At Central Mall recently, local gardeners got to show off. County Extension Agent Emilee Bean helped record all of the fun and note the winners at the Jefferson County Fruit, Herb and Vegetable Show. Truth be told, they are winners all. A total of 78 entries were judged for quality and uniformity. In my book, each and every one of those gardeners are champs.

I love words. I have always loved words since my Uncle Donald encouraged me to read when I was very young. He brought me books he had found on sale, those given to him, and from the local library. For each book I read and was able to give him enough of a verbal report or the story line, he gave me a small amount of money. If it were a decent size book, I might get a quarter or two. I so looked forward to his visits, the books, and the prizes I earned.
