The above is the beginning of a series that appeared a decade ago. The dialog has nothing to do with COVID-19, but I think some of what is said harmonizes with discussions we’re going to be having among ourselves, especially as the pandemic drags on. Probably, “Gen-X fad” would have been more accurate. A lot of members of the baby boomlet were attracted to an agrarian existence, and some are still at it. Their moment may have come. I, myself, gave up on gardening, because I’m so awful at it. In fact, when I think about it, this series originally coincided with the peak of my gardening phase. That said, I am going to give it another go this spring. It won’t be anything large or ambitious, but it will be something to do, and with any luck at all perhaps I’ll get a few tomato sandwiches out of it. If you do follow the link and read the entire series, which I hope you will, stick around for the Sunday. It’s cute.
