Fernie,

We used tomato cages this year and they were useless. As soon as the plants get big enough they just fall over. Are you putting string or rope between the steel posts?

Trish, I am so bummed about losing almost all the tomatoes. I think we will use landscaping fabric AND mulch next year. Double protection! Meanwhile, I am going to learn lots of ways to use green tomatoes.

Thank you, Blair! I had never heard about this process, but it seems extremely easy. We would probably do one half of our garden one year and the other half the next year. Thank you!

Hi Rachel, thanks for catching that. I will make the changes now. You should be good, it is only 1/4 milk. Let me know how it turns out. This is one of my favorite breakfast “cakes.”

Rebecca,

I would be in heaven with a steam injection oven. Of course, I would be eating cheesecake morning, noon and night!
