As You Sow is a website shared between Hubby Steve and Daughter in law.  Hubby just sent up a care package to Oregon from Praline's of Prescott including a Vintage Plantations bar that is handmade artisanal chocolate from Vintage Plantations.

Plus, it's wrapped in some beautiful artwork by Charlotta Janssen.
