The Manna Pesto

I know, I know, it's been awhile. Stuff is happening, recipes are being made but time hasn't been there to dedicate to my little corner of the web. Es la vida! My garden is not in production at the moment. Yes, just when I thought that this year I would have a bountiful spring - especially with artichokes, the darn landlord went and tore out the guerrilla garden again. Oh well. The avocado tree is in full production mode so life ain't so bad.

Here is a little something for my fellow gardeners out there:


Isn't that great! I got this from my husband's grandparents, Ray and Paula Krotser, who lived in Berkeley, CA from mid-1970s until late 1990's. I really don't know anything more about the flyer or the group - do you?

UPDATE: If you would like a copy of this just leave me your email in the comments section. Let's spread a little Manna Pesto around, shall we?

She has been trying to get me to comment on the blog for awhile now....

So either this or an earlier version was actually an invitation to a party thrown by some of those old lefties, likely Jim and Sherrie. Beware of an idea. Before long it turned into a semi organized group with a newsletter, cleanups of People's Park, and I don't know what else. The copy shown here hung in my grandparents' kitchen for years, thus the occasional food stains. I'm very fond of the E Pluribus Onion motif, unique to this print run.

Dear Cousin,

We are distantly related and I am in contact with a lady who is your husband's second cousin once removed. Paula Krotzer nee Homberger was the daughter of Heinrich Homberger and Elizabeth "Lilla" Tautphaus. The Tautphaus family history goes back to the beginning of the reformation in Germany. I also descend from this family.

Paula was a member of the communist party during the McCathy era but later quit the party. Jim Broadstreet interviewed her in 1986 and I have a copy of the transcript. She mentions in the interview belonging to many different groups. I am not sure which this one is.
