A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Quoting Ylee:
When I was a kid, my grandmother and aunt tended 1/2 acre, and kept two large freezers full of corn and beans, plus canned enough tomatoes and juice to last all year, not to mention the 1/4 acre potato patch that almost filled a pickup truck bed!

I could never hope to match their output; I simply don't have the time or resources.

Never heard of making your own paste before; neat!


Hey making the paste is the easiest thing to do ..

just juice your tomatoes removing seeds and fill crock pot full .. turn on low and crack lid slightly to allow moisture to escape .. will thicken up usually in 24 hours .. wife spoons it out into ice cube trays where each cube is tablespoon full .. we use Roma or plum tomato's as they are meatier

don't stir while cooking down incase your pot burns the bottom a little .. and don't scrape the bottom or side of pot if it does .. it will make it all taste scorched if you do .. I have one crock pot that gets too hot and can't use it for that ..

You can season the paste or just leave it plain .. put in freezer zip lock bags .. good for 1 year in freezer if it lasts ..

Not much going on down here, wab! About 1/3 of an inch, with a little wind and thunder!

That's a lot of tomatoes, if this is going to be a good year! Do you can?


Ylee .. yes we can whole tomatos, tomato juice, and make tomato paste in the crock pot ..

plus we give them to friends and kids .. if I have an exceptional year I will just kill off a plant or two ..

This year am growing three different kinds of heirloom tomato's and they usually don't bear as heavy as the newer varieties .. but am growing them for the difference in the taste ..

When we were younger I had 2 big gardens .. 1 - 50 x 25 and the 2nd one was 25 x 40 .. and a large asparagus patch 5 x 20 .. we grew where we didn't buy any veggies most of the year ..

Was a lot of work but gardening is how I had grown up doing and have enjoyed it immensely .. a relaxation method for me ..

Saw that over 40% of the corn was planted over the last 7 days .. farmers worked well into the night almost every night .. still around 20-25% left for the corn and haven't heard of any beans being planted at least not around my area .. but still a little time to work with on beans yet ..

Well got all my garden plants planted .. just in time for the .8 inches of rain we got last night .. a lot of lightning in the storm so good nitrogen in the rain ..

Got a little sun burn out of it too .. at least my back feels like it ..

3 sweet peppers
10 tomato's
6 cantaloupe

Hope mine will do better then last year .. with the drought we hardly had any fruit from the tomato's it was so hot over 100 degrees and fruit didn't set because of it .. this year hoping it will be much better ..

Ok City area, may be one of the most dangerous places in the world in relation to severe weather !! Lived there for little over a year (Midwest City/Tinker AFB) and was always concerned with the storms there ..

Hoping we will be lucky today and only see rain .. there and through out the plains today !!

Wab, I have no idea how tall mine will get. I think it varies widely, depending on the plant, local conditions, etc. I've seen anything from 20/25 feet on up to 40 feet high. YIKES!

Cloudy here but no rain yet.


Well I guess if you let it grow we will be able to see how tall it will go .. I myself think it would be very interesting .. but could understand your concern at its height .. would depend a lot on where it is situated in the landscape !! So if you were to cut it down .. I would fully understand why ..

Hey, wab? I found something that shows me what to expect with this century plant blooming. Some fellow had one start the blooming process about this same time last year and documented it online, from start to finish.

Century Plant

It's a much longer process than I thought. His plant started in mid April and he didn't take it down until December.

I imagine you could take it down earlier but he let it dry out and that might be a good idea. I've been reading that the sap from these things gives you a rash worse than poison ivy.

And I think of all the times I've been out there in flip flops, shorts and a tank top, sawing away on lower leaves and shoots to remove them. Ignorance is bliss, huh? lol


An amazing plant or at least the bloom is .. do you think yours will attain the height that one did ??

I'll bet the farmers have been scrambling to get their corn in. I imagine they're planting mostly feed corn.

Can't wait for that first flush of sweet corn to arrive, though. My mouth waters at the thought.


