I was taking a bath just now, thinking about how difficult life will soon become – since the federal government decided to print another trillion dollars into something that equates to monopoly money. The dollar won’t be worth much.
I was wondering if we will be able to feed ourselves when one tomato costs $3.99; an ear of corn is $1.99 and a pound of coffee costs more than your living room sofa.
I decided to declare war. I called my neighbor who has an empty lot next door, and we decided to plant a garden.
Okay, here we go. I know nothing about planting a garden – at least not one you can eat. I know how to produce Iris, Azaleas, and hostas. I’m just not sure I can feed myself.
My son Braddock agreed to help me and he has a great track record. We’re going to start with a salsa garden. Yum.
