…Because it’s so easy to post random stuff! For instance, I have been known to thaw a chicken on the radiator. You wouldn’t believe how handy it is. I got a wide shot so it would include the coincidental placement of Alice’s chicken.

I can’t seem to get back to this blog over the gardening break; but I’ll be placing my seed order in the next few days, so there’s no denying it’s coming back soon! Thankfully, my mom sent a lengthy and positive review of the fruit relish I made last fall. So, here’s my guest contributor, Mary Liechty šŸ™‚

I have the blessing of being the recipient of several great canned items from Glacier gardens. It doesn’t hurt that I’m the mother-in-law, mother, and grandmother of those that work coaxing bounty from that piece of earth.

Yesterday we had a gathering of family here in Texas, it was for the winter birthdays. We decided to do tacos, after all we do live in Texas. With our tacos I set out two items from Glacier garden. I had a jar of jalapeƱos. I also had a jar of fruit salsa.

No problem with jalapeƱos in Texas. They were heartily appreciated. The unexpected surprise was how much everyone loved the fruit salsa. I expected a few of the gals to try it. However, I was very surprised by the responses of the guys in the room.

Skeptical eyebrows went up as each took a “taste.” Then those eyebrows went up further as eyes widened while the fruity delight gave a new and refreshing experience. There was very little left at the end of the party. I saved it just because it was sooooo good.

We like our salsa hot and spicy in Texas. We like our tacos the same way. Yet, this chunky version with it’s sweet and tangy savor hit a cord here and was appreciated by all.

Can’t wait to see what the new planting produces.
