  • Every so often my husband gets a certain look in his eye and then says, “Before you say no, hear me out.”
    What comes next almost always involves a stepladder, can of spackle, his drill and a huge mess.
    I remember the time he tore the spare bedroom apart and temporarily stored a bed in the front bathroom. For days I muttered, “There’s a bed in my bathroom!”

  • One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly.

    I was charged with inspection duty. Looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the County Extension Service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.
