    The M-80 had a center fuse, was usually colored red, and had an original military use. There evolved "civilian versions" of the M-80. An ash can had a fuse at the end of the cylinder and was always silver or gray-colored, in my experience. It's often called "the civilian version" of the military M-80. I don't recall any difference in how much we feared one or the other, LOL. [

    Never heard of that name. It looked like an M80 though which could break a window if close enough.

    Tessica probably shouldn't have used Gorilla Glue. I think it's the squirrels. People love those things.

    Model cars, model airplanes? I enjoyed making a model tank with my dad when I was young. He didn't appreciate that I put it through a real war scenario after we finished. One strategically placed Black Cat in the cockpit was all she wrote.

    I'm probably not going to put too much work into any non-portable modifications to the garden this year. We're starting to kick around the idea of moving to a place that is only 1 story (my wife is starting to have a difficult time with stairs) and is a little more semi-rural so we can have a little bit of land (and I do mean little, as in somewhere between 1/2 to 1 acre). That way I can have as big a garden as I can handle, she can start the dog rescue activity that she wants to take up when she retires next year and...if I play my cards right...have a place to keep a boat.

    Do post up your results as I'm always in the learning mode. Going to do potatoes this year in grow bags. My sister did it and raved about it so will try it. It will eliminate the need to dig and the mess involved and also free up some garden real estate. Will need to water consistently though.

    My main goal was really just to avoid having to take an immersion blender to the sauce after cooking it, with the elimination of the seeds (with their slightly bitter tannins) and skins as a secondary benefit. But we'll see how it works out for me. I still have some of the sauce from my last batch in the freezer. Once that's used up I'll probably buy some Romas from the store and try them out before I have anything from the garden ready.

    I have that same attachment. I bought it two years ago for my salsa making. What I found out was feeding the tomatoes into it just gummed it up (screens). My solution was just to take the tomatoes out of the freezer and within 5 minutes of ambient temperature, the skins slipped off easily. I then started using it again thinking I could remove all the seeds. Again, it seemed to be gumming up the works. So made salsa without removing the seeds. 1. I found that the over-attention to seed removal is unjustified. I don't even notice the seeds. 2. Romas are very fleshy tomatoes and so I was removing a lot of the meat with the juicer. 3. I think the juicer would work well for other varieties of tomatoes, maybe not Romas. I would be interested in your findings. I might have been doing it wrong. It's a great unit though.

    Ah, cool. Thanks! I need more plum tomato variety plants this year. We were so pleased with the Italian tomato sauce I made with last season's harvest that my wife gave me this LEM grinder juicer attachment for my birthday. I've seen quite a few videos of people using it for that very purpose and singing it's praises, so I'm looking forward to trying it out.

    Decided to try something different this year. I planted 60 Roma seeds last week in these milk jugs. The milk jugs have been cut so that they flap back like a clamshell. Holes have been created below (drainage) and above (transpiration). I put four seeds per jug which was not an easy thing to do as I had to use tweazers. Certain seeds actually benefit by having cold periods. My thought is that when soil temperatures are suitable the seed will germinate and be in its own little greenhouse. They will grow until frost free danger is over (around May 6) and then transplanted. There are other things planted in the jugs (spinach, brocolli, brussel sprouts and perennials). I figured it was worth the experiment. I'm out 4.68 if it doesn't work and will still have time to purchase plants from the nursery. I hate my grow light - produces leggy and non-hardy plants.

    Personally, I'd let the squirrels have their fill and fatten them up. They taste better. That's probably not the help you were looking for. Someone always has to go back and get a shitload of dimes.

    I don't have anything against squirrels and they bathe in my bird bath without incident but the time and expense of feeding corn should go to the deer. Note, I don't mow over the hedge balls and stack them into nice piles so they have winter food. So you see, I'm not all bad.

    There used to be a set-up with a five-gallon bucket and a rod or dowel that ran through the bottom that if jostled would release some corn. I'm sure there were homemade as well as commercial versions. If you ran that dangling from a beam or limb with a conical squirrel guard above the bucket, I think that would be about the best you could do. But again .... Why are you so mean to squirrels?

    I have several deer feeders in my yard. They're just pvc pipes with elbows that hang from a tree. The problem is squirrels jump up and sit on the elbow and eat the corn. Is there some sort of on-demand system that could remove the squirrels from the equation? I don't want a big commercial feeder that is on a timer. What I have now is not noticeable and requires no energy. Any thoughts? The only thing I can think of is removing the elbow so it is a straight pipe, then having some sort of grating on the bottom of the pipe and a rope that dangles. When bumped it jostles the corn so it drops through the grating. I just think squirrels are going to figure that out. btw, I've already thought of the .22 solution.
