Make the “short rows” count

I used a version
of this in my last newspaper column. I believe it is also appropriate here. I suppose a lot
of you, like me, were brought up on a farm. Younger ones likely still can’t
relate to it because methods of tending crops have changed. Back in my day, we
grew large fields of corn and big gardens which were hand planted and weeds
were periodically removed using a hoe.
