The Garden

I ran by the North Jefferson News today to pitch my weekly columns. The paper has a new editor and she seems delightful. 
I dropped off a copy of my book and some recent columns for her to look at. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It's my intention to shop all the local papers around where I live. If anyone has a suggestion of a paper where my columns might fit, please let me know.
I spent the morning planting. I planted about twenty pepper plants, some onions, purple hull peas, and some brussel sprouts.
We planted cucumbers, squash, and zucchini earlier this week and some of that is already coming up. 
Of course we planted a ton of herbs. Jilda uses a lot of herbs in the dishes she prepares.  Basil, chives, sage, and others I can't spell.
I should have more time for tending this year.  I tell you, I can't wait until I can take a shaker of salt out there in the garden and eat a ripe tomato right off the vine. You haven't lived until you've done that.
Also, if there is a better summertime meal that a tomato sandwich, I'd like to eat it. I can tell you, it would have to be some kind of good to knock the tomato sandwich off the pedestal.
So until things "come in" all I can do is walk down there every day, lean on the fence and watch it grow.
