    Pruning Tomatoes For Maximum Yield

    Great article, thanks for submitting. One suggestion. Early in the article you make the statement that 30 to 40 days before the first frost, trim off all buds so the plants can use their full energy to finish the established fruits. This is true with one exception. There are those of us that love to make Green Tomato Chow-Chow. With the green tomatoes off just 3 or 4 plants, picked just before the first frost, you can make and can enough chow-chow to last you all through the winter. For those not familiar with Green Tomato Chow-Chow, it's just like sweet or dill pickle relish, depending on the recipe. It's just like the stuff some of us put on hot-dogs and other sandwiches. Enjoy.

    Homebrew Glove Box

    petey_c is spot on with his questions !!! We've been brewing for over 10 years and never experienced this. We've never even have sediment in our bottles even once. Between in-bottle carbonation gone wild, and needing to protect your family and friends from spewing beer, I think someone needs to turn in his man-card until he figures this out. LOL Thanks for the chuckle, cutest post on Instructables in a long time. Sorry if my assumption that this a comedy posting was not accurate.

    Dear Technoclave, I'm glad you understood I was just giving you a hard time. My wife and I have brewed up some "mistakes" ourselves over the years. With the cost of the ingredients, we stick strictly with the recipe, even then we'll serve up a stinker every now and then. I think the freshness of the yeast and hops has a lot to do with it. We're to the point where we have found our favorites and that's all we brew now. Nothing wrong with experimenting, I guess we're just old and boring. LOL

    Build a wooden fence and gate

    Here's something that helps with keeping everything all lined up nice and straight. When installing a fence this short, it's fairly easy to get a perfect strait top finish with a string guide. With longer runs, we call this "chasing the string." With just a little wind, a slight bump, or not noticing that the string got caught on a picket, and suddenly you have a very uneven top. Simple solution, a three board jig. The hardest part of the jig is finding a straight board at your local lumber yard. Take two short boards and temporarily screw them in to the posts with the long board resting on top of two pickets that have been adjusted to the height of the fence you desire. One upright on each post. Then when all the pickets have been installed in that section, just unscre...

Simple solution, a three board jig. The hardest part of the jig is finding a straight board at your local lumber yard. Take two short boards and temporarily screw them in to the posts with the long board resting on top of two pickets that have been adjusted to the height of the fence you desire. One upright on each post. Then when all the pickets have been installed in that section, just unscrew the uprights and move them down to the next section. Think in terms of a wooden goal post or an H. I've installed hundreds of feet of wooden fence over the years and I always receive a lot of compliments about the straightness and perfect top lines of my projects. I hope this helps someone.
