Wow!  What a beautiful tool shed.

Here is a chicken wire tool shed, but it could be a place where you grow vulnerable things.

Randy, my friends in Buffalo, Wyoming, where I-90 intersects with I-25, a very wilderness area, built a frame garage and instead of siding they covered it all around and over the top with chicken wire. That is where they grow their fruits, vegetables and flowers. 

I tried to find a stock photo of one, and here is what I got when I Googled "chicken wire covered building to grow a garden"

Good luck!

Randall Smith, why don't you plant some more beets and use your shotgun to get rid of the rabbits. They aren't much to eat thought the French rave about them. I have never found a rabbit recipe I liked.

Pat, I sympathize. I have two wisdom teeth causing me agony and  should be pulled (ate age 71). Fortunately, they only hurt when I bite down on a seed. Good luck with the procedure. And no, I've never heard of donut peaches. I'll google them.

Wish I had beets to pickle. Rabbits ate all the leaves which killed the tiny beets. Curses.

Good recipe, Joan, thanks!

Pickled beets and potato salad. I'll be right over.

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 16, 2014 at 7:37pm

My pickled beets are so good and very vinegary. I don't think I shared this with you before. If I have, please forgive. 

Day 1 make the pickle marinade:

1 C Braggs apple cider vinegar 

1/2 C water 

1/2 C sugar - I use less, about 1/4 C 

1/8 t pickling spice 

1/4 t mustard seeds 

1/2 yellow onion, cut into rings 

1 small bay leaf 

3/4 t whole black peppercorns

fresh dill - 6-8 "leaves" 

Bring all ingredients except beets to a boil in a 2 to 3-quart saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Cover and low simmer 30 minutes.

Cool marinade, chill, covered, allow 1 day to develop flavors. 

Day 2 

3 beets with 1 inch of tops 

Cook beets in a saucepan of simmering salted water until tender, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Drain and cool. Remove tops, slip skins off and cut into slices or wedges. 

Pour marinade through a fine sieve into a bowl. Remove onions.

Alternate the cut beets and onion rings into a quart jar, pour marinade over, cover and chill at least one day.

All this talk about potato salad, and I just finished making the dressing and cooking the potatoes and eggs. Will let them cool a bit and then toss everything together. 

My dressing is a dollop of mustard, mayo, diced white onions, celery, and dill pickle, as well as finely diced red pepper, a tablespoon or so of dill pickle juice, salt, pepper, a wee bit of finely diced garlic and a sprig of fresh dill from the garden.

When the potatoes and eggs are cool, I dice them into a large bowl, pour the dressing over all and mix.

Enough of my whining.

Does anyone ever eat donut peaches? Had not heard of them until a couple of years ago. They're now grown in my area, and are they yummy!!!!! When I first saw one, my reaction was WTF?! Then I bit into one. Juiciest sweetest peach I had ever eaten.
