No better day for a change. I have decided to change the name of my blog, since Michael is home safely. It's taken me 7 months to do this. I guess better late than never.


In case no one knows what GRITS stands for, it's "GIRLS RAISED IN THE SOUTH. "

The garden has just about played out. Thank goodness. I am so sick of tomatoes...

This past weekend my parents and I made almost 200 jars of blueberry jelly, pear honey and pear relish. I don't want to see another pear either. We should be good to go for several years on the jelly and relishes, and now maybe I can relax.

I am envious of your energy and your garden. We cannot have a garden here, due to amount of rock we have and the cost of building me one.

I missing all of the tastes of summer.

Thank goodness for the folks down the road selling maters and melons.

LOVE IT. Being a Northern Gal, I can only imagine the pride behind them words. But knowing you, Southern Gals are wonderful friends.

WE are just starting to get red tomatoes. We are a little behind Mississippi. I can't wait until we get enough to where, I can just go out and pick a tomato and put some salt on it and eat it.
My mouth is watering.
Glad to see you blogging again Stacy.
