Craftiness Update

Bianca had the great opportunity to volulnteer with "Little Helping Hands" at the Child Protective Services Office "The Rainbow Room" which is staffed by volunteers from "Partnerships For Children" They sorted baby formula and dated them with expiration stickers. The Rainbow Room is a place where social workers can go and grab emergency items in a pinch. When a child is removed from a home they are usually removed with MAYBE a few items in a bag. If the item is an infant, the need is even greater of basic supplies until the child can be delivered to a foster home, usually just a few hours later. The Rainbow Room is a neccessity in this crazy world and is completely staffed by volunteers and supplied by donations only!! Bianca and I are very interested in volunteering here regularly and is a good charity for Bianca to organize supply drives when she earns Leadership Hours for Girl Scouts.
The radishes are starting to mature. I don't believe I have ever had a radish until I started growing them. They are kind of peppery and crunchy. There are many radish recipes at if you need ideas beyond the dinner salad.
Darling Daughter and Moonlite in a tender moment.
Pretty Butter Crunch Lettuce that I spared as an ornamental. Lettuce grows great in pots and this one I really like the looks of but I will definitely harvest a few leaves for a BLT.
"Caitlin's Beet". That is the name of the larges beet I have and it is going to my coworker named Caitlin who is uber excited to try her first beet.
David is getting ready for the Christmas At The Caswell function. The Austin Junior Forum runs a craft fair at the historic Caswell house. All handmade items beautifully displayed among antiques. It feels like you are stepping back in time.
