A noncritical view

By Laurena Mayne Davis

For someone who believes in positive reinforcement in raising both kids and pets, I sure do take a critical view of the garden.

Every morning starts with the disapproving once-over. The corn needs top-dressed. The asparagus needs weeded. The bolted spinach bed needs replanted with carrots and cabbage for fall.

Sheesh. You’d think I couldn’t find anything good to say.

That’s why it’s a particular pleasure to gift items from the garden. Putting together the garden bounty in an aesthetically pleasing way makes you fully appreciate the beauty under your own nose — weeds and all.
