  • I received a letter from a reader years ago that asked somewhat of a philosophical question regarding determinate tomatoes.  
    Yes, philosophical, because she asked why would we plant a tomato that sets its fruit, reaches a certain point, stops growing, ripens nearly at once and then dies?
    Our love affair with homegrown tomatoes would more logically dictate that we grew only indeterminate tomatoes that reached monstrous proportions and yielded fruit into a first killing frost.

  • Do you ever wonder what brings people to church?
    Not just on Christmas and Easter or Mother’s Day because it’ll keep your mom off your back, but week after week week -- willingly. Because you want to.
    Chances are, many of you who are reading this attend church regularly, although some of you don’t.
    If you don’t, do you ever wonder why others do?

  • Who among us is guilty of not noticing something until it’s too late?  Yes, all of a sudden there is nothing left of your blue spruce or arborvitae. Bagworms have been munching on the needles for weeks and we wonder how it all happened.  Well, they are at work right now so go outside and take inventory of your evergreens because that’s what the bagworm likes the most. Now is the time they do their damage unless we put a stop to it.
