  1. Congratulations! I’m pleasantly surprised by the new wave of interest in all things Southern.

  2. You have a “magic” in your writing that makes it possible for me to “see” exactly what you’re describing. This is one of those magical “seeing” pieces. I enjoyed it so much & sharing your trip into the corn.

  3. Congratulations!!! Well done Stuart!

  4. We used to do corn too, but not as fancy as y’all! I could smell the butter and feel the heat. This made me miss summer…

  5. Best wishes on your new start as a writer for that publication.

  6. Congratulations Stuart – your storytelling will be a wonderful contribution to all things southern.

  7. Congratulations. I think they made a good choice.

  8. Congrats on your new endeavor!

  9. I tried to leave a comment at the magazine but “Blocked as suspected bot.”

    I’ve never been suspected as being a bot before 😉

    I got blocked too. Loved the story.

  11. That’s great, congratulations!

  12. Too bad my comment with the magazine was “blocked as a suspected bot!” What? Was I too glib?

  13. Congratulations! That’s awesome!

  14. HI Stuart, Congratulations. I loved your story/memory-it brought back many for me of gardens long gone. I can see you there with your cousins on that porch. So sweet. Except the snake part. When she said snaky did she mean…snakes? Or something else? “Lord it’s Snaky in here” wouldn’t have been what came out of my mouth. I was also blocked as a possible bot on the Southern Roots site.

  15. Congratulations, Stuart, on your publishing success! Warm greetings and best wishes from Canada! Peter

  16. I also tried to leave a comment, and am a suspected bot. So I’ll leave my comment here instead 😉
    I loved the story – felt like I was right there, doing corn. Which is strange because it’s something I have never done, and I am actually on an entirely different continent 😉 Your writing is fantastic!
    It’s stories like these that grow my bucket list – the South is a place I need to visit 😉
    Thank you for this…. and congratulations! 🙂

  17. Congratulations and best wishes!

  18. Your article brought back a lot of childhood memories of growing up in rural East Tennessee. Thank you! (I tried to comment on the magazine’s page, but my comment for some reason was blocked as a questionable source.)

  19. Loved it. I could almost feel the heat of the day and taste the corn!

  20. Loved this story! I didn’t grow up in the country but I live here now and I’ve done my share of corn over the years!

  21. That’s great news! CongratZ!

  22. This is awesome! Well deserved.

  23. Congratulations!

    It’s so wonderful that you grew up with such a cohesive and caring family! Many of your stories stem from those experiences and how they informed your relationships in the family you have with your children.
