Meet Bonnie ({sweet})

Bonnie joined our family this past weekend.
She is a tomato plant.

The super-enthusiastic (!!!) sales lady gave me these care instructions:

Give it lots of water,
lots of sunlight,
lots of love,
(hope for the best,)
and it should bear some really sweet fruit.

I'm wondering:
was she really giving me advice about the plant
or about my boys in the shopping cart?

I guess it doesn't really matter -
in that regard, the tomatoes and the boys are about the same.
Except, of course, the boys are more delicious.

To see more {sweet}ness, visit Beth's blog. Thanks for the challenge, Beth!

What an awesome tomato-plant grower Ashi is! He is superb. Green thumb. And yes, the boys are by far much more delicious. Love, Auntie AL

We have a couple tomato plants growing and my Asher loves to water them (I think our Ashers are really close in age-June '07 here-and my Asher had hair like your Asher until a month ago but now he has a summer do).
