  • Well, we can certainly say it was a pleasant summer season so I am definitely not complaining… but it wasn’t the best year for tomatoes. Cool and wet is good for some, but not for the prized tomato.

    As you know, I only grow heirloom varieties because of the fabulous selection and range of flavors.

  • At sunrise, our family crawled into our trusty Woody Bus.  Though sleepy, I was excited about our adventure. I knew with the challenges of camping that I needed my strength.  “Dad, before we leave town, can we run through the drive-through?  I’ve a hankering for a bacon sandwich.”

    “Woody, we haven’t left the driveway! Besides, we won’t be eating fast-food or stopping at restaurants. We’ll be having picnics with the food we packed.”

  • My golden opportunity! My chance to shine! My time to show my family that I’m a warrior, a champion, a real sportsman, uh, sportsdog!

    I’m sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Mr. Dogwood, but my friends and family call me Woody. (Sometimes I’ll hear “Dogwood” if I’ve made a knucklehead decision or if my parents are trying to get my attention.) Anyway, I’m a black and tan miniature wiener dog who lives in the great state where I was born – Kentucky. That makes me “Woody, The Kentucky Wiener.”
