I hang my head in shame.
Hey! Look at that! I need a pedicure!
Distracted for a moment. Back to head hanging in shame and not looking at toenails.
I am greedy because yesterday I went to Home Depot and bought this wonderful bounty of flowers to plant in the garden... I brought them home and hauled them back to the garden.
And I got annoyed.
I know it's wrong.
But I need a farm. I want a farm! I demand a farm!
How can I possibly have only a few plants???? I need more plants, more space, more garden, more roses...
There are too many amazing and gorgeous varieties and I need them all. I want them all. I demand them all.
How can I possibly go to Swan Island Dahlias and not buy each of the 14,312 varieties they offer ...
How can I go to Park Seeds and not buy enough seeds to plant an acre of this... Here's what the catalog says about this corn...By far the sweetest-tasting corn ever grown, and also the most tender! 76 days. Its name means "the future is almost here," but once you taste your first bite of Mirai® Bicolor Corn, you'll know that's wrong -- the future IS here, and its name is Mirai! This ultra-supersweet corn is so sugary and succulent that it gives new meaning to the term "caramel corn"!
And to make it even worse it comes in yellow and white varieties!
See what I mean?
That is three acres of corn!
Which means I need a farm. I want a farm! I demand a farm!
Sure I know I'm supposed to be happy with what I have. And I do have nice gardens. Really I do.
But they can only accomodate 1/1,000,000,000th of the seeds and plants I need to try. I want to try. I demand to try!
I already have 5 acres planted on my imaginary farm and I haven't even told you about my obsession with zinnias, sweet peas, larkspur, asters, tomatoes, heirloom vegetables...etc., etc., etc.
See what I mean?
I am greedy.
And I am ashamed.
And I need a pedicure.
And no matter what people say CONFESSION IS NOT GOOD FOR THE SOUL!
Because I still don't have a farm.
