    Actually I wish I had a garden. I use the office plants as a place to do my "yard work." It is amazing how important this is to me. I try to garden when I''m home visiting my parents.

    I love gardening, it's one of the hobbies I've

    had since I was little. I was thinking one day maybe I could invite the little girl next door to help me somedays. I'm sure she'd love that.

    We transplanted the little tomato plant into one of those hangy-upside-down-thingies that they are always advertising on TV.   We have VERY VERY clever raccoons around our neighborhood, and I would not put it past them to be able to cut into the wire plant cages that...
