Editor, "It's Just for a Smile News"
With all the experience we got in our Dad's, E P's one-acre garden, you would think you could have a better tomato crop!
When Glinda lived in the Rice addition our house was next to Colby & Wayne Pickett - two of the best people I know.
Glinda and I decided to grow a couple of tomato plant in our back yard and had told the Picketts about this. We had decided that we would be very diligent in watering and our use of Miracle Grow and were actually doing pretty good at remembering to do this chore.
Colby, not having much faith in our gardening abilities, was coming over every morning and watering and of course giving them a good dose of Miracle Grow! One morning for some reason I looked out the back window and I finally saw him taking care of our tomatoes; we got two tomatoes off the plants that were unfit to eat!
But it's good to have great neighbors like Wayne & Colby to have around!
Just thought you might enjoy this because you being raised as a city boy like me and of course, not knowing the facts of farming like our country cousins did! - Ralph Roy Waggener
