What happens when you drink plenty of celery juice

in Celery

https://attunehealth.com/i-drank-celery-juice-everyday-for-30-days-heres-what-happened/ I thought this article was worth remembering. It talks about the potential benefits of celery juice (it talks a lot about it). Then it goes on to talk about the writer's experiment in drinking celery juice...read more

Capsaicin and collagen!

in Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, apparently, capsaicin inhibits collagen fiber formation, but it improves the fibers at the same time. This could be very interesting information for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (some people who have some symptoms but lack others might benefit from capsaicin, and some people should prob...read more

Anti-companion plants for muskmelons

in Muskmelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Don't plant squash next to muskmelons, unless you want squash bugs eating your melons, too. I've had it happen twice, including this year with a squash that I previously though squash bugs didn't like much. (But, apparently, they'll eat it if they don't have anything else nearby.) Anyway, the...read more

Saving seeds from BER watermelons

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, in 2017, I grew a Carolina Cross #183 watermelon plant (probably a cross of one, though, since it was from seeds I saved in 2016). Anyway, it started getting a nice-sized fruit, but it got BER. I saved the seeds, and wanted to find out if seeds from BER fruits were more or less likely to get...read more

Multiple cherry tomato taste test

in Domestic Tomato
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
I just had a relative taste test several cherry tomatoes: Isis Candy, Eva, Brown Berry, Esterina F1, and Austin's Black Cherry. She liked Eva, and Esterina F1 the most. From my own taste test of those (not today), I liked Eva and Austin's Black Cherry the most. It looks like we agree on Eva; ...read more

First full batch of dehydrated tomatoes, 2020

in Lycopersicon
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, I dehydrated these tomatoes last night (and today): And we got this result: I had them on 167 for about 5 hours, and 145 the rest of the time. Different temperatures would assuredly get different flavors. Most of them seem to taste like tomato soup with a zing and a little swee...read more

Dehydrating apricots

by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
A sibling of mine harvested 12.5 gallons of apricots for us. We've got 2.5 gallons of them (sans waste and a few eaten ones) in the dehydrator right now, in halves (cut portion facing up), at 145° F. on the silicone mesh mats (except for the top tray which is just the chrome-plated stainless ste...read more

Dehydrating cucumbers

in Cucumber
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
We've been getting a lot of cucumbers, this year (they're all Spacemaster, unless you count West India burr gherkins as cucumbers). Anyway, we decided to dehydrate a batch of them (six 15" x 13" trays)! They smell just like the dehydrated watermelon. They're resting on silicone mesh...read more

Mineral supplementation via fruiting crops

in Burr Gherkin
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
West India burr gherkins are easy to grow. They fruit fairly early, prolifically, often, and all season. They're refreshing to eat. They can have an excellent shelf life. They have edible seeds within. I'm thinking they're a good candidate for a crop to use to help supplement minerals in peop...read more

How wonderberries go with other foods

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Wonderberries go excellently with ham. They add a nice zesty flavor. If I eat a few right before I bite into some ham, it also enhances the flavor of that ham. Wonderberries go well with tomatoes. Combined with tomatoes, they're great cooked in frittatas, and on pizza; they're less remarkable...read more

Spacemaster cucumber

in Cucumber
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
We're growing Spacemaster cucumbers, this year. They're doing phenomenally well, especially considering that they're in soil that is probably kind of salty (due to being right next to a driveway that is salted in the winter). I don't know if they just like the year, or if it's an especially good...read more

Garden strawberries multiply?

in Garden Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, I thought garden strawberries just multiplied by runners, or seed. But my plants (which were initially just one plant in each spot) now look like clumps of many plants. I wonder if they'll produce if I split them up. I wonder if they'll all stop producing at the same time, or if splitting th...read more

First ripe tomato, 2020; ripening order

We got our first ripe tomatoes, today. There were three altogether: one from the Galapagos Island plant from a seed from a fruit with 5 locules, and the other two were from the Galapagos Island tomato from seeds from fruits that had withstood several hard freezes. I gave the fruits to someone...read more

Dehydrating watermelon

in Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
We were gifted a seedless watermelon recently (probably about 20lbs in weight). I cut it open and we ate about a slice of it altogether. Then I cut up the rest and started dehydrating it. Yes, the dehydrator fits about a whole store-bought seedless watermelon, although with thinner slices, maybe...read more

Dehydrating Red-seeded Citron watermelon

in Citron Watermelon
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
Our Red-seeded Citron watermelons that we harvested last year aren't getting any younger. So, I decided to cut the two largest ones up, season them like I do for citron watermelon crisp, and dehydrate them! :) Yes, seeding those watermelons took a nice duration to do. I figure they can pro...read more

Tip: Freeze alpine strawberries for a more substantial snack

in Alpine Strawberry
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Alpine strawberries, as you may or may not know, are small. Tasty, prolific, and easy-to-grow, but small (usually; sometimes some bigger ones appear). It takes about two seconds to eat an entire handful. So, I figured I'd freeze them to make them take longer to eat, and make a bigger impact i...read more
