do you know your weeds

This has several pictures of each weed. They are divided into broadleaf and grasses and also by where they are found.

Thanks for the link, Helen. I looked some up and it seems the Weed World is well-represented in my yard. lol I put the post in my clippings file.

RE: do you know your weeds

Here is another thing for reference that I thought was useful. I picked all my green tomatoes so I have tomatoes everywhere. I don't think their taste has been as good since the cool nights and rain. If the green tomatoes rot I haven't lost anything. I like green tomato relish but have never made any.

RE: do you know your weeds

Helen, I wouldn't have room in my house for all the green ones--I'd estimate3 or 4 bushels of green tomatoes. I only picked the ones I hoped would turn

RE: do you know your weeds

Do you make anything out of them? I may try some fried green tomatoes but last time I tried I didn't like them - may not have done it correctly. I didn't really pick all my green tomatoes just the bigger ones. I was in a hurry and some have cracks and flaws.

RE: do you know your weeds

Bacon greeeeze, Helen. Lots of that for fried green tomatoes. Or ---

2# green tomatoes, cored and cut into 1" pieces
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c distilled white vinegar
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp lemon juice

Bring toms, sugar, vinegar, coriander seeds, salt and pepper flakes to simmer in medium saucepan.. Cook about 40 minutes, until thickened. Cool to room temp., about 2 hours or refrigerate overnight. Stir in lemon juice just before serving with pork. (I'm using this on slow cooked pork shouder tomorrow). Makes about 2 cups
From Cook's Illustrated cookbook

Sorry -- I realize this is off-topic. But it was a coincidence, Helen.

RE: do you know your weeds

Sounds good. I happen to have some bacon for fried green tomatoes but no pork for your recipe at this time. I got a cheapo mandolin (finger slicer) at Wal Mart because I was too cheap to order the nice one from Amazon. I think I will have some fried potatoes for a snack because you made me hungry talking about bacon grease. I'll tackle the green tomatoes tomorrow.

This thread is not on one topic and I'm the one who did that. In my mind it is all one thing - end of season issues.

The only thing I have growing now is lettuce. The tomato vines need to be pulled up and piled somewhere and the grass and weeds that I couldn't pull because tomatoes are brittle plants need to also be dug out. There is no pressure to do anything now. Fall is supposed to look like this.
