Asparagus and Deer

posted by: eboone on 07.16.2013 at 09:15 am in Vegetable Gardening Forum

Does anyone know if deer will eat an asparagus planting? I am planning a new asparagus bed and wonder if the abundant local deer will make it necessary to plant inside a fence or not.

Canning peaches

posted by: eboone on 07.02.2013 at 09:36 am in Harvest Forum

Hello all,
I have frozen my excess bounty of peaches in the past, and now am interested in learning canning. I have heard that most 'eating' peaches turn to mush in the canning process. I have a couple of white peach varieties, a Hale Haven and an Encore yellow peach. Anyone with experience with canning these peaches? Any advice on how to do it without too much loss of the structural integrety of the peach halves or slices?

Second, I am planning to plant several more varieties of peaches next spring - any advice on varieties that do well for both fresh eating and canning?
