I enjoy gardening when it is not too hot (as it is in Princeton now), but I am not very successful at it. In fact, the heat and lack of water when we were away in July has killed a number of plants I had nursed along for several years, including two Ponderosa pines that I had grown from small shoots. Oh, well, it’s the exercise that counts, I keep telling myself.
So, with my miserable gardening record is is a delight to note that my brown thumb has not been inherited by all in the family. Nell’s plants looked great the last time I saw them, and now we hear that Joe and Rita are having a bumper crop of blueberries. So bumper, apparently, that it is attracted media attention! Take a load of this item from the Roane County News:
Way to go!
And thanks for all those blueberries we got when we came by in July!
