Back in the day (pre-1980), we grew about an acre of field mums at our west store's ‘mum field’ for fall sales. After a rainy spell like we have been experiencing recently, Dad had us out tending to the plants.
I always look forward to being outside in the summer. There's something freeing about working in the garden in shorts, a short sleeve shirt and floppy hat to keep the sun off.
I always try to listen and plan accordingly to my friend KAKE-TV Meteorologist Frank Waugh when it comes to the weather forecast. When Frank says it’s going to rain, it’ll rain.
