Harvesting Friends / Cosechando Amigos

Harvesting Friends/ Cosechando Amigos is a story about a garden that grows more than its garden vegetables; it grows friendships!  Come meet young Lupe and her new friend Antonio as they meet in an unexpected way and grow their friendship to include their neighbors and friends of all ages.  Delicious recipe included.  Salsa and chips anyone? What do you grow in your garden?


Pungent cilantro, eye-tearing onions, mouth-searing chilis, nostril-flaring garlic, and…oh, no! The biggest, reddest, juiciest tomatoes have disappeared! In their place is a gold chain and medal.
