I love Reader's Digest and I found a June 1988 issue in my husband's study. I found this cute article.
I was probably the only person in our rural town who didn't have a vegetable garden. Finally, I decided to start a tiny plot and planted peas. As I finished, my neighbor - a native to the area - dropped by. "What'd you plant?" he asked, nodding at my freshly dug plot.
"Peas," I answered proudly.
"You forgot the headstones."
"I did?" I asked weakly, wondering what headstones were.
"You've planted those peas so deep," he said, shaking his head, "they deserve a proper burial."
Being a city girl, I wouldn't have known any better myself.
