doodle by andre: how about them tomatoes?
APPARENTLY MRS. ANDRE’S TOMATOES succumbed to “tiny insect things that will not leave our garden alone,” we hear this week from Himself, who very sweetly shared the actual sympathy postcard he drew for Herself on the occasion of her lost tomatoes. “The tomatoes croaked,” Andre Jordan said in his email, using the precise botanical term for what’s been going on in so many of our gardens: croaking. A lot of things croaked here, too, and maybe a custom postcard would have softened the blow. That Mrs. Andre’s a lucky girl, despite the tomato tragedy, don’t you think?
