  • Potato planting begins mid-March

    Spring break from teaching at U of L falls conveniently during the week of St. Patrick’s Day and when I always plant out my seed potato for the year.
    While I always manage a mid-March planting, we must consider the condition of the soil.  Don’t start digging if the soil is too wet. Be patient and only work once the soil is friable.
    Select potato varieties that compliment the way you cook. The most versatile varieties include favorites like Yukon Gold and Red Cloud.

  • Coming full circle with the worst breakups

    When I was 12 I went steady with Paul Minardi.
    He gave me his blue St. Christopher’s medal, which is what boys gave their girlfriends back then, back before St. Christopher was de-sainted.
    I don’t remember how long we went steady, only that he broke up with me and shattered my 12-year-old heart.
