This or That

I enjoy homemade tomato sauce, however, I will admit that I buy most of it.... :oops:

It's hard to beat a good sale and I generally buy extra at those times.


Preserve your own frozen vegetables or buy frozen vegetables from the grocery store?

[/quote]

We used to freeze and can everything: pickles and relishes, veggies and fruits from our own trees and garden, but not anymore. It isn't that we don't want to, we just don't a have big family anymore.

Do you::::

Eat fresh fruits and veggies in-season in your area, and canned or frozen in the off-seasons.

--or--

Get whatever you want as the long as the stores have it, no matter what it is.

Now, I must admit I do not eat as many fruits and veggies as I should...... :oops: ...I know, I need to change that bad habit. Why does chocolate taste so much better than any fruit or vegetable.... :shock:


Even though our diet should consist of both, do you prefer fruits or vegetables?

Wow, Jim, you don't make this easy for a person! :wink: :lol:

Since I [b][i]have[/i][/b] to choose (that's the point of the game), I'll choose ... tree-ripe crunchy fruits, like Apples.

Okay, now it's my turn...since it's late (for me) and I need to go to bed pretty soon, I'll make this easy (on myself :wink: )

My daughter uses chocolate chips in her [b]Pumpkin Muffins [/b]and her [b]Black Bottom Cupcakes.[/b]

Those Black Bottom Cupcakes are sooooooooooooooo good. They are essentially a Black Forest chocolate cupcake with cheese-cake centers, wherein the cheese-cake filling is loaded with those little mini-choco chips. That is a recipe worthy of note. I'll just have to post it. [i] ((((Do you notice how I always gravitate to topics about chocolate desserts. :lol: :lol: :lol: ))))[/i]

My wife uses raisins in her bran muffins.

Do you prefer::::::::

A coffee cake with cinnamon and brown sugar swirled through it,

--or--

A peach (or pineapple) upside down cake.

Rake the grass clippings off your lawn with a rake or sweep the lawn using a pull behind your lawn tractor, lawn sweeper?


[i]Can you tell that I am on my way out the door to sweep our lawn with our pull behind lawn sweeper... :wink: [/i]

[i]BTW Jim, I like how your thoughts turn to chocolate....I am right there with ya!! :lol: [/i]

I much prefer the pull behind sweeper, because it saves a lot of time.[i] (my front lawn is huge) [/i] However raking the grass clippings into windrows, then gathering them up into my humongous trailer is actually therapeutic. It's good exercise, too. :D :mrgreen:


Mowing your lawn on your rider::::

Do you enjoy it???

--or--

would you much rather be doing something else???

I don't mind mowing the lawn using our garden tractor.....it is much faster than using a push mower on our acre size yard. I enjoy this time spent outdoors!!


Do you prefer to work indoors doing housework or work outdoors doing yardwork?

Hehehhehehe, My wife and I both much prefer outside yardwork to inside cleaning. :D :D :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

For your yardwork, do you prefer::::

Springtime prep work for the growing season? I.E. gathering out the dead branches that have fallen on the yard, pruning the flowering bushes, working the soil for annuals to be planted, covering the ground around the perennials with mulch, etc.

--OR--

Fall cleanup work to prepare for wintertime.

My own preference is prepping the engines and other machines for spring and summer usage.

[b]Dried Flowers [/b][i](that my wife arranges :wink: )[/i]

Whilst working your flower beds, do you use...

... mulch (oak bark, Michigan Peat, or other organic material)?

--or--

...only clean cultivation?

When working up the soil do you use a gas rototiller or by hand using a shovel?
[/quote]

Our flower beds have perennials mixed in where I want to plant annuals, so I just use a four-prong scratcher on a long handle. It looks like a garden rake with only four prongs.

When you plant your flowers, do you use:::

...a chemical root stimulator?

--or--

...just organic compost and let nature work?

We just keep putting on more natural compost, as the old stuff keeps decaying into the soil.

Do you keep a compost pile for table scraps, crop residues, weeds from the weeding sessions, leaves, etc.

--or--

just throw those things in your woods to feed the little fellas that live there. :wink:

Oh boy oh boy oh boy, do I ever enjoy farm fresh eggs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We get great big (JUMBO) brown eggs at a local [i]one-horse[/i] farmer's market and they are almost as fresh as gathering them myself.

We used to have fruit trees (31) and [b]had[/b] ([i]past tense[/i] :wink: ) fruit like there wasn't even no tomorrow. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
