Sometimes I add feta, other times bacon crumbles. sometimes I skip the curry powder and use anchovie paste. How do you make your bean salad?
With canned beans..... Oh dear, now I feel very inadequate! I do intend starting a veg garden when I get the inside of the house sorted out,

Why do I think I'll still be saying that on my 100th birthday?

Just noticed this thread because you floated it up to the top again CW, and I couldn't help but notice this from an entry on page 1:

I remember reading a hint decades ago that claimed to help with both ripening 'lopes and also preventing rot from sitting on the ground. You put each one on a a pedestal! Actually, you use a metal coffee can - which, these days, is a rarity. I would think any wide-based can would work. When the melon is about fist-sized, bury the can open end down and balance the melon on the flat surface above ground. The can magnifies the warmth the melon gets so it grows/ripens a bit quicker. If you can find the melons with the shortest growing time you might be able to pull this off? Good luck, if you try it. I never did.

That reminds me, CWS, did you have any luck finding seeds for "the Montreal melon"?

No. I did not, TL. When's the Danish luncheon in May? I'm thinking I might be able to attend.

It's the second Wednesday in May. That would be cool if you could come.
