  • Once again, we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall.  
    I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.  
    We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.

  • When I was about 10, my family lived in southern Louisiana. Hot and humid were understatements for the climate during the summer. We lived in a mobile home, in an open field, and the only a/c was in my parent’s room.
    Sleep was miserable, especially for a roly-poly who sweats sitting still. The infamous line in our home was, “Go to sleep and you won’t be hot.”  

  • Although I’m not a huge fan of doughnuts -- they’re not sweet enough for me to justify ingesting all those calories -- as soon as I walked into work the other day, I made a beeline for the box of Dunkin Donuts leftover from the day before.
    Before I knew it, one of them made its way from the box and into my mouth.
    I didn’t want to eat it, but I did anyway.
