“When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty.” – George Bernard Shaw
Love it, or leave it the bumper stickers used to say. I bleed red, white and blue. These colors don’t run. WWJD? George Bush and Dick Cheney keeping the world safe for democracy. Shaw is a genuine prophet, witty and ascerbic. We don’t have his equal today, at least none that I know.
The Country Gentleman corn fit neatly into three rows, three feet apart, running east and west. All the little onions are now in a bed by themselves, tucked in for the growing season. The garlic looks great. It’s a strange crop. Sow it in the fall, reap in mid-summer. We have peppers, tomatoes, onions, corn and beans planted. A perfect garden for mexican cuisine. We also have some beets and carrots.
I like these day where we work in the garden in the morning, then it rains in the afternoon. Perfect.
