Ground hog, just another name for sausage.

    Hoping for early spring...as long as it doesn't mean a wicked hot summer...

  2. ERJ, just for the record, as my son the part time butcher explained, ground hog, er ground pork is NOT the same as sausage. Sausage has a much higher fat content, as well as savory spices.
    Ground pork is a REALLY YUGE thing in Indiana. Ground hog is something that injures cattle. Love your play on words. Peace.

    1. Hi Milton:

      Glad to see you are still out there.

      Finding anything interesting in seed catalogs?

  3. Joe,
    Nothing interesting in the seed catalogs, buuut- I became convinced at MIGARDENER.COM to try growing onions from seed. I picked up some yellow sweet spanish, white sweet spanish and ruby red long day onion seed. Have a flat of the ruby red started, others to follow shortly.

    Remus, over at woodpile report, convinced me to try growing tobacco as well. I have a flat of virgina gold started. Tedious work picking those tiny seeds with a tweezer, to get a flat started. Had to use the high powered reading glasses and an additional table lamp. Like my 101 year old neighbor advised- don't get old!

    Peace.

    1. Here are a couple of older posts that have some pictures and text about tobacco in Michigan: http://eatonrapidsjoe.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-few-pictures.html

      I was growing Tennessee 90. I let it flower because I wanted some seeds. If I was serious about growing leaf I would have topped out the flower spikes.

      Best regards,

  4. Joe,
    I have also been pleased with the heirloom products from patriot supply, here in Indiana. So I will be starting their tomato and cabbage directly.
