New York Times Love

The Park Wife Made The New York Times!

I have had about 3, 500 people hop over to my blog to check it out since the article came out. If you came over from the NY Times, welcome new friend.

Please leave a comment and let me know if you have a blog and its address, I would love to go for a visit. If you don't, let me know about your world. Since you have read about where I live, I would love to hear about your life and where you live.

Grateful to my new friend Kim Severson and for juicy watermelons,
The Park Wife

I'm one of those nyt readers who got side-tracked. Just last week I was telling someone how hard it was to find anything but a small melon these days. I grew up in the Bootheel region of Missouri and we spent part of the summers pitching melons, mostly Charleston Grays and to a lesser extent, Black Diamonds. Back then, and then's been a spell, we generally looked to ship 22-25 lbs melons though some buyers wanted 25-28 lbs; since then it's been hard to replicate the taste of a ripe melon that's cracked open in the field and dusted with the salt.

I grew my first watermelon this year. Not knowing what kind it was (I bought it as a seedling) I was surpirsed when a few weeks a little round thing appeared, not much bigger than a softball. I keep expecting it continue to grow, but now I know -- this is it. Guess I'll pick it an eat it. I too miss the black seeds that you spit across the room. Thanks for your account of life in the countryside of Ark.

My aunt sent me the link to your blog since as she saw some similarities in our lifestyle choices. I have very much enjoyed what I have read so far and will keep coming back for more!

It is a great feeling isn't it?! So fun...enjoy!

okay. Well, I do like emptying the dishwasher and folding clothes. I don't like vacuuming and mopping though. I'm the director of an alternative school in Portland, OR. And I have green beans, arugula, dill, and flowers in my garden. I read Eat Pray Love and wrote Eliz Gilbert a fan letter before her book became a best seller, and got an answer! no blog, but wrote a book, Calm and Compassionate Children.

I got the e-mail, thank you! For some reason I can't find the crazy thing in my my inbox to reply back to you. Cute mention of you! So exciting.

We live in the same state! My hubby wants to go into ranging {how I first found your site was googling "park ranger wife" because I wondered what it would be like to be a park rangers wife!} :)

He has been in social work the past 3 years, and wants to return to school to be certified in park management..someday I may be a park ranger's wife too!

I'm one of the people that found your blog through the article.

I actually grew up in the town 10 minutes away from you! I lived there from 1989 to 1997. I live in Oklahoma now, but I still miss living down there. I enjoy the small town life a little more than my husband does ;)

I am really enjoying your blog!
