Nice article!!

If I knew Leni was present at Monticello one weekend soon, I'd make the trip. Yup, it's only a 200 mile trip. more than 13 years ago

Tumaro's Tamales

Back in 1976, I began distributing Tumaro's Tamales around California, together with Al Jacobson's Garden of Eatin' products that were quickly becoming very popular. Everyone was interested in new vegetarian foods and the demand for the tamales was soon growing beyond their capacity for preparing them. I wonder if Ms. Sorensen was still involved in that business at that time.

Great Article


Wonderful article on a wonderful woman. Leni always makes me think of my grandmom 'ladybug" who was a great gardener, seamstress, canner and wine maker. You are a woman of many talents, Leni.
