Above is a pink dogwood in Jim's yard. The dogwood trees have been beautiful this year.

Below is a photo of one of Jim's Azalea bushes.


" Measure twice- Saw once ".. This is the policy of all good carpenters , I am now making that my policy in talking. Think twice before I ever open my mouth. My talking has caused me so much trouble in the past. I remember what James says about the tongue in his writing.

Good Morning.

I hope that all is well with you this Monday morning. You know that it is the day that I like the best, I am anxious to get to working producing Tomatoes, Rose and Smiles. I am feeling real good this morning, even smiling here at this early hour.

The weather looks much better this morning We started the day off with a 48 degrees and we are promised a 78 with no rain, now that would make any tomato produce at least grin a little.

A few of my plants have arrived and I may get a few in the ground this morning.


"James Crane worked on the 101st floor of Tower 1 of the World Trade Center. He is blind so he had his golden retriever named Daisy. After the plane hit 20 stories below, James knew that he was doomed, so he let Daisy go, out of an act of love.

She darted away into the darkened hallway. Choking on the fumes of the jet fuel and the smoke James was just waiting to die. About 30 minutes later, Daisy comes back along with James' boss, who Daisy just happened to pick up on floor 112.

On her first run of the building, she leads James, James' boss, and about 300 more people out of the doomed building. But she wasn't through yet, she knew there were others who were trapped. So, highly against James' wishes she ran back in the building. On her second run, she saved 392 lives.

Again she went back in. During this run, the building collapses. James hears about this and falls on his knees into tears. Against all known odds, Daisy makes it out alive, but this time she is carried by a firefighter. "She led us right to the people, before she got injured" the fireman explained.

Her final run saved another 273 lives. She suffered acute smoke inhalation, severe burns on all four paws, and a broken leg, but she saved 967 lives. Daisy is the first civilian Canine to win the Medal of Honor of New York City.

I hope you enjoyed this story. I thought it was terrific." DAD.

Good Morning DAD...

I write with tears in eyes after reading the story of Daisy. She definitely earned her Medal of Honor. She is a "Golden Retriever".

With tomato plants ready for the ground and nice weather to work in the garden, you will be outdoors most of the day. Be careful not to get too much sun. Have fun in the dirt!
