Emerson Seniors Corner
By Cheryl Wiechern

Plenty of rain interspersed with sun has been good for my garden.  I'm sure glad I got it in when I did.  I planted tomatoes, onions, zucchini, two types of eggplant, basil, rhubarb, marigolds, and a cucumber.  I haven't had good luck with the last few years with cucumber, but I'll try once more.  My son planted 4 types of hot peppers.  I would like to make salsa, but I don't know how many of those hot peppers I will use.  I'm a lightweight when it comes to spicy!
