Susan Verberg replied to Erik W's discussion Wood Ashes in the Garden and/or Compost Pile in the group Veggie Gardens
"What I have done for years now, is save the ashes in a large can over winter and add it to the dormant early spring garden to mulch it in with the winter coop / barn cleanup. Tho I did learn that ashes wash down into the earth relatively fast and…"

Susan Verberg replied to Alice Bizri's discussion Is our pressure canner supposed to do this? in the group Canning
"Just wondering, does the liquid escape during canning or when you open the lid? I found I have to let the jars cool down slowly for a while otherwise liquid comes out - now I leave the canner, untouched, with lid closed, for an hour or more to make…"

Susan Verberg replied to Jennifer Maffett's discussion Free Khaki Cambell Ducks in the group Livestock
"Hi Jen, thank you so much for the ducks and they are doing fine! They even started following the geese around, like all the ducks end up doing at some point when moving here :)   But now for something totally different: I briefly talked to your…"

Susan Verberg replied to Tim Shenk's discussion applesauce making in the group Canning
"What kind of equipment do you think you need :)   When I make apple compote, which is chunky apple sauce, I might use an apple peeler (tho a regular potato peeler works just as well) to take the skins off and a hand corer to take the core out…"

Susan Verberg replied to Sharon Berger's discussion free roosters and hens in the group Livestock
"Hi Sharon, we're still rebuilding our flock from a persistent fox this spring - homing our geese with the chickens did the trick - and could use some more laying birds... ours are freeranging too, they'd fit right in :) Susan"

Susan Verberg replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"what do you mean? it's the waterbath canner that takes so long, the pressure canner gets it done in no time... a waterbath canner can only be used for boiling bath, a pressure canner for both...   seems to me a pressure canner is more…"

Susan Verberg replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"cooled down means no more pressure, which is still real hot and opening the lid will be a bit challenging with the hot steam coming out. You can speed this by cooling the lid under cold water until the pressure gauge recedes and the lid…"

Susan Verberg replied to Jen and Sam's discussion boiling water bath water in a pressure canner? in the group Canning
"yes, you can do waterbath canning in a pressure canner as long as you buy one with weights for pressure - not a dial (I think, I never had one with a dial, maybe it unscrews). No weight on the outlet on the lid means no pressure, and the pan becomes…"

Susan Verberg replied to Alison F's discussion Sweet potato experiment? in the group Veggie Gardens
"Hi Alison, did you see the article about growing sweet potatoes in nothern climates in the last issue of mother earth news? I planted my (home grown) shoots that way, in construction plastic rows, and man, the dirt sure is warmer that way! Very…"

"probably email to the address at the top of the email or maybe directly to Tatiana Stanton tls7@cornell.edu at Cornell? Can't quite remember, but it's a good resource, there's a lot of livestock available right now - Susan"

"Should have kept an eye on the comment box - have been busy getting the gardens ready and planting :) yes, we do have geese, one breeding pair, but we either eat the eggs or have her brood them (no successful hatches as of yet, they're only two…"

Hi Susan, glad to see you! Hey, do you still have geese? I had a lady stop by yesterday interested in duck and goose eggs for her crafts. Got her number... we aren't putting duck eggs out for another couple of weeks (most in the incubator now) and we don't have geese. Let me know if you want her info.

And welcome!
