    A week or so ago, I spoke at a fundraising event for the George Washington Carver Community Center in Crystal River, Florida, near where I live.
    The center is built on the footprint of the historic all-black George Washington Carver School.
    I spoke to them about hope.
    On Thursday, I also spoke about hope to some ladies at a local Presbyterian church.

    I suspect you would too.

  • Tomatoes like it warm

    I have patiently waited for some summer-like heat to arrive before planting my pepper and tomato plants.  Now that the forecast calls for warm spring nights the coast is clear for summer vegetables.  
    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.  
    First thing first: Always wait until our frost-free date (on average this is May 10, give or take a week depending on where you are located).
