The one where we catch Kiri eating vegetables...

Okay, not really eating them. More like planning to grow them in our yard and THEN eat them. But I'd have to wash them first. (In homage to Lucy from Peanuts - UCK! Bug spit!) And drown them in 3 inches of Ranch dressing.

If you ever thought growing things in your yard was this benign, thoughtless process... well, let's just say you're wrong. There's all kinds of marketing ploys involved. Such as:
"Our seeds are better! You'll get more plants."
"Who cares about more plants? Ours don't taste like crap. Straight up, yo."
"Who cares what it tastes like? We can help you grow a carrot the size of a redwood tree... if you buy our really expensive organic seaweed fertilizer and this red plastic stuff to put around your plant after the seeds germinate in 14-26 days and the plant has been sown indoors for at least 60 days before setting outside after the frost-free date. Holidays not included."

Oh, and you haven't heard the worst of it. They all have fancy names. A radish can't just be a radish. It has to be something catchy, like a Fire and Ice Radish. Or the Thumbelina Carrot. ::sigh:: It was so much easier when I was planting stuff in plastic containers and drip watering them with Gatorade bottles.

Reveling on Ravelry

Got an invite tonight! WOO HOO! If you haven't already, come play. I'm glued to the computer now because it's JUST. TOO. INTERESTING. In that fiber nerd sort of way.
