The Good and the Bad of Baby Carrots

I read this article today about baby carrots, The Good and the Bad of Baby Carrots. I think it's innovative on the guys part to come up with such a good money making idea.

I Just Don't Have Time To Garden

Sometimes I'm tempted to hire a gardener to help me turn my garden into.... a garden. Because, well... I suck at it. Gardens require time, water and good soil and I haven't given my gardens much of this at all this year. I don't have much of it to give.

For example, this week I was sick. I could barely take care of my kids or go to work. Each time I pass by the garden (walking in the front door) I tell myself I'll be out in a minute to tend to it, but I never do.

If plants are alive in my garden at all it's because they survive on their own. Like my rosemary. What a wonderful sturdy plant. It keeps on giving all year and it smells great and it looks great.

Who am I kidding? I can't afford a gardener. It would be nice though...

She bought me oranges roses and some...

I love my sister. Even when her heart is broken, she extends act of kindness to other. For example, just a few days ago while feeling lonely she went garden shopping. As she's there she give me a call and as we talk she tells me about the amazing sale going on. Then she asks me what I would be interested in. I tell her I'd love some orange or yellow roses, or vegetables for my garden.

A few hours later she shows up at the door, walks me to the trunk of her car and tells me to pick one of the 3 flower bushes (except the purple one) she has in her trunk. I pick the lighter orange one and then she hands me two tomato plants too. I ask her how much I owe her and she says, "Nothing" and she meant it. To pay her would offend her.

I know my sister is struggling financially it was very sweet of her to do. Now when I look at my orange roses I think of m y sister and how much I love her.
