We really do need a special YOU SUCK! award for garden dig ups.  I nominate OilyRascal for the first recipient!

What a great leg vise!

Never mind that, I want to know what the heck kind of seeds he is planting in the garden....
The rusted nails sure aren't working for me...
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

Humbly and proudly accepted!


Never mind that, I want to know what the heck kind of seeds he is planting in the garden....

Since you asked - and in no particular order.  carrots, ice burg lettuce, spinach, collards, Radish, Snow Peas, Purple Hull Peas, Kentucky Wonder Bush beans, Peaches N Cream Corn, G90 Corn, red onions, Georgia Vidalia, Texas Sweet, Better Boy/Park Whopper/ Roma/Brandley County tomatoes, turnips, crooked neck squash, black beauty squash, straight 8 cucumbers, charleston watermelon, Cantelope, Honeydew melon, pototoes, strawberries, and.....man it seems like I'm leaving something out.

EDIT - add red/green/yellow/black bell peppers, banana pepper, jalapeno, red pepper, and the wife's spice isle

Yep, Turnips.  I eat the greens fresh like I would collards, and can them sometimes mixed with Mustard greens or collards, but many people like the turnip bulbs themselves both cooked and uncooked.

Braised young turnips are hard to beat.

1lb young turnips, diced
1 1/2 oz butter
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1/4 pint stock
1 tsp sugar

Caramelize the butter and sugar, add the stock, turnips, and parsley, and simmer until tender.

You can also cook turnips (or rutabagas) until soft, and mash them like potatoes. (That's how some people made it through the Irish potato famine in the 1840s.)

Nice vice! Small one, but it sure looks usable. It even has the notches for the pipe clamp attachments! Think those are down there somewhere too?

I've scratched my head long enough on this piece I've found in the garden and I'm ready to ask for help.  Does anybody recognize this copper(?) part/knob?

Mac - I have no idea what those "clamp attachments" may look like.  I may have already found them and they're in the pile of small iron down the hill.  If you could assist me in knowing what they look like I'd love to get them back to their rightful home (assuming I've already found or do find them).  Many thanks!

It's a top for a harness hame.
