I wasn't able to say goodbye to you because you were far away, and I was afraid to fly and leave the baby home without me. I know you understand because Mommy told me you didn't fly when they were younger. But I am saying goodbye to you now. I know that you were a wonderful, caring grandfather. You also got to see a great grandson which not to many people are able to do. I wanted to call you on the phone and have Nana hold the phone to your ear so I could say goodbye but you had already passed away. I will always love you and rest in peace.
Love and Miss you terribly,

Before the cool weather sets in, enjoy the bounty of your herb, flower and vegetable gardens by giving a Summer Harvest Tea Party. Plan your theme around the garden, invite friends and family. Don't make it a formal affair, but rather a way to celebrate everyone's gardens and share produce, flowers, seeds and advice.
Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
