“Whatsoever a man sows, that must he reap, and he not only reaps what he sows but he must reap all he sows.  When we plant a seed of good or of evil we are hardly aware how large a tree may grow from it or how much fruit it may bear.” — Wilbur Fisk, Hard Marching Every Day (eds. E. and R. Rosenblatt)

    Mine is a strange orchard, some trees black and twisted and others bearing golden fruit.

    I wish we didn’t have to eat the wormy apples.

    You fry those worms up and they’re a crunchy source of protein. Serve them lightly salted. You can dip them in salsa for a zesty twist. They’re finger-licking good.
