Strange, but I never--and I mean never--buy grapes. I like them, just never think to buy them. I have a white grape arbor that infrequently produces clusters (not this year). And I started a Concord variety last year (nothing yet).

Since I read that microwaves are bad for one's health, I've tried to avoid it for cooking purposes. Who knows if it's true.

I love green seedless grapes also.  That is, I love them fresh off the vine.  Not from the store shelf.

Carl, I absolutely love green, seedless, grapes. I could eat my weight in the darn things. And, here in the southern most part of Illinois, I've not had any trouble getting them. However, I have to confess, I've been eating more peaches and local fruit which is currently in season. Especially the white, freestone, variety of peaches.

Spud, I've never had any food explode in the microwave. Well, other than a few bubbles bursting in stew, chili, soup, etc., if I overheat it. Then again, I've never cooked eggs in a microwave - ever. Bacon, on the other hand......

Up until a few months ago, I've never had any food explode after removing it from the microwave, and thought the tales of it happening were overblown.

I now know it happens.  For some reason in the last few months, a few of my eggs exploded after taking them out.

I've never been hurt by them, but have been startled, and had a little warm egg in the face : )

What are your experiences?

My favorite summer-time fruit are grapes - red and green seedless.  I go crazy eating them.

This summer, however, I've hardly purchased them.  The supply at the fruit market has been very small in quantity and also very poor in quality.

Has there been some major grape harvest failure this year?  I'm curious if any of you have had a similar experience this year.

Joan, thanks so much for your comments! Nate and Emily's farm is constantly evolving. My mother, nee Silverthorn, would be so pleased and proud (died Aug, '01).

Daniel, thanks for the great video on watermelon cutting. Going shopping today! Watermelon is on the list. So are beets. I love pickled beets.

Randy, you have the right to be very proud of your family. The slideshow took my breath away with the variety and quality of their produce. It demonstrates that organic farming provides healthy food and doesn't destroy the biomass that makes life possible. 

This family appears to know how to raise kids, organic food and contributes to the health of the Earth. Those kids will learn many skills that will serve them well in their lifetime.

The amount of work it takes to create this operation just blows my mind. I am so glad there are people and parents who do this for their kids.

Randy, I just looked at your s-i-l's website. No wonder you are so proud! Their website is a great invitation to CSA participation and they have a fine operation.

Ate hot cereal made of fresh oats this morning, compliments of my organic farmer son-in-law (silverthorn-farm.com). WOW--what a difference! They harvested their oats last week. If you haven't checked out their website and newsletter(s) you should. Sorry if I keep mentioning them, but I'm so impressed.
