  11. Bush versus pole beans

    This year I'm going to plant pole green beans. I've heard they take up less room. They are also easier to pick. I hate bending over the bushes of beans to pick them, it's a back breaker. Anyone try pole beans?
  12. Gardening and soil

    I had this problem once. I think it's called blight or blithe? Try turning your soil, it should help. Also don't water during the hottest part of the day. I do like the idea of using buckets though. I'm going to look into that.

  17. Recipes Brocolli cheese soup help

    I used mild and sharp cheddar. I cubed it (was a block of cheese). I'm thinking maybe I should have shredded it. I used heavy cream and chicken stock. I tried to follow a low-carb recipe. It really was a disaster!
  18. Tractors Any tractors you can still work on?

    I own many Farmall H tractors. I can fix them all. I don't try to work on my newer International ones. I think you're right, tractors are like vehicles now. You've got to go to the dealership to work on your car now too. Technology!

    So I told my wife I'd make this soup. It turned out as a flop! The cheese wouldn't melt, it literally clumped! Anyone have a tried and true recipe and hints on how to melt cheese!
