  • It was a good day for a baptism, a warm Wednesday evening about two years ago.
    Her name was Minnie and she lived by a lake. She had invited her Methodist pastor and all her friends to come to her baptism, right there at the lake where she lived.
    She joked that she had a pile of rocks at the water’s edge to throw at the alligators in case they got too curious or hungry.
    Thankfully, she didn’t need them.

  • After the heat-wave in late May the blueberries ripened like wildfire, the Colorado potato beetle larva peppered the Pontiac potato patch and the cabbage worms nearly devoured my kale.  
    I pick and squish and drown but so much was happening at once I needed a little assistance.  
    As you know, I do not use chemical pesticides in the vegetable garden. I will reach for a bio-insecticide if I must, however.  
    Bio-insecticides include plant oils and compounds, naturally occurring bacteria, viruses and protozoa.
