The deer out here eat a lot of sage brush.¬* Their meat tastes like hell!

Just think of it as Thanksgiving sage and eat it. G



EEEEEEYUK!!!

Love elk and moose though!

A lot of white tail deer eat a lot of youpon bushes, so much so they
tend to prune stand alone youpon bushes. Doesn't affect the meat as far
as I can taste. Deer in Orange County, Texas seemed to like corn leaves
about as good as locusts. I have run upon deer carcasses with a hoof
caught in a small sweet gum tree so they can't be very smart.

I've never had a chance at eating elk or moose, have eaten a lot of
armadillo, snakes of all kinds, turtles, etc. When you're hungry you
will eat most anything. At my age I prefer sirloin steaks and, maybe a
good roast with sweet potatoes and green beans. Can't walk far enough to
hunt deer anymore and they won't let me shoot the one that beds down
behind my fence. I might take up archery again or try to stick a sword
between the fence boards. G

Default review: Red Holland versus Grey Griselle Shallot

Hi All,

This year I successfully grew¬* (ya, me huh!) both
Red Holland and Grey Griselle Shallot.

Red Holland:
¬*¬* several bulbs the size of a golf ball
¬*¬* scapes (yummy!)
¬*¬* Taste of a yellow onion with a garlic overtone

Grey Griselle:
¬*¬* lots of little tiny bulbs the size of garlic cloves
¬*¬* sinks that can only be characterizes as "bark".
¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* You have to "saw" through hem.
¬*¬* Taste of a yellow onion with a garlic overtone
¬*¬* no scapes :'(

¬*¬* EXTREMELY STRONG.¬* Can only be used in cooking.
¬*¬* A "sliver" will cause severe pain in your sinuses and
¬*¬* make your stomach lurch so hard you will almost puke.

Lessons learned:
¬*¬* they like to be watered like any other plant.
¬*¬* They like acid soil.¬* The bulbs with more peat moss
¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* around them grew bigger.

My conclusion is that both of these are a pain in the ass
to grow for the small amount of food they produce.¬* And
Both the wife and I like Yellow Onions better.¬* So next
year it is yellow onions instead!

I have my eye on "Senshu Yellow" yellow onions.¬* They over winter
and like zones 5 and 6 (I am 6c).¬* Plus they give a half
pound bulb.



Oh, and I found three now deceased earwigs hiding inside the Griselle
clumps of shallows, which answers that question.
