This Will Curl Your Hair, No Mold, Fun Place to Shop

1. The kind of misty day when the mist gently sticks to my eyelashes.
2. Steve's father sent along this little trick to prevent berries from molding so quickly:
Mix 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water. Gently rinse berries in this wash.
It's been a pet peeve of mine that strawberries mold within a day. I tried this trick yesterday and my berries are still perfect this morning. He says it works for all berries and they will last up to two weeks, but I won't be putting that two-week part to the test.
3.I like the variety of things available at Ikenberry's farm market. I stopped there to buy salted peanuts for the guys and I found all the tomato plants I wanted for the garden. They also have old-fashioned candies by the pound to mix-and-match into brown paper bags. I love Bit-O-Honey!


  1. This is so interesting - this is the second time this week I've heard that vinegar / berry tip. It was also in my condominium complex's quarterly newsletter. I'm glad to hear it works.

  2. Oh, wow, thanks for the berry trick, Leonora. I have the same pet peeve. Why is it they don't last for more than a day? And I never rinse them until just before eating.

    Bit-O-Honey. Yum!
