Confession: Gardening

One time I ordered a "corner" garden from a magazine. I expected the
plants to come in pots and wondered how they could ship 50+ plants so
cheaply (free shipping). What I got were 50+ tightly bound roots in a
small box. I planted them dutifully following the instructions. Three
months later I was the proud owner of four blooming flowers.

  1. Don't tell me that! Agh!
    I ordered 3 all black elephant ears and some massive hydragaes (it wasn't free shipping though) but they were all SO cheap. Pretty sure I'm still going to be mad if they all die. Despite fair warning.
