Balcony garden gambling

Life is full of gambles that may or may not pay rewards:

  1. Taking on student debt for an advanced degree
  2. Marriage 
  3. Cross-country moves for jobs
  4. Letting spouse take the Sam's Card
  5. Signing a lease
  6. Buying a used car
  7. Home ownership, for heaven's sake!

So buying a $9.99 tomato plant and matching eggplant at Calloway's Nursery on Memorial Day weekend seemed like a perfectly responsible purchase. So far, so good!

Never would have put money on the cut-off top of a pineapple, but it's determined to finish first in its second year.
