What fun! This could have been me. One year I had a pretty decent corn crop under one of my bird feeders. You did a great job telling this story.

Fun read. I can picture the garden. I also am a murderer of plants, so I can relate to this.
I loved "wily weed and fainting flowers"--great description. I couldn't believe the squirrels didn't take over. We have an ongoing war with squirrels at the bird feeder, and for right now, we're ahead. I laughed at the cat watching because we had a fat cat who would sit under our feeder and admire and scheme. I loved this.

Heh. I like this. There's one plant (I can't remember which one... Mint, maybe??) that my uncle used to joke that you plant it, and then jump back! This reminds me of that.
Oh this is a hoot! I can't keep plants alive either, but I do get some corn and sunflowers growing from my birdfeeders. I can't let my husband read this because as we look to downsize, he wants nothing to do with HOA. This is a nice modern take on the parable. I personally like Weeds, but then Jesus once told me I was a dandelion... Great take on the topic, funny, and a good message too.

Descriptive and well written. A fun read although I wasn't sure how the topic worked out.
Congratulations on your EC! Happy Dance!
