Post #8007210

Many years ago, when I lived in Connecticut, I learned that Ruth Stout lived in the next town,
Redding, which was only a few miles away from me. I passed her home many times and
wondered what her backyard garden looked like. Being an organic gardener, my husband
thought I should knock on her door, but I felt I would be intruding. I did not do so, but I'll bet
if I did she would have welcomed me. This is one of my regrets, having the opportunity to
meet Ruth Stout and learn and talk about gardening.

I think it's great that you got to meet her Jeannette. And I regret that you didn't Nancy. That's how it goes sometimes. I bet she would've welcomed you too!
