I hurriedly put together a few jars of pickles on Sunday night and after further research I realized that I didn't put nearly enough salt in my brine. Is it to late to add more ~36 hours later?

Edit, I sometimes top up my jars with brine if it bubbles over spilling so much that the top veg gets exposed to air. Its totally fine, just be sure you don't over salt.

Recently moved and got an electric glass top stove. The water bath granite ware canner I have isn't compatible with the new stove and I'm looking for alternatives. I've been eyeing an electric water bath canner that ball makes but don't have the money right now and am a little sceptical because of some reviews I've read about it breaking. Does anyone have any suggestions to an alternative to get me by for a little bit?

I've got to say I'm pretty new to reddit and have asked a few questions in other subs and don't get a lot of answers and a few of them have just been jerks about me asking a question they've already heard asked, but the amount of people here willing to answer with sincere answers is pretty awesome. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that is throwing in their 2 cents, the suggestions and help is much appreciated!

That’s how I do it. My air conditioner would outright die if I canned in my Louisiana kitchen. I have a 4 burner grill with the side burner. The wheels for the grill are on the opposite end to keep from tipping. Just out of extra precaution, I put a sandbag on the other side to balance the weight. It does take a bit longer to boil, but it works perfectly fine.

I'm going to have to take a good look at my grill. It wasn't the nicest one you could buy at the time (3 years ago) and the screws in it seem to loosen and fall out after repeated movement. I'm afraid of putting a lot of weight on it as it seems somewhat shoddy. I'm glad to know it's an option though if it can hold the weight

Wow! Did you trim it back at all? My reaper looks like a small thick bush after overwintering, nothing like this at all http://imgur.com/gallery/EGGf8xJ And today http://imgur.com/TpVxcZi

Wow! That's some harsh pruning there! I've overwintered it by keeping the split of 4 branches whole and removing some of the smaller branches. Still i mostly let nature run it's course. It lost some of it's leaves in january and one of the branches died (and was removed) in april. After that i gave the plant a bigger pot, some new soil and off it went!

Maybe I went overboard on the pruning? I'd never done it before and basically relied on what I had hurriedly read as it was a last minute decision the evening before the first frost. Glad it turned out ok in the end.

Some type of allium. Might be spider. I have them and boy do they spread.

I just moved in, do they do any special flowering or anything or is that it?

It's just starting to open. Give it a few days. Part of the onion and chive family. Pinch a part of the leaf part off. If it smells like onion it's an allium.

Thank you. Was the smaller pot just for space constraints or is there another reason? And just to be clear, about what percentage should I trim it down to?

see more

Only a smaller pot because of space issues. As far as a percentage I'm not really sure, here's some pictures, maybe they'll help. Overwintered Carolina reaper https://imgur.com/gallery/EGGf8xJ

Oh wow! That took off a pretty good part of the plant. Thank you for the pictures.

That's how I had read to do it. It was my first time doing this so could have just been beginners luck. Good luck!

I do game sharing with my son. He can play games on his profile in his bedroom but if he signs in to his profile on my xbox it says he doesn't own the game. Does it have something to with which console is set as his home xbox? Is there a simple work around so he can play on his profile on both xbox's?

Every digital purchase gets two licenses. The first license is tied to the purchasing account. It allows that account to access the content on any Xbox in the world on the condition that it is connected to Xbox Live.

The second license is tied to purchasing account's Home Xbox. It allows any profile on that one Xbox access to the game. It also allows for offline play.

Gamesharing is NOT a two way street like many people believe. You do NOT have to switch Home Xbox settings to set up gamesharing.

In this case, your son doesn't have access to the game on your Xbox because the license he can use, the second license detailed above, is not on that Xbox. It is on his Xbox.

The only way around this limitation is if your profile is signed in concurrently with his profile on your Xbox. The Xbox will recognize your license, the first license detailed above, and give your son access.

I got ya, I guess I kinda misunderstood how it worked. Thanks for the detailed post

I've never seen any for sale where I live, but a friend of mine in Indiana said she's seen them sell there for $15 for a five pack of reapers.

I've heard they sell reapers down at Jungle Jim's down by Cincinnati, can't confirm though

They didn't when I was there about a month ago. But maybe they have to be in season, I don't know

I thought I heard that but I didn't see them myself and live 2 hours away so can't directly confirm if that's true

If this game isn't a post apocalyptic clone of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood then I'll eat a big steak with potatoes and wash it down with some bourbon.

Looks like thrips. I had the same problem yesterday, but they seem to have disappeared today. Apparently they're bad, they'll suck out the sap.

I'll second them being thrips. And you're correct with them being sap suckers.

Any advice on how to get rid of them? I had a big swarm of them flying around last night but they seem to be gone today. I'm worried about them coming back though.

Looks like it's probably thrips. Guess it'll get the neem oil/ dish soap treatment tomorrow night

Could u get a more defined shot of the little guy?

That was the best I could get unfortunately. When I got any closer with the camera it just looked like a blur

Original Poster1 point · 2 months ago

It got done raining and they're everywhere now. Apparently they can fly. I managed to get a few good shots https://imgur.com/gallery/956XsHT

Might want to get some nutrient in it. Mine exploded after I started feeding it regularly.

I should clarify that I use miracle gro potting soil that already has fertilizer in it. Any kind of nutrients you recommend? I already have some fox farm grow big and big bloom that I've been using to bottom water some seedlings.

I've even had sucess with the generic Wal-Mart mix- their version of miracle grow. I also add a little bit of blooming fert to the mix too and water with that about every 2 weeks.
