  1. Hey dilli,
    thanks for the heads up on the castor bean! I did do a little research on it too.
    This looks like a great recipe, I just bought 2 buckets of nut butters from Once Again in Nunda & was thinking on what to make with all of that peanut butter, so very glad to find your recipe here today! One of the buckets is sunflower butter...i may give that a try in the recipe too.

  2. oh that sounds yummy michelle,i bet that it would be good with sunflower, as would most nut butter. Nunda ,, lol last time I was in that town I had skipped out of a high school dance n rode there with a friend to a party where I had a knife pulled on me in the stair well..What a night lol

    I was going to tell you that the tomato seeds sprouted in 3 days and every seed came up..I was happy to see them up so quick

  3. oh boy, sounds like wild times in Nunda!

    glad to hear that you had good resoults w/ the tomato seeds...yellow pear, right? I love those little maters. hope they grow & produce well for you too.

    it's not quite time to start seeds here yet, it's been nice so lots of cleanup indoors & out.
