I've been out of town this week, and I'm really missing my garden. My fingernails look way too nice. I need some dirt under them again. And it's just doesn't feel right when I'm not smelly, sore, and really in need of a shower at the end of the day. Then there's the wondering about what I'm missing- wouldn't it be cool if I could Skype with my plants?
Like most young people, I once thought I would enjoy living in the excitement of the big city. But now I realize I can't even stand it for a week. Yes, there's some containers of beautiful flowers on the sidewalk and a fountain in the square, but it's just not the same as having my own little patch of dirt.
