(lettuce in our garden)

I think an economy should be based on thrift, on taking care of things, not on theft, usury, seduction, waste, and ruin.

~ Wendell Berry ~

from his poem "Some Further Words"

And lettuce. It should be based on lettuce.

Beautiful lettuce. Should make a pretty salad.

The simplest things give so much pleasure. Yes to an economy of thrift and care. Yes to lettuce. And as a wee child, it wasn't uncommon for me to snicker when the preacher said, "Lettuce pray." All right, I admit, I'm kidding. I knew what he meant, but I liked to play with words even then, and did snicker when I twisted it that way.
