BECAUSE THAT'S THE KIND OF GARDENER I AM

I am looking with fascination at the large red blister which has appeared, Christlike, on the palm of my right hand. In my left hand is my shiny new hoe. Lying on the ground at my feet are two tall strong stems attached to thick meandering roots which I've ripped from the earth, after having lovingly nurtured, watered, and religiously fed them these past four months.

Today I learned something new; the difference between plants and weeds.
