I had a cow try and jump out of the chute, That was interresting. Real gentle cow, just I guess wanted out. I'm sure I stretched her cervex. I had a pretty good grip on her. :D :D Someday I'm going to write a book.
Oh yeah, my hubby fell into the truck last night and banged his leg up pretty good. We were unloading fertilizer to spread on the corn. He always climbs up on the rim of the hoppers and walks around. Well he fell into the hopper. All I could think of was how and the heck was I going to get him out!!! Stuff him out through the bottom with the fertilizer or get the pay loader and get him out that way. He crawled out and walked aroung in a daze. I got him to the house and got him iced down, He's better today.

Coons and sweet corn, eh?

Well, we fixed them here. Our corn patch is right by the house and they would still get into it, so I just strung a strand of electric fence around it about 6" off the ground.

Boy oh boy, I would have liked to have seen the first time they found that wire with their nose!

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Do the coon hunters on here get a premium for skins with really curly fur?

:lol:
