Janice Riley, this garden is for you

You died and it is terrible. I can’t make it to the funeral–but you wouldn’t know if I did. So, I spend this lovely early fall morning working in my garden.  Planting a few fall vegetables and I can’t get you out of my head. I remember , so clearly, when I was lucky enough to have you make me NDO Community Services Director. One of NDO’s long standing and popular programs was the garden program   I never understood why that seed program which enabled people to have vegetable gardens was so popular. Yet, today, I am here in my little vegetable garden just as happy as can be– loving the dirt, the plants, and you.  This garden is for you old friend.
