(Sun photos by James Mann) Leon Castle of Carolina Avenue, right, stopped by to visit with John Hendricks and to look over the pumpkins and other fall produce available from his Beech Springs Farm Market this week. Hendricks, and his wife, Mary Beth, have nearly everything needed to decorate a yard for Halloween including pumpkins, cornstalks, mums and straw. An old wagon, bottom photo, was full of pumpkins and other produce grown on the Hendricks' farm. The farm market is located on the Old Boonesboro Road at Forest Grove.

Your spring pansies will be even more spectacular if you set out plants in early fall. This gives plants time to become well established before cold winter weather. Fall planting will reward you with three seasons of colorful blooms. You should have some blooms from now until Christmas and again from late February to late March, depending on winter and spring weather. The peak show will be from about mid-April to mid- to late-spring. Summer heat causes a decrease in flower production and size as plants start to decline in mid- to late-June.

Dear Editor: In his letter of Sept. 30, Professor Martin speaks of Professor Cooney's article about the administration's inept response to Hurricane Katrina as "a bridge too far. " "A bridge too far" refers to one's resources being stretched too thin by trying to do too much. I don't see how this could apply to Professor Martin's views of Professor Cooney. I suspect Professor Martin means "the straw that broke the camel's back" or, more tersely, "the last straw. " As for more substantive matters, it does not seem to me that Professor Cooney hates George Bush and conservatives, wants the war in Iraq to fail, or is claiming to speak for Centre College.

I'm down to the wire writing this column. Gah. Poor planning on my part. Or lack of focus. That whole "attention span of a gnat" thing. Or maybe just a wandering mind. I hadn't made it to the grocery in a while to get a new stash of citrus green tea for my afternoon caffeine/sugar boost, so I was toting tea from home. It was jasmine green tea in a see-through plastic thing with what essentially is a straw on top. There's even a little sliding piece that goes over the straw to hide it that somebody's trying to patent.

Last week, I wrote about wolf anatomy and how these animals have evolved to keep them from getting frost-bitten even in the Arctic weather. This week is a good time to see what we can do to protect our pets in winter weather. For dogs that spend most of their days outdoors, a shelter must be provided. After researching the various kinds of dog shelters, I planned my own using the ideas from a number of sources. I also used materials that I had on hand which helped with the expense.
