Nice SMs. I took Aussie Dave's advice and harvested the best SMs and seeded them. Fairly easy to do. Did a Google on how to do it. Basically take the pulp put in a cup let it a white mold form (stinky), rinse well and throw away pulp and any seeds that float. Dry seeds and store in a air tight container. I'm ready for 2014..........

Very fine looking maters Chip,
They do seem to all ripen at once. I missed a photo op' last weekend. My grand daughter picked an Easter basket full. I understand that a good many of them went into making a great tasting salsa. The rest we used on fresh salads and of course, seed for next year .

Russell,
Sounds like we found similar instructions for fermenting the seeds. I washed, separated, and dried mine on an old window screen. They are now in a sealed paper envelope. I'll probably do one more small batch of seeds with the next wave that ripens.

I got a few things done on the oven.



The metal work is done. I really like the look of the old corrugated tin.



The dome brick veneer has been grouted.



And the polished concrete is done.

I built a drawer for the wood storage area.



Double doors open up for a quick to reach storage area.



The whole thing tracks out supported by the garage door track and rollers. I built four sliding/lift out drawers for extra storage.



Under neath the lift out drawers is plenty of space for anything five foot long or under.

Everything looks great...genius idea for the drawer. I better not show that to the good woman or I'll have something else to build.

Thanks Stonecutter,
But the idea for the drawer precedes me. It is just another one of those ideas that have been stolen from others on this forum. I just put my little spin on mine .

Outstanding Build! So many unique features all in one build, even if you have "stolen" a few ideas here and there (so you say) you've brought them all together in one truly original structure. I also like the aged patina on the tin it complements the salvaged brick giving the impression that the oven has been there for 50 yrs. It looks to be well protected so it should last for another 50 yrs no problem. Congratulations.