Bug .. yes none of this is sweet corn .. they grow that about 40 miles down along the river along with musk melon and other melons .. several large truck farms in that area ..

Hi, wab.

There's nothing like a severe weather forecast to keep you on your toes, when planning outside chores, errands and family gatherings.

We haven't had any rain in over a week now. We might get some tomorrow and Monday.

I don't want a lot of rain but a nice shower once a week saves me from using the hosepipe on my plants.

I'd like to see how our freshly dug out drainage ditch handles a hard rain. Much better than it did before, I'm sure.


Looks like we will be in for it late tonight or sometime tomorrow .. all according to how fast it tracks to the east ..

farmers out in the fields in force the past few days .. all trying to get corn planted .. still over 50% of the ground around me untouched so far ..

THE MEDIUM RANGE MODELS BEGIN THE DAY 4 TO 8 PERIOD WITH AN
UPPER-LEVEL LOW OVER THE NRN PLAINS. THE MODELS DEEPEN THE
UPPER-LEVEL LOW AND MOVE A MID-LEVEL JET ACROSS THE SRN AND CNTRL
PLAINS ON MONDAY/DAY 4. IN RESPONSE...STRONG DEEP LAYER SHEAR SHOULD
BE PRESENT ACROSS MUCH OF THE WARM SECTOR SUGGESTING WIDESPREAD
SEVERE STORM DEVELOPMENT WILL BE POSSIBLE. WILL MAINTAIN AN ENHANCED
SEVERE THREAT AREA EXTENDING FROM CNTRL OK NEWD INTO NCNTRL MO FOR
DAY 4. ON TUESDAY/DAY 5...THE MODELS DIVERGE CONCERNING THE
UPPER-LEVEL LOW BUT ARE IN AGREEMENT THAT AN UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH WILL
MOVE ACROSS THE SRN AND CNTRL PLAINS. THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT WILL
BE POSSIBLE AHEAD OF THE UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH FROM THE MID MS VALLEY
SWWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS ON DAY 5. A CHANCE OF SEVERE STORMS WILL
PROBABLY EXIST ALONG THIS CORRIDOR DUE TO MODERATE INSTABILITY AND
SUFFICIENT DEEP LAYER SHEAR WHICH IS FORECAST BY BOTH THE ECMWF AND
GFS. ON WEDNESDAY/DAY 6...THE MODELS MOVE THE SRN PLAINS UPPER-LEVEL
TROUGH QUICKLY EWD ACROSS THE MS VALLEY. ALTHOUGH THE GFS AND ECMWF
DIFFER ON THE SPEED OF THE UPPER-LEVEL TROUGH...IT APPEARS THAT A
POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL EXIST ACROSS AN EXTENSIVE
AREA STRETCHING FROM THE NERN U.S. SWWD TO THE GULF COAST STATES AND
WWD INTO THE SRN PLAINS. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR A
WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER FOR BOTH TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY...CONFIDENCE REMAINS TOO LOW TO FORECAST AN ENHANCED
SEVERE THREAT AREA.

Hi Wabit - all set to "rock and roll", as my dad would say when I was young and we were about to leave on an adventure....
The weather could have been kinder - it is slightly misty and set to rain! I hate driving in rain on the main motorways around London, there is so much traffic the spray makes it difficult to see!!
Fingers crossed the sun comes out by lunchtime!
Have a great weekend!


Hoping you will have the great day picking up the new member of your family !! Hope it is a pleasant adventure today !!!

Hi Wabit - all set to "rock and roll", as my dad would say when I was young and we were about to leave on an adventure....
The weather could have been kinder - it is slightly misty and set to rain! I hate driving in rain on the main motorways around London, there is so much traffic the spray makes it difficult to see!!
Fingers crossed the sun comes out by lunchtime!
Have a great weekend!

No rain just yet, which allowed me to plant my garden today. My back suffered no ill effects, but I can feel it in my shoulders, and arms! :' )
