You have no idea how much I look forward to reading your Aunt Bett stories; I will once again urge you to put them in a book.

Now you know, Susie...keep it handy for when you are in church.

Actually it really does work, as I recently found when I sliced into a tomato.

Great article, Sharran--I've come to love Aunt Bett, as well as stories about your youthful self in Kentucky.
I've got a lot of yellow yarrow (that's fun to spell!) whose flower-heads have now turned a deep brown. Is there any benefit to leaving the flower-heads up for birds or other creatures? Otherwise, I'll deadhead and compost 'em, especially now that I know the leaves also are good for compost!

I just stepped out to check mine, also brownish tan, and there is no value left that I know of, course if it were 50 years ago I'd have mine saved to add to fall decorations. Still might, now that I think about it.

Yellow Yarrow would be even worse to say! Aunt Bett would say "yeller yarra"...

Thanks CC. Always nice to hear from you.

I third the motion from DL1 and S2. I've only been on DG for a couple of months and have come to love Aunt Bett and also look forward to your stories. My mom's family is from eastern Tenn. and I can imagine their lives there through your eyes. Thank you.

Hi Jan, nice to know you have mountain roots, and yes, east Tennessee was right down the road from us, not much difference.
Hello to your Mom's family from me, and thank you so much for writing.
