    I’m not sure you can ever have too many tomatoes, but sometimes you may have more than you can use while they still have good quality. Perhaps there are just a few left on the plants and you don’t have the enough or the time and energy to can them. How about quick-freezing?

    Which plants display the showiest, most flamboyant flowers? Some will insist they are the various orchid species. The orchid family truly is a giant group, easily the largest plant family in the world, in terms of number of different species. Orchids as a family cover the earth — almost. They are indeed known from all but the coldest parts of the planet. Many are epiphytic, or growing on the branches of trees, but quite a large number, too, are terrestrial, at home on the ground. Some are even weeds.

  •  Good people, holy people of all ages and in all faiths, usually spend considerable time in prayer. They do their devotionals, or finger their beads, or say rosaries or center themselves in meditation. They attend worship services, listen to sermons, share hospitality or fellowship. They read inspirational books and pamphlets, participate in Bible studies or religiously oriented meetings and workshops. They also encourage others to follow suit, to join them in a search for God.

  •  Navy Lt. Pamela Cole and Air Force Capt. Matthew C. Foss were married May 31 on the beach of Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii.

    It’s Blueberry Month. No, I don’t make this stuff up. There actually was a proclamation from the United States Department of Agriculture back in 1999 that made July National Blueberry Month.
