When A Gardener Flies On An Airplane
When the gardener sees that the first plane in her journey is a turbo prop jet, she immediately gives herself the job of watching that propeller to make sure it is always turning.
Once in the air, the gardener realizes that she will be able to see land on the entire trip because this is not a big jet.
Perhaps because she has some agrarian roots this is why she likes to lay out her garden in a similar grid like fashion, at least the vegetable garden.
As the flight continues, she decides to watch for crop circles.
On the second leg of the trip, she realizes that jets fly much faster than turbo props, and higher, too, and there is nothing but clouds to see.
Once she reaches her destination, it is evident why a gardener would leave her garden in the middle of summer, just when the green beans are coming on strong and there is so much squash that she has already given some to three different people.
She has arrived in Buffalo, New York, a city celebrating gardening, the city that Elizabeth of Gardening While Intoxicated and Garden Rant, and Jim of The Art of Gardening, have invited garden bloggers to visit with them for Buffa10, the third annual garden bloggers get together.
