    In September, our monthly theme is GARDEN. Let’s play the alphabet game for this theme. Let’s have fun. Let’s find words related to gardening, sowing, weeding, harvesting, etc. No need to find specific food items (although we can if we are stuck) but let’s be creative and extract some words that go along with all the work in the garden, the tools, and the tasks.

    Who will start?

    Jam & jelly, some of the best ways to keep your produce.  Also jicama, a great veggie, but too hard to grow in the north.

    I am truly sorry for my post today for the Letter X.  I failed to see page two and completely missed the postings that were already there.  My sincere apologies to all, and especially to Dianne who had already posted for the Letter X.  I was not trying to be a copy cat and the whole thing was just a miserable oversight on my part.  AGAIN, MY APOLOGIES.
