    MISDEMEANOR

  • My husband was recently watching a tennis match on TV. At the risk of plagiarizing myself, “this man has never participated in a sport at which he did not excel. I on the other hand, have never participated in a sport in which I wasn’t a hazard to myself and others” (Crystanomoly, 2015). In the five years we have been married he has equipped me with various pieces of athletic paraphernalia. He has determined that he will transform his klutzy, baby giraffe into a graceful gazelle; Bless his heart.

  • Local gardens, orchards and farmers markets are bursting with fresh produce, and home canning season is in full swing. If you’re planning to can at home this summer, be sure to use only tested recipes that follow USDA recommendations.

  • One of the most potentially damaging problems facing sweet corn producers is controlling insects that feed on the ear. During the summer months, if you grow sweet corn, you need to watch for corn earworm.
    Earworms are moderately hairy larvae that vary in color from yellow to green to red to brownish-black, but they all have a brown head without markings and numerous microscopic spines covering their body. You may find them feeding in the ear tips following silking. The larvae are cannibalistic, rarely is there more than one per ear or whorl.

    FELONY

  • This is a true story…except for the parts I made up.
    My cousin Pete and I spent our childhood summers on Granddaddy’s farm. He had set aside a pond in the “bottom 40” strictly for frog giggin’. Frog giggin’ is an egalitarian sport—you don’t need to be big or tall to participate or buy a $20,000 boat. All you need is a 5 gallon plastic bucket, a strong flashlight and a 3 pronged gigger; Duct tape the flashlight to the pitchfork and you’re good to go.

  • When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior -- and a manual transmission.
    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.
    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.
