  • Specialty seed catalogs offer variety

    I have learned to be discerning when it comes to catalog shopping.  
    I steer clear of outrageous or cheap deals. I prefer the specialty catalog where expertise reigns providing us with both a good product and the information to grow it well.  
    I shop locally as much as I can, but for some crops we must turn to the catalogs that are filling the mailbox this time of the year.  
    I pour over the pages looking for the odd, heirloom and favorite staple; and I order early because some rare finds are often limited in supply.

  • Churches need ‘Family Day’-like togetherness

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother MUST make seven-layer dip.
