Thursday at Our House

I just happened to run across a very interesting website called The First Thanksgiving
..Squanto's Garden and how it saved the first Thanksgiving......

You can download a free ebook with a total history of the Piligrims and their struggle with the poor soil of New England...how Squanto showed them how to garden..I haven't read it all but what I did read was very informative..as we have poor soil here too..you also, (of course there is always a catch with something that is free) get an advertisement for their fish emulsion product that sounds very good indeed...I know that fish emulsion is good gardening as when my dad would go fishing, he would take the trimmings, heads, tails, etc..and bury them in the flower beds...we had the most beautiful elephant ear plants and calla lilies in the San Diego neighborhood..maybe next spring, I will order some..a little late in the year right now..for gardening but the ebook is a winner....so check it if you are so inclined.........

speaking of gardening...do you remember the fig tree twig Alan planted in a pot this summer?
We were both so pleasantly surprised to find it growing, and leafing out...never realizing it would actually produce fruit but lo and behold!


A fig in November! the mini me tree is growing also...he may need to repot it...we are thinking of bringing it in the house soon as the nights are getting a mite chilly..almost down to freezing.....


We are having a difficult time financially right now so I covet your prayers.....don't want to go into details but we are praying the Lord will provide us with funds to cover so several important
bills..like getting our home modification, taxes, lawyer fees and more..of course, this all comes right during the holiday season...He is able, I know and have faith......
I am selling some of my treasured items to help. I have this very rare and special cooky plate on Ebay right now..been in the family for decades....its Californian pottery from the 1950s or late 40s........
