Into the 21st Century

I am starting my new blog today. My daughter, Kerry, created the pages. My other daughter, Elizabeth, showed me how to post and upload pictures. She kept a very interesting blog while traveling in Europe this summer.

So I begin and hope this will be a good supplement to my column in The Catholic Observer and my feature on “Real to Reel.”

There are many things I would like to share that will not fill a column. Others need a picture to tell the tale.

For example, this week’s post involves my two tomatoes which have cost me $7 so far.

After doing a story on Father Tom Lisowksi’s ecological efforts I decided to begin small and raise a tomato plant in a pot on our deck.

The plant cost $1. It was not doing too well so I bought a $6 package of Miracle Gro fertilizer.

To date the plant has yielded 2 tiny tomatoes. One was ripe and delicious. The other fell off the plant is ripening, hopefully, in our kitchen.

I see buds for maybe two more. 

Perhaps I do not have a green thumb and should just stick with making Irish bread.

Here are my two beauties.
Here are my two beauties.

 Stay tuned for more posts. I think I will put in my sister-in-law’s recipe for fruit dip soon.

In the meantime, log onto  or for more cool things.

  1. Congratulations on the start of your new blog, Mom! I can testify to the deliciousness of that tomato! Keep up the great writing.

  2. Long time since we have spoken. I too miss the good old days,but follow you and your family in the Observer and on Reel to Reel. Everyone looks great and when Wendy’s reopens on Allen Street,we must do lunch and catch up. Keep doing what you are doing,you are an inspiration for me and if I can keep my life half as holy as you keep yours,I might stand a chance someday to make it to heaven. Have a wonderful day!
