    To the editor:



    Winter, believe it or not, is a good time to prepare fruiting crops for the season ahead.

    On the next warm day it is very important for us to get some work done to insure a nice fruity harvest this summer. Many fruit diseases can be partially controlled by being vigilant with cleanup and fungicidal sprays at proper times.

    Also, remember pruning should take place in late February on fruiting trees.



    I have a handful of phalaenopsis about the house and three of them have just begun to shoot up a bloom spike that once in bloom (probably still about a month away) will bloom for months if I keep them out of direct sunlight.

    One plant is like 10 fresh cut bouquets and they are so delicately lovely you just can’t beat them as a nice Valentine gesture!



     “How do you come up with all those recipes?”

    People ask me this all the time, and there are lots of answers. Here’s one.

    Last week I had some three-day-old bread I needed to do something with. I make bread every week, and if it starts to get stale, I usually make croutons or crumbs or something so as not to waste it.
