2014-05-27 16.09.54This goes out to Leigh and Paul, long suffering souls of the VA system. Leigh, if you remember was given the bum’s rush on a copy of her c-file for over a year until she went to the CAVC and filed a Write of Mandamus to obtain it. When she did get it, it was incomplete. It makes the Phoenix VAMC snafu look like a wrinkle in the sheet in comparison.

Thus I want to thank them both for the gazillion seeds they sent me this year for the garden. I planted all of them and am donating the balance to the local nursery and to other local Vets desirous of having gardens this year.


Additionally, I neglected to mention I planted Marine lettuce this year. Seriously. It’s a strain specifically created on Parris Island I’ve had great success with.

    Recently I asked my 97-year old personal trainer what the secret of her longevity was and without a blink, she responded “I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.” She’s walking proof that even if you don’t have a greenhouse, you can go veggie. (She also runs a twice weekly exercise program that you can sweat to if you’re doing it right!)
