N-1-a-30a – 30d
I wish we could find more fruits, we did try very hard –
We have approximately
1200 civil oranges
100 sweet oranges
380 mangoes (eat @ once)
We also have sweet potatoes & cassava about 200 lb all told
Now the problem – The mango must be ate at once!!!
The civil orange & Lemon can be used only for juice!! Civil orange is very sour!!
There are 100 sweet oranges for the children!
I thought that with the pineapple & juice from Lemons & civil oranges everyone would get some vitamin C!!
I just worried because sometimes I think the kitchen doesn’t like to squeeze all the juice out & I think we should squeeze out every drop of the juice so everyone can have some.
So with the amount of fruit it can be equal out.
I want to get everyone an orange or mango [illegible word]. I could not do so. I’m trying not to be redundant but I just wanted you to know what is here so someone can push the kitchen so as not to let citrus spoil.
Sometimes Dorothy takes fruit for special dieters & also at times I’ve seen Lemons lay too long in banana shed because (I think) someone didn’t want to squeeze fruit!
Forewarned is forearmed. I honestly don’t like to be so critical & I know the kitchen does the best it can but it’s just depressing trying to find fruit & we don’t find it.
I talked to Agriculture minister from the area called “Charity” this week & he gave the names of men I can see for mangoes – So I’ll try very hard to get fruit this week!! If it’s possible, I’ll get fruit!! Somehow
Oh. Jim Holder was extremely friendly. He went out of his way for us & talked, shook hands. I don’t know why, but he since had a different attitude!
Thank God for small changes! (Smile) ha ha
Don’t worry about us – we will be trying for fruit
Give Patricia & Tyrone my love please
See you – take care. Don’t worry. Much love! Patty [Cartmell]
