My dad’s birthday is today and last week, I popped some salsa ingredients and plant markers in the mail for him.
He'll have to grow the ingredients himself but gardening is his sweet spot so he won't mind that at all. I know from our daily chit chat that his tomato plants are well on their way to a harvest so he'll be scooping salsa soon enough. My Dad lives in California and starts the new year with seedlings he can get in the ground by early March, so his garden is miles ahead of mine. I get my love of gardening from my Dad, who also passed my way a healthy does of liberal principles. As inheritances go, it’s a pretty good mix. Happy Birthday to the best gardener I know!
