Little phyllo cups filled with custard and berries
Farmer's Market cukes and dill.
Do you know what they are charging for green onions at the store??? $1.00 for 6 individual onions! ONE DOLLAR??? Do you know what the mark up on that is??? They tried to charge me $2.50 for 5 Kirby cukes, but I wasn't having that. I will not pass on growing onions, next year. For $1.00, you can buy 30 count sets and have onions all darn year!! One dollar for 6= 17cents a piece!? For the birds!
Cucumbers, well, it's just a matter of finding someone who is growing them, then you will have cucumbers. There's an old joke that says in cucumber growing season, don't drive with your windows down because people will shove cucumbers in your car while you're stopped at a light! With raised beds, I am not sure how, but I will grow cucumbers next year...! I won't pay .50 for a cucumber, that's for sure!
One thing I must be sure to include tonite: Congratulations to Mandie and Miles and William. They have a new addition to their family, Emma Grace! God's Blessings on the baby and on Dan and Barb!
I love those guys, they are family to me!
Our church has approached us to join a group to go to Joplin, Mo to help those who were affected by the tornadoes. My Darling and I have committed to this ministry mission. We are hoping Barb goes with us. My Darling will miss school, but she will be granted an opportunity to help someone who has had everything ripped away from them. That is an experience not taught in school. Perhaps it will bring some humility and gratitude, something not easily taught, either.
