Pumpkins . . . on the vine?

Well, I just learned something. Thanks.

Pumpkins . . . on the vine?

After they are cut off the vine, they have to cure for a week or so in the sun, which is maybe why you see them already cut loose. If there is another not quite ripe squash on the same vine as the one that you are interested in harvesting, you can damage it by cutting carelessly.

Help finalizing restaurants, deserts, cocktail/speakeasy, as well as opinions on SF staples

It has been a couple of years since we went to Mamacita. Maybe they have improved a lot, but we found them bland and boring.

Andy will probably have peppers galore in the next couple of weeks. They will definitely show up in the mystery boxes and by the pound. The great thing about the mystery boxes is that you can sign up when it looks good. (This is Mariquita.)

The FiveThirtyEight Does Burritos

The lack of rice is a big plus for me.

The mystery boxes are $25. You sign up for the mailing list and then if you want a box, you order it, usually a few days in advance. The newsletter also lists what is going to be bulk for the week.

Where to buy fresh lard?

Both Fatted calf and Fifth quarter sell it as I am pretty sure Boccalone does.

Anyone used Good Eggs/Fair Share specialty food delivery services?

I have used them for various things, no produce or protein but I have bought bread on several occasions. They carry the Bar Tartine bread and are available in the East Bay.

Best one-stop supermarket?

A hundred years ago, when I shopped at Calmart, they delivered. Do they still deliver?

Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market - Saturdays [San Francisco]

Go early, you will not regret it. After 9 or so, it gets really crowded.

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

I think I may have posted this somewhere before, but I once bought 25 lbs and checked them as luggage in a bag (long before 9/11) and my luggage was lost for two days--quite a disaster, but they did compost well.

Hatch Green Chiles 2014

just a container, not a 25 lb bag?

Guanciale in SF

I find that the San Francisco store has almost all their products available.

Transporting wine and spirits in car for 6 hours

I believe it depends on the importer.

Okonomiyaki: SFBA Dish of the Month August 2014

I have had this twice at the same place in Tokyo. I am pretty sure it could not have been considered a sweet potato pancake.We liked it so much the first time that we went back a second time. Not quite as good, but slightly different, whatever was in the kitchen as mentioned earlier.

Makeshift Poll: what would have been better than the new Q&A format?

I do not want to read every post 5, 10 15 times to sort through answers. Why can't you ask questions in discussions? That is what normal people do or maybe the question is used to do.

Chambre and/or table d'hote in Austria Countryside worth the detour?

We had a wonderful meal at Gasthof Eberhard in St. Michael. We did not stay there but that was available. Definitely local. Chef/owner very friendly and great food. We were there in September 2011. Venison with sauce that used pumpkin oil. Last peaches from the garden in a wonderful dessert. Styrian food. Sturmi on this board has posted about it also.
