from Seed to Sauce

the theme for this Challenge was to scrap the letter G, the "G" representing a Goal in your life, and to use the word Goal at least once in the LO

'from Seed to Sauce,' is my Goal this Summer (plant enough tomatoes to can jars of whole tomatoes, sauce and salsa)

my first vegetable garden was planted 12 years ago, then a herniated disc and subsequent back surgery put an end to gardening for 3 years... until this year! With a little help from my friends, the ground was tilled, and 3 dozen tomato seedlings were planted, the tomatoes are just now beginning to ripen, and there were be canning once again at Summer's end!

"it's only a Paper Moon..."

but it wouldn't be make-believe, if you believed in me...."
the lyrics from this song were the inspiration for this StoryBook Challenge.

"It's Only A Paper Moon" was written by Harold Arlen and published in 1933, first recorded by Ella Fitzgerald in 1938, and by many others since. The song was included in the Tennesse Williams play, "A Streetcar Named Desire," which opened in 1947. "Paper Moon" studio photos were extremely popular following the release of the song and movie.
