Growing On The High Plains: Memory Of My Mother ... And Sun-dried Tomatoes

CC0 Public Domain

Today’s Growing on the High Plains features an anecdote about my late mother and her unfortunate encounter with a peculiar addition to her artisanal sandwich. From all of us at HPPR, we wish all the mothers out there a joyous and restful holiday!

Years ago Skip Mancini left the rocky coast of Northern California to return to her roots in the heartland. Her San Francisco friends, concerned over her decision to live in a desolate flatland best known for a Hollywood tornado, were afraid she would wither and die on the vine. With pioneer spirit, Skip planted a garden. She began to learn about growing not only flowers and vegetables, but hearts and minds. If you agree that the prairie is a special place, we think you'll enjoy her weekly sojourns into Growing on the High Plains.
