Bring On the Solar Eclipse of 2017 to our Sunny & Rainy & Cloudy Southern Zone of Costa Rica


Welcome to New Readers to our Chayotevine Community and Blessings to All!

Been feeling extremely grateful to be in our peaceful area of Costa Rica ... and am looking forward to the Solar Eclipse on Monday, August 21st. For us here, it will be only Partial. Click here to see more info on timing here in Costa Rica. It will go from 12:04pm to 2:22pm. Was speaking with a friend about the last visible Solar Eclipse here ... it was July 11, 1991. Here is an interesting page on Eclipses of the 20th Century.

From the amazing Amy Schrift: New laminated "No Spraying Agrochemicals in Public Spaces" signs(to reflect the new law passed in Perez Zeledon on April 6, 2017) in Spanish now available at cost: 400 col/half page and 800 col/full page. Excellent for posting on roadsides, schools, pulperias, bus stops, health centers, churches, car dash board or back window, etc. Please see sample at Colibri's Corner.. All proceeds will be used to print and laminate more signs. The municipality of PZ is now working on legislation to deal with offenders. Six municipalities have passed the law to date: Perez Zeledon #1!, Montes de Oca, Belen, Desamparados, Grecia, Sarapiqui. Order signs at pzsano@gmail.com or available at Tinamastes Feria on Tuesdays.

Just got in a supply of fluoride free toothpastes and Lemon Eucalyptus ... excellent against mosquitos! Also Nag Champa Incense & California Sage / Smudge Sticks/

Becca’s Mango Chutney…

Sweet Organic Mangoes and Manzanas Nacionales (Costa Rican Apples) make up the base of this delicious and complex condiment. The addition of Organic Indian Curry Powder, sweet onions, chile dulce, ginger, raisins, apple cider vinegar, organic cane sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon makes for a chutney you can eat straight from the jar. It’s a perfect condiment for any Indian dishes (vegetarian or meat curries especially), a glaze for meat, tofu, or vegetables, and according to one of my customers, it also makes a great vanilla ice cream topping! Definitely something to try if you’d like to brighten up your meal! 100% AWESOME y siempre hecho con amor!
