  • 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.

  • It is amazing how many things you learn after you get married.  For example, it never dawned on me that there was a wrong way to lay out a dish rag.  When I finished doing the dishes, I would just leave the dishcloth in the sink, usually balled up in the corner.  My new bride informed me that I was doing it wrong.

  • 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.

  • Most of us enjoy those picture puzzles where things are hidden in plain sight.  You know the ones I mean, like a picture of a wheat field with a pencil and a fork hidden on the page.  You know it is there, but it is so hard to pick out.

    Then there are optical illusions, I love those too.  You know, where you look at a picture and all you can see is a chair, unless you see the house.  Both are there, but we can only perceive one at a time.
