patincornAlthough last issue—our 20th Anniversary Special—was, indeed, truly special (I can’t recommend it too highly), the more time I spend with this Summer Issue, the more I think it might be even better! Both thePat in Corn first and last stories are such wonderful reminders of what’s really important in life. So, too, are the tulip and bluebird pieces. There’s wonderfully gentle humor in the tomato and garden-girl stories. A perfect little moment in the green apple tale. And, frankly, the last line of the garden apocalypse story—that one sentence is worth the cost of the whole magazine.

And then there’s . . . and . . . and . . . hey, I told you that I’m fond of this one!
