Joyce’s gardens

I tend not to write much about the post-divorce life of Schulz’s first wife, Joyce. She deserved a reasonable modicum of privacy. However, in the wake of her recent passing, I thought it worth pointing to something very public that she and Ed Doty (her husband after Sparky) did: They …
