    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jun 19, 2019

    “I’m Buster Brown. I live in a shoe. Arf! Arf! That’s my dog Tige. He lives in there too.” This little rhyme came to my attention the other day.

I had a bunch of flexible hoops (coated fiberglass rods) and a couple long swaths of thin white cloth that I had used over my strawberry row years ago. I repurposed those items to protect the bean crop. I even extended it to cover the newly sprouting lettuces. I’m hol...
