Gearing up for the beginning of the internship, I start thinking about planting a garden of my own. I initially think I'll plant a few tomato plants. (You know you are in-experienced when you are asking someone to borrow a shovel, and then how much to dig? how big the stakes should be? How much compost? If I put seeds in the ground are plants really going to grow? It just seems like an impossible miracle!)
I spend 2 hours one afternoon (this is the time I was in flip-flops) digging a trench about 6'x2.' God Bless the ditch diggers is all I can say because that was the hardest work I've ever done. Ever.
