Residents in Bryan County and the surrounding areas who are ready to stock up on fresh veggies, handmade crafts, live plants and more won't have to wait for long as farmers markets in both Pembroke and Richmond Hill open next week.
I like food. Actually, I love food. And I reasoned that since I gave up all my youthful vices and indiscretions, I should at least be allowed to eat what I want and as much as I want.
When I was growing up, potato dishes were always an Easter-dinner staple in our home. Baked, mashed, fried, au gratin or in a casserole - they were always present in some form on the Easter buffet. However, mashed potatoes were always the most popular complement to our Easter ham.
If I had an entrepreneurial spirit (and budget), there are some natural fragrances that I think should be bottled and sold as perfumes, after-shave lotions and air fresheners. I'm not talking about floral scents like orange blossoms, gardenias or honeysuckle, which already have been marketed.

One sure sign of spring is the availability of fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables in downtown Hinesville.
The pineapple is without a doubt the iconic image of Hawaii. But the tasty tropical fruit was introduced to the islands and originally calls South America home.
There is a dearth of cookbooks featuring recipes for Northern fried chicken.
Science long has known that potassium is needed for muscle control.
The supply of last summer's corn, butter beans, purple-hull peas, field peas, green beans and speckled butter beans that my wife and I put away in the freezer is starting to dwindle.
The large billboard could be seen half-mile away when traveling north on I-95, near the town of Dunn, N.C. The colorful ad depicted a large dinner plate with two eggs over-easy, several slices of bacon and a generous portion of good ol' Southern grits.
It's hard to imagine that 240 years ago, American colonists drank tea - not sweet tea, but English tea.
This column, "Around the Table," has celebrated a number of foods the so-called experts tell us are bad. I quietly but forcefully tell these control freaks to leave me alone. I'll eat what Georgia boys have been eating since 1733. I have a wife and a mama; I don't need a nanny.
