    I may have eaten my last canned peach. It said "Elberta" on the label. Where is that? Canada? ~ s h u d d e r ~

    The banana sticker says Ecuador. Somewhere near the equator, isn't it?. I know that we aren't near any equator cause we have 16 hours of sunshine lately :D. So, nanny nanny boo boo ~

    DW has thawed some winter squash overnight in the fridge, wonder what she is up to. I brought some tomato sauce in from the freezer for today's spaghetti. Hey! Squash and tomatoes are fruits.

    Rainier cherries from Yakima. Strawberries from Hermiston. Blueberries from Salinas. Salinas local. I was born just a few miles from Salinas so ... I'm a local.

    Right now we're eating raspberries and strawberries from our garden, my female Actinidia kolomikta is loaded with fruit this year but have to wait another month for these. They are sweet and pop in your mouth yummy.
