Come, Mr. Tally Man

14 Mar

While my parents were visiting we decided to utilize the Gramma Green Thumb to get a science project growing.   It is no secret that we need my mother’s expertise if we plan to have even the most meager of gardens, so, the boys, Mom and I set off on a botany field trip.

The excitement upon entering the seed aisles of the local nursery was almost enough to cause spontaneous germination.  The boys were pretty happy to be there, too.  I just drove the van.  The budding gardeners scanned the colorful seed packets, picked their favorites, and then let Gramma Jan help them make final decisions based on what would sprout quickly, and do well in our climate.

Abe was a disappointed to find out bananas didn’t fit the criteria.

    Too bad! It would be so much fun to climb a tree and pick your own bananas!

    One of our kids once asked if we could grow bologna.

    Happy gardening!

    It’s always fruit for the kid, isn’t it? Oh, I miss that little Jack Spratt.

      I can tell you, he misses his wife. He might have a store of meat waiting for her.
