Editor’s Note

Spring is the time when buds pop out on trees, robins appear, and it is time to plant the garden. My friend Laura K., cherishes a piece of paper with the following advice from her mother. Her mama was obviously a very smart woman for all seasons!

“It is only the farmer

who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps

a harvest in the Autumn.”

B.C. Forbes
