...I just HAD to tell the gang!

So just a bit ago I'm out back weeding the excuse this year for a garden(never was much about veggies but vine ripe toms are irreplaceable),and up from behind me comes an old housemate who starts chatting with me...casual enough,right? A minute later I notice he's decided to take it upon himself to HELP and it's too late...he's got a handful of vines!


I was gentle on him.

Silver lining is that I took it as a chance to bury them deeper.


You can find the good in the bad! :)

Hi Purp!

...not really I'm afraid.

This guy has no interest in plants and when I tried to explain what he had done his eyes glazed over.

I've seen carp with more lively expressions on their faces. :/

A man must know his limitations.

You can lead a camel to water yada yada yada...
