What a great Christmas gift!

I think having a big garden is the one thing we take for granted out here in the West Virginian country. When I think about my cousins stranded in big cities like that, it makes me appreciate what we have.

This year, I'm going to plant a tomato in your honor, Buddy Don. Of course, your always more than welcome to come down and get one or at least get some salsa after we do some canning this September.
