I have learned so much from Mr. Donald and the Forum.  I am very appreciative of him and many others like him that take time from their days to show other people how they do things.  Over their years of trial and error many lessons have been learned and better ways are found.  Thanks you all that enjoy sharing that knowledge with me and anyone else that would like to know of your experiences.  In the last five years, I have gone from a complete novice to having a pretty decent garden.  I still have a loooong way to go to be as good as you guys. 

By watching Mr Donald’s videos, he has saved my back by using the crop netting with Pole bean -  below are a couple of picks with my version of them.  TPPHPs were a first for me this year and will be every year from now on.  Anytime I want to try something new, the first 2 places I go are the WebCajun channel on you tube and then this forum and search both.  I’ve planted my first ever beets a couple of weeks ago with some valuable information and am looking forward to trying them and putting some up.

Next year, I plan to not be hardheaded and side dress my tomatoes and add some copper spray so they are more healthy productive plants.

Tangentalstorm – thank you for your service!
 

Wow what a nice fence system to keep the deer out and other big animals... Is it electric style ??

I assume it is with the insulators ~!~!

I once belonged to the largest garden website on the net.  But, things went woefully wrong over there, and it is now only a hollow shell of what it once was.

The thing I don't miss about that website, is the unnecessary competition I encountered.  Over here, there are praises for whatever a gardener accomplishes.  And, no one is ashamed to admit, show, or share their failures, as well as their successes.  No one puts you down for what you don't know, or chides you for how much you may know.  It's a really welcoming, inviting environment here.

I attribute that to Donald, and how he hovers like a (sort of) mother hen.  When things get feisty, he's right there to put it in check.  If you're wrong about something, he'll be quick to correct you, and, more importantly, back it up with the facts.  And, I trust him to be fair.  Never have I seen Donald do a call-out that was unnecessary.  He is fair.

Finally, there're those wonderful videos that I find myself watching over and over!!! Reviewing.  Learning.  Just plain admiring all that he has accomplished, working his own place almost  singlehandedly. 

It has been a pure joy belonging to the Webcajun family!

Thank you, Donald!  :-*

i am with you and mrs. jewel.  i have had and enjoyed quiche...but if there are other options on the menu it would not be my first choice.

as most folks on here know...i don't eat pork.  i had a bad pork experience many years ago and have not had any sort of pork in 20+ years.  yes, that includes bacon.  *gasp*   

i am sorry to report i would not be much of a cajun.  i am admittedly a fussy eater.  too many things to list on here.

hub will eat pretty much anything, but he HATES coconut.  he won't eat it. period.
my older daughter does not like bananas. the weird part is she will eat banana bread if i make it, but just not the actual banana. 
my little will try/eat most things if encouraged, but generally won't eat red meat.  i think that is more of a texture thing and she may grow out of it.

one time Jewel called the office & left word for me not to be late because one of her tennis friends was having a quiche dinner for the group & husbands. The message was relayed to me by the parts man and I asked, "what is quiche, damned if I know he said ask Mary Lou she took the call. She had just left so the first thing I asked Jewel when I got home, "what's this we're going to". Jewel didn't really know but said the tennis bunch was always talking about it. We ate it and had a good time with everybody, on the way home I told Jewel that it was pretty good but nothing I'd go out of my way for. She agreed, I don't know if she ever ate any more but I haven't.

I'm not a fan of fennel seed in sausage but will allow just a few in my spaghetti sauce but only a few. I dislike cinnamon on  baked carrots - but ok on sweet taters.  Buttermilk  by the glass= blek ( ask me how I know) but ok in making biscuits. Currants --I just can't handle them...
