I try to watch some of the coverage from 9/11, and all I can do is cry. Same thing nine years ago: I cry, I pray for those involved, and their families.

We have a very small garden. This year no zucchini – none at all – but we have done very well with yellow crookneck. We have eaten it steamed, boiled, grilled, sauteed, stuffed, fried, baked, microwaved, raw, and in soups. Now, you might think I am tired of it – but I’m not.

So I’m still trying to be as happy as I was when the first one made it from outside into the kitchen.
