Yes, I am still here with you

My last column was written in mid-April and here it is mid-May. Several of you have asked about the silence. So, now you have this personal note.

Love means never saying you’re sorry — maybe

There's a few words that are fairly hard to say. "I love you" is usually the hard one for many; I know the ex didn't utter those words until we had been dating about a year. Don't ask why I married that fool. The only explanation I can give is that I love a challenge.

Beware of blossom-end rot

The weather so far this spring has been much better than last year for our vegetable gardens. The light, infrequent rain has been great compared to the excessive moisture of last season. While most of us have recently planted our gardens, we need to get a head start on scouting for problems. A common issue in many vegetable gardens is dark, sunken lesions on the bottom tomato fruit. This is a nutritional disorder called "Blossom-end rot."
