The tomato blight has hit most of us and the critters have found the corn, but despite the setbacks there has been plenty of good food on the table. Last week the meal included Terri Gris-singer's pork tenderloin (Thank goodness it wasn't a pet.), Steve Grissinger's sweet corn, Uncle Buzz Covert's potatoes, homemade jelly and neighbor Patty Ramsey's cabbage. It doesn't get much better than that. So, as always, there is enough and more.
