P.S. You wouldn’t know it from the title, but I wrote a gardening book.
Pete is right. But it’s also time to drag out that quote from Truck: A Love Story: Seed catalogs are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than Enron and Playboy combined. Don’t git yer hopes up.
From Truck: A Love Story, which is about truck love, yes, but also gardening love, library love, food love, and the love of Irma Harding, a woman who never existed: I hear the sizzle in the skillet, and I know Irma knows: no matter how you tweak the parsley, eating remains a carnal activity.
Based on emails, comments, and underlines, this may be the most popular line I’ve ever composed: Seed catalogs are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than Enron and Playboy combined. – Perry, Michael, Truck: A Love Story
