Missing Grandma

Here I am going through seed cataloges starting to plan for our garden. Out of the blue I really started missing Grandma Sanders. She always shared my love and excitement about working outside in the garden. She liked to try to grow something new each year too (last year I tried peanuts...I had my doubts...but we actually got some, although they were not mature).
Grandma was always excited to share seeds or plant starts or jars and jars of her hard work. Many of my favorite canning recipes came from her. My very favorite canning recipe is for her Sweet and Sour Sauce.
I think Grandma was solar powered. I'm sure she's soaking up all the sunshine and light she desires! Grandma, we love you. We honor your legacy.
