Well, my first pint of pickled peppers and onions (cowhorn and hybrid cayenne/white and red onions) did not seal when I canned it. So, it is refrigerator pickling. I am honestly thinking of pulverizing the whole mess in the blender and making hot sauce since it is basically the same thing as Tabasco pre grind right now.
That sounds like a good alternative.

how much honey are you able to harvest, and how often?
Not sure. The top 'super' is full now. All 10 of the foundations have comb on both sides and the bees have combed the foundations all together. I tried to check them last night and end up getting stung as soon as I popped the top cover off. The bees were very active. I have no clue what I'm doing so like plumbing I'll screw it up a couple times before I get it semi-right. I'll try again early tomorrow when it is cool and take some pix when I do.

Good luck. A friend of mine has a bunch of fruit trees in their yard, and have let a local honey producer set up in their field. He usually pays them with a couple jars a year.

So, my wife planted 12 tomato plants, two different varieties of cherry tomatoes and a single full sized. The plants are between 3.5 and 5.5 feet tall right now. We are about to have a tomato explosion.

That’s the thing with tomato’s, they go from “oh nice, fresh tomato’s” to “oh my god, more tomato’s” in a big hurry.
