The humble face of hope

C’mon, little tomato flower (our first one). We’re rooting for you. You can do it! We have faith.

And, do you know what? No matter what happens, all we ask is that you do your darnedest. That’s what counts.

Way to go, little ‘Scarlet Globe’ radishes! Or should I say: Way to grow! You are officially our first harvest. Tonight we enjoyed you with an ice-cold beer. Some of you were kinda small, but you were all delicious. And there’s more where you came from. Hooray for you.

Allo, là, ‘Ruby Red’ lettuce. You’re looking pretty good. You seem to have a bit of a jump on the ‘Grand Rapids’ at the moment, but that’s okay. I’m sure it’ll catch up, and you’ll both be hanging out in our salad bowl. We can’t say: any day now. But soon.

Okay, gang, good job. Keep up that mighty fine work.

  1. I worked for a gardener who said an old boss of hers grew Easter Lilies, and the week or so before Easter, he'd walk around, muttering, "Bloom! Bloom! at them. I'm sure your gentle encouragement is much more effective!
