Happy Memorial Day. Thank you to all who have served our country.
I honor this day in a bit of a strange way. I always plant my tomatoes on Memorial Day. What on earth might that do with honoring the memory of veterans, you ask?
Well, for years, I used to plant tomatoes with my Dad, who was a World War II vet. Even after we gardened in different places, I still grew tomatoes for him and, if I had to, I shipped them to him.
He will be gone 17 years this summer, but the tomato planting always helps me to remember him–& all veterans.
As a bonus this year, my poppies opened this weekend too. Very fitting.
