great! I’ve got one in the basement, for about six months now (it stays about the same temperature year round), but it hasn’t lost much weight and is still on the squishy side.
my plan is to leave it alone until it has lost 1/3 to 1/2 of its weight. i am really curious, how you will tell if it is done, if there is some objective criteria you are using, ie, not just “ask fred”? it is okay if you want to answer in your column.
I always have a problem with pea weevils with all peas, and with shelling peas it is the worst. After reading this I am thinking maybe I plant them too late and leave them on the vine too long. But I still want to wait a few years before trying again. Any tips for dealing with these little fellers?
Interestingly, my browser calls out Zester Daily as malware - is Zester poisoning my computer, or has it just been labeled that way as part of this food culture battle?
I think it is always healthy to pick apart Michael Pollan - at least it shows you are reading carefully.
Our neighbor’s tree starts dropping apples on our garage in early August, but we had no idea what variety they were. To save cleaning up the mess later, we went and picked pounds and pounds of them this year, and they are just as you describe - sweet, tart, and aromatic. The tree is at least 60 years old and produces an amazing crop about every other year. Thanks for the wisdom!
