Next year: take the grapes more seriously!

Tobacco blossoms

Volunteers that popped up late summer 2017, slow growth over winter, so leaves are small & plants are short — during summer they’ll get 5 ft tall even outside.  We’ve also had plants overwinter outdoors.  Tough guys!  I need to learn more about how these plants affect bees that visit; nicotinoids are very toxic to them.  (BTW, those are shallots in the background, not weeds, but plenty of cleanup is overdue!)

Whats For Lunch? Bandon Life

How about a tortilla chip and a drip of hot sauce? After A wee kitchen project on Martin Luther King Day in Bandon… What I’m having.

Glaedengarden season’s end filtered serrano pepper sauce.

So…. There’s Tabasco, which is pretty good, aged and stuff like that, right? Well this sauce is excruciatingly fresh.

One of these will go and become our “Pastor’s Personal Pepper Preparation” sauce.

This morning’s sunrise ~ a passing thought made real!

It’s great that in the Winter months at this latitude, you don’t actually have to get up so stinking early  that it hurts, to catch a sunrise.   Kristin’s photo. What a beauty.  ~ David

The rest of the story. I had just been listening to Joyce Meyer’s encouraging words: “Something good is going to happen today!”  The language and assurance of Hope.  At that moment, all I thought was, “Maybe there will be a stunning sunrise?”  And a few moments later, there it was!  ~ kristin
