Please read Ruth's "The scroll" from last night. I agree with her and that's true of everyone in the community, I'm sure.
A sweet e-mail that I wanted to note from Georgia. I'll share the answers I replied back with. (No, I'm not writing about tonight's big fake speech.)
Artichokes. I love summer because my favorite vegetable is available in large quantities. I love artichokes. My year round favorite vegetable is either corn or tomatoes. (Although I think the latter are fruits.)
Tomato juice. That's my favorite fruit juice. Orange juice does not and has never agreed with me. It gives me heartburn that lingers all day.
Anything. If I had a garden, what would I most like to plant? Anything. Flowers or fruits or vegetables. I would love to have the talent to grow things. (I have enough problems with house plants.)
