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