Wow! Great week for Paige's Pantry Bags

Hi Friends

I had a fun week again. Rode horses and went to the beach at school. At home I am reading The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is good so far. This weekend I am going to glean figs!

Thank you to the Corder Family for the Pomegranates!

Note about the Jicama from Melissa’s Produce

The new crop of jicama has not fully cured, meaning that the skin has not fully matured. However, it has the best taste, it’s juicer and sweeter! The skin is subject to have discoloration on the surface which will not affect taste, texture or coloration of the flesh. THe flesh cuts clean and white.
