Those are some of the C plants I have chosen for my plot in the Community Garden. It will hold a colorful mixture of whatever I can squeeze into my allotted space. Think companion planting gone crazy!
In our ministry garden, which I am naming the Communitas Garden for today (who knows it might even stick), I'm hoping to create a colorful, creative, child-friendly, community-building space where I can engage in some lively conversation with other gardeners and connect with people from the community.
Check out this cool letter C plant that I just discovered- Chocolate Flower! These are definitely on the new seed order list.
Come along, let's leave the garden and move along to a very sweet C word ... Candy (which I'm not supposed to be eating now that I've jumped in to the Real Food Challenge). Valentine's Day is coming up, and I thought you might enjoy this little virtual plant tour of Necco where those famous Sweethearts candies are made. Pretty cool, huh? Though I can't eat them (they are certainly not on the real food list), I think I'm going to buy a box to use for some crafts ... what could you craft with a box of Sweethearts and a bottle of Mod Podge (i love this stuff) I wonder??? Cards. What else?
Now, I must share my newest Spanish word with you- cantar. Who knew it had so many different meanings ... I will have to be careful with this one. Sing, have smelly feet (really, that's what the dictionary says), stick out like a sore thumb... And people say the English language is complicated. I hope I don't crack up the next time our pastor says, "Vamos cantar!"
OK ... this completes my completely convoluted, corny and certainly confusing commentary on the letter C. I'm off to find some candy (chocolate would be nice) ... I promise only to eat one little piece, then I'll get right back on track with the Real Food Challenge!
update: Coffee ... I cannot believe I forgot COFFEE (which could be why my post was so crazy and convoluted ... I needed caffeine!)
