Dear Mom,
For most Hoosiers, the month of May in Indiana means the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race and all of the excitement that goes along with it.   But not me.  For me, it means planting the garden...which means firing up the tiller and working the soil until it is dark brown and weed-free.  Love it, love it, LOVE IT!!  I can't describe the feeling it brings, but I'm willing to bet you know the feeling....a sense of pride, accomplishment and empowerment!  It is mostly because there is just something about operating Rhonda Honda.  She may not be a full-size rototiller, but she is a power tool nonetheless.  She is my stress management therapy.  As far as power tools go, every gal should have one of these.

This year, I am planting a "salsa garden" so I can make lots and LOTS of Wendy's Salsa, which by the way, happens to be the best salsa ON THE PLANET.  Along with the tomatoes, peppers, garlic and onion, I also planted a few rows of green beans and some cucumbers.  I have never put in a garden without cucumbers and I can't imagine a summer without fresh cucumbers to snack on before dinner.


Love, Bonnie Jo
