Mornin...Where I live....my surroundings,the garden,and somethin new..
A little history: 1951 Don Gabriel Maldonado opened a little bakery at 2951 24th Street named La Victoria Bakery. At the time it was mostly an Italian and Irish working class neighborhood in the inner mission near to St. Peters Church. He eyed the location across the street, home of Murphy’s Drug store, as a better location as it was directly next to the church and on the “sunnier side ” of the street. In 1955 he moved across the street and never looked back. La Victoria Bakery has been making pan Dulce the original way for over 60 years. Just the way grandfather and great-grandfather Maldonado had been doing before little Jr. opened La Victoria. Real milk, whole eggs. and fresh starter.
Domínguez Bakery Lives History, right across the street is this Mexican bakery...which I usually go to...I know them personally...It's also a family owned the Mother then the daughters as well work there..
The Garden update:
My tomatoes are growing now so happy. Last year I barely got any and this one is huge with tomatoes coming. I have also had a problem with lit white flies and this ugly little red brown bug..I had to soap the leaves in different spots to try to maintain them..I want those tomatoes to grow..they seem to suck the life out of the blooms...lit buggers...
Last nite Vee got on the computer so I sat down I had been playing with the pink thread from the other day, something going around in my mind...so this is what I came up with a sachet...with those same colors..I really like them..
