Alfredo and I leave for a trip to Morocco this weekend for about a week and a half and as the excitement builds daily so does my anxiety about leaving the garden. Of course, Tom is here and has promised to water and tend to the plants; but will he talk to them as we do?... will he play them music?... will he pick their weeds?!
In reality I know that Tom will take good care of the garden, he is as dedicated to it as we are and now it is his turn to get his hands dirty, but it sure is hard to turn the job over. I feel like I'm leaving my "kids" with the babysitter. I'm finding myself making lists of things not to forget to tell Tom. Is there a garden 9-1-1 I should put on the emergency contacts list?!
