The other day I walked by a house as the owner tended his guava tree in the front yard. He proudly announced "yes, it grown here in Arizona". I was impressed an envious. I have not had a guava since my childhood days in Africa.

2017 starts off with a very well attended meeting. We commit to our plots, pay our fee, and enjoy updates and other information. Tea making was one of those topics. Our members delve into the world of homesteading ( I seem to have an attraction for such things despite being a city girl). Ginger and Pam experimented with tea making, and as it always happens, they spread the will for others to do the same.
Kelly, the Food Bank Chair.
Pat ponders and shares about the group's past.
Chamomile grown by Ginger and ready for tea making.
Many lessons in this book.
