  • Potatoes, garlic and onions:  these three vegetables are staples worldwide largely because of their versatility and their storage-ability.  
    Late July and August is when our spring-planted onions, garlic and potatoes reach maturity and are ready for harvest.  
    If you want to harvest some new potatoes, onions or garlic before they reach maturity enjoy them at the table in short order; however, if you want to store them it is important to harvest them at the correct time.

  • A friend calls it “the Jesus Show,” preachers who stand on street corners in the hot sun and stifling humidity, wearing dress shirts and ties, holding signs with messages like “Repent of your sins” and preaching loudly, often to no one.

    Repent! Repent of your sins!

  • Several weeks ago I went mountain climbing.
    Not really, but I did volunteer to take part in my church’s Project Beautiful work day.
    One of our mission goals is to bring beauty to our community in small ways, be it picking up trash, pulling weeds or painting houses.
    I can’t remember the last time I volunteered to do anything involving manual labor, especially in the hot humidity where I might get sweaty and/or dirty. If it might mess my hair, I tend to avoid it.
