    Beef tongue

    There is a little taco joint by my house up here in KC... Best thing on the menu is the beef tongue taco. Some finely minced onions and cilantro, on 2 warm soft corn tortillas... Bombass piece of food... and cheap!

    2018 Garden Thread

    I'm not far from this. Still watering my stuff out at the farm, but after everything took a toll on plants this year it was just a losing battle. Fertilizing, watering, pruning, and still losing plants? That soil just needs some real time away from tomatoes and peppers. May put something else in there next year that's a bit easier. Probably plant some corn and okra, may make a few soil mounds for cukes and zukes. Going to put in a couple more raised beds at my house when I get a tree removed and move a lot of my stuff home hopefully.

    My peppers are really struggling. The plants never really seemed to take off. Almost as if my ones out at the farm are getting too much light. They are only a foot to two foot tall, and super dense with leaves. Where as my more shaded pepper plants are full and 3 to 5 feet tall at my house and setting peppers pretty well as opposed to my farm peppers. It's an interesting year, and I think unless you can devote a lot of time to it like the Billet it's going to be rough for ya.

    Tomatoes are slow for me. The dang heat, and I'm still doing a ton of watering. Fighting a little bit of blossom end rot, and turkey predation on them. Stink bugs are sticking holes and rotting a few also pretty bad, anyone got a recommendation for those little nasty things? However the real issue, what is causing me to throw out more tomatoes than I'm actually getting are over ripening on the bottom and rotting while the top is still unripe, green and hard as a rock. I've probably brought in 30 tomatoes, and pitched 100 out so far this season. Best tomato this season was the first ripe one I had on July 8th, a full hand size ananas noire, took one slice for a BLT!

    Arkansas River Trout?

    At least the sections I fished last year there was no bait. That could be different though than where I was in the headwaters and down in the gorge and browns.

    They are literally all over my baseball fields at work. all. year. long. Just find a nice dirt patch and you'll always have them around.

    Billet I'm a bit north of you up in KC and I've got a ton set, getting ready to ripen. I was getting tomatoes that would ripen all the way until halloween last year. I lost a few of my tomatoes this year, but so far about 40 of the 48 I got out and alive are setting fruit like crazy. Peppers are taking a bit longer but the jalapenos and anaheims are starting to set a bunch. Poblanos, cubanelles, and california wonders are taking a bit longer. It's interesting, the plants at home are tall, little lanky, but fairly full. The plants out at the garden are about half the height, but about 4 times the number of leaves. Definitely better sun at the farm than at home so I think that's what's helping. I'm sure I'm going to get hit with a bumper crop all at once, but I'll figure out something to do with it all. Though, the watering is about to kill me. 140-160 gallons of water 4 to 5 times a week all carried in five gallon buckets makes for some

    Bears

    A few years ago when we were in yellowstone we watched a big black bear boar enter the river on the upstream side of a hill. Thinking we'd see it walk out on the other side were thought something happened to it. Not long later we see it floating down the middle of the river doing barrel rolls, flips, and generally just floating down the river on his back enjoying hisself a nice float trip. Watched two other grizzlies swim that section as well. I'd say it's not just polar bears that enjoy swimming. The article about the one that drowned said that's normal for a drowned bear to have blood coming out of nose and mouth. I don't know why that would be, but I'd venture to guess there are some anatomical differences between how bears and people drown. I'm super excited they are coming back, it'll take time for people to get used to them though. All the drunk float trippers are going to be the first ones to have issues, though I don't know why people don't put their crap up any way, the coons are just as ridiculous and a lot more plentiful than the black bears are.

    Well everything is going well with the garden so far. Lost a plant or two, and a few are looking a little puny, but everything is thriving for the most part. Biggest tom so far is a black krim that has a circumference about the same as a baseball now. Hopefully I'll be eating fresh tomatoes on the 4th.

    learning to fly fish.....questions

    Yes they do. The knob opposite the side you are cranking on. The reel handle will spin when line is being pulled. Trout won't bust your knuckles. Carp will.

    learning to fly fish.....questions

    For Taney I only drop to 7 x in real clear and low, or fishing midges just to get the line through the eye. Depending on the fly type kind of varies whether or not I leave a long tag end and tie the dropper to the lead fly that way, or down off of the bend. On a real gradual round hook like a scud I like the tag end just because I feel like the bend is so gradual, I don't want the dropper line effecting the hook up ratio on the lead fly. That's my reasoning and I'm sticking to it. You can't change my mind.. kidding, but that's just how I started doing it, and have done it since. For leader my standard trout leader is a 7.5 foot 5X leader, then I usually drop anywhere from 2 to 6 foot of tippet off the end of that. Building them is easy too, and I prefer a blood not vs whatever it's called that other people do. (I just like the blood knot) Easy things for Taney are things like eggs, 14 and 16 gray, and olive scuds, small midges and pheasant tails are hard to beat. For a new guy try some leeches out too and let those swing in the current. Find a seam, and just let that fly finish right at the edge or pass through it and hold on. The advice I've always given, that always gets a punch in the arm from when I taught my wife to cast.. Just let the rod do the work.

    What's Cooking?

    Billet I started a few different peppers this year.... Just for the long game. Doing scotch bonnets for end result real Jamaican jerk seasoning. Doing extra jalapenos to ripen, smoke, and can in adobo sauce, and poblanos to ripen and dry for anchos. And after you talked so much about them, doing a ton of cubanelles mostly for Chile rellenos!
