Chatting on the Deck

“Chats on the Farmhouse Porch” is a group of friends
gathering to visit,
sip their favorite beverages,
nibble delicious treats
and share their likes and dislikes.

Patrice and Wendell have invited me to join the chatting.
Patrice provides the questions,
we answer.

Today’s questions:

Do you prefer to drive or be driven?

Definitely I drive.

What’s your favorite kind of jam, jelly, or preserve?

My mom won’t believe this but I love Marmalade, that sweet tart flavor. As a kid, it was only strawberry. If I’m having peanut butter and jelly, it is still strawberry.

Do you have any special plans for this spring or summer?

In May I’m hoping to go to Phoenix to visit family and dear friends. This summer, I’m the hostess with the most veggies as I ‘man’ our veggie stand.July,2012july1412veggie stand 002

Lots of folks are becoming aware of issues with food. There are many articles, books, and movies on topics like allergies, GMO, pesticide use, bad or no labeling, over processed foods, foods from other countries that may not have high standards, and many more topics. What concerns you the most? If nothing concerns you, have a cookie and skip to the next question.

I’d rather have a cookie, but the Farmer was diagnosed with a very aggressive prostrate cancer 2 years ago and did the radiation therapy and part of the hormone therapy. He also started a completely plant based diet and began juicing vegetables daily, drinking a quart a day. Because of his research, I read labels religiously. No GMO, canola oil, sugar, no processed foods. His cancer is completely inactive today. We are thankful. 2010 1016 (62)(I haven’t made up my mind to eat plant based, though I’m sure some changes would be beneficial to my health.)

Do you use nail polish often? Finger nails, piggies, or both?
No polish for me.

Meet some new friends on the porch here.
