While I mask this under the facade that I love gardening (and have had several delightful conversations with fellow gardening aficionados), truth be told, I, simply, love eating organic, seasonal produce. There is nothing I relish more than plucking that ripe cherry tomato fresh off the vine the first thing in the morning, beating all the “cute” beasties animals thieves to it. While I have yet to find damning evidence that there are indeed cherry-tomato-craving creatures competing with me, I have definitive proof that the SNAILS are beating me to the kale. Such an irony eh? Being beaten by the snail of all creatures?
不到兩個星期，我家的植物從兩盆變成七盆，繼羅勒、摩洛哥薄荷和西班牙薰衣草之後，我又買了四個盆栽。今天採購成果：檸檬薄荷（哈哈，好像買錯了，買成 lemon verbena 而不是 lemon balm，可是味道超好）、泰式羅勒、法式薰衣草和薄荷糖薄荷 （peppermint）。哈哈，幾乎全公司都知道我現在的目標就是種植成功香草花園。我自己笑稱，”I am going to be an old lady with plants”。
英文自嘲自己以後可能會成為嫁不出去的老女人就會說，I’ll be an old cat lady 或 an old lady with cats，只有貓的老女人。（特別說明，說這句話其實玩笑成分多過於有惡意）。
