I did enjoy reading this article. It's always a good idea to refresh your memory each season. I have a gas range this harvesting season. You don't mention styles of ranges. Is one just as good as the next? How about firepits?

I have a recipe for sliced green tomatoes that involves salting them in layers,draining off the liquid from the tomatoes. Then Adding a 1/2 1/2 mixture of vinegar and water and letting them sit for 24hrs, draining them and adding olive oil,garlic,oregsno.And spooning them into jars. Do these have to be refrigerated?
