    hens do not need a rooster to lay eggs. they need a rooster to fertilize their eggs, which the sit on and make bitties. if you prefer to buy bitties once a year. Eat the rooster. We always left a few eggs each day to encourage our hems to start sitting on clutches to hatch. Little fuzzy chicks are adorable. easy to care for, healthier if home hatched on organic food, and make really good chicken n' dumpling stew. If a hen has to be removed from her nest to collect her eggs, she is in nesting mode to hatch them.

    green or half green tomatoes fried in veg oil or butter in an iron skillet. Sprinkled with salt, pepper, or sugar if tart due to green stage. And, the flavor will make your tongue slap your eyeballs. We eat fried green tomatoes like cotton candy in summer time. a few bacon strips on the side and you have a meal for any hour of the day. UMMmmm-ummm-good.

    I'm not sure if this is true but I was always told that tomatoes always ripen in the dark-…….if we put them in a dark room or a brown bag and they will ripen faster… You might wanna try that…. Love your videos here in Indiana..!

    btw egg shells around plants will keep grubs away also garlic and basil will keep most pests away. Other than that everything looks great/ Also Rooster soup with tomato and rice sounds good to me.

    Yeah man. There's only about a kazillion ways to store and/or ripen tomatoes. None of them are 'wrong', but some work better than others depending on variety. I had to laugh at "120 plants". Man,…. if I grew that many tomatoes, my neighbors would soon refuse to answer my door knocks….LOL. There's only me to feed, so I only preserve in half pints.

    I bet your wife gets tired of all those tomatoes on the counter… cheap solution = hanging 3 or 4 tier metal baskets. Air gets all the way around each tomato. And most baskets' weave is small enough that Cherry and Pear Tomatoes can go in them too. BTW On another video you had trespassers, gate your road with a No Trespasser sign. I had acreage and hunters would chase deer and elk though our neighborhood… shooting, not caring that people lived there. Water ways in most areas are NOT private property unless man made and then if property changes hands, it could become public. You need to check your land deed to see if there is any public right always.

    I myself can't stand to see food go to waste.
    I can't wait to have my own few acres with some chickens & goats that's why I watch these videos to learn as much as I can.
    Thanks for the videos. 👍

    Great harvest and good thoughts. I started viewing the Polyface Farm after you mentioned in a newer video. Thanks for sharing.

    @Stoney Ridge Farmer this is my first time viewing your channel and I must say that I am quite entertained. You sir are very down to earth and very intelligent, I can tell. Love the enthusiasm and great tips. It unfortunately has not been great weather here in Canada and I have lost quite a few 'maters due to late blight. I am not a farmer but I grow a mean garden my front yard (I currently live in the city). Thanks for the nice video. I subscribed and liked. Best regards -Lucas

    I absolutely love that- reusing and finding a place for EVERYTHING. I was trying to compost and attracted thousands of soldier fly larvae… So now, I'm letting them compost my stuff. And they make quick work of it! Next year I'll do it again except… Compost from them, feed them to the chickens, chickens make eggs, chicken manure back to the soldier fly larvae, compost back to the garden!

    Great Harvest! I'm used to living on an acre property where we had a compost bin for vegetable scraps and then the city's green waste bin program for meat and animal product waste. Now, for work, I am living in an apartment in a city that doesn't have a green bin program and I feel guilty every time I throw vegetable scraps into the garbage. I can't wait until I am in the financial position to buy a property with a large enough backyard to have gardens, chckens, ducks, and compost bins

    For 20 plus years we've been composting with two 36inch x 36inch composters with chicken wire sides. One cooking,one finishing. We glean the neighborhood giving to shelters and bad in the composter.
    We have 4 hens and bees all on a 65×175 urban lot. It can be done as you said for a few extra minutes. We all can be organic and respectful to the future generation and the planet.

    It appears besides a nurse, farmer, Jack of all trades, your also a musician. You do all your own music for each video also do you not? Man where do you find the time with the editing of video and everything also. Have you ever played in a band?

    Grow a bunch of Basil around your tomato plants so the worms stay away… if you don't already.

    I know how you feel about waste when it comes to food. My wife and I own a trucking company have our own authority. So we drive 2 trucks and trailers around the United States and it kills us when we have to throw something out when it's rotted. I try my best to throw it in the woods at a truck stop so at least an animal can get it or Compost back in the earth.

    Love your videos Josh your a good dude!

    120 tomato plants! Is that all for your family? When you do your videos about canning, will you say how many you go through in a year of the things you make? That's my goal, to make enough for us for a year. I'm trying to make enough salsa for a year, but I'm not sure how many we go through, because we ran out this last year. I think we can easily go through 4 pints a months.

    anything you pick will not ripen any more after they are picked .  they will change color because they are slowly rotting . and sure the flavor will change . pick ripe dunk in boiling water  , skin and freeze  when you get them all picked then you cook and can , all will taste so much better . Just a thought .

    got a rooster answer for you…. you got tomatoes and a rooster… so you got the ingredients to make chicken parmagiana…. the chickens dont need the rooster to lay eggs..

    I live inside the city limits of Houston, and my next door neighbor has a coop with a rooster and a couple of chickens in the back yard. The rooster is not allowed by city ordinance, but the neighborhood doesn't seem to mind it.
