A 'New' Read

Today a friend sent me this lovely organic blog site to peruse.  They work with their community in such ways as to offer help to all searching for better ways to grow, eat and deliver organic produce to the local folks.  Recipes and photos abound.  Enjoy

Mrs. Mac,

Thank you for the site information, I will go check it out.

How's your son doing?

Mrs. Mac said...

Nathan is doing remarkably well. Thanks for asking .. I suppose I should write a blog post on his progress. Thanks for stopping by Sandy.

Dear Mrs. Mac,
I love the way you keep on sharing and searching.
You enrich my life in so many ways.
I looked up the site and I've bookmarked it. Just now it was about plums. Guess what! The giant tree in our garden, which I thought was a cherry tree, and everybody advised me to get rid of, is bearing fruit for the first time in 15 years, and it's PLUMS! Our heavenly father sure has surprises up his sleeve. I am so grateful.

I'm keepig both your sons close to my heart Andrew Nathan is so lovely and meets his challenges with a victorious attitude. I'd love to read more about him. I wondered how he felt over that great wedding taking place, but I prayed and I hope things went like they should; fine.
Sean Patrick has also settled in, with a somewhat too rough job for my taste. He need not be a hero all the time. Hope his lungs are not harmed by the horrible Californian fire.
It wa so nice so see him with his girlfriend at the wedding.
I wish for him the very best.

Thank you, Felisol .. prayers are always welcome and appreciated.

So, you've got a plum tree .. how great! I hope you have time to make some plum preserves, jam, tarts, and maybe some sauce. Enjoy them until you get your fill .. then share with everyone .. neighbors/friends/family.

You will have to dig up old weather stats from the last time it bloomed and fruited. Perhaps you have had a warmer and longer summer.

Thanks for the 'visit' :)
