Four varieties on the drying rack. They will stay there until the tops dry up, about a week.

I can see from the photos that the bud lime season is over, are the coke limes just coming in then?

Curing is not an exact science... So it's not a sin to bin.

Great hams, from little acorns grow...

Obviously a "late" variety, Dave! :lol: Big Guy must have picked the early's and mid-season varieties.
Cheers,


Mike

I plant a row of sunflowers on each ride of my corn. This acts as a wind break, (very windy here) it also seems to almost eliminate corn borers in the corn , they like the sunflowers more. And the sunflowers attract birds who eat the seeds.
