Growing Season

Friday, April 4th, 2014

My granddaughter and I were at a local nursery buying seeds for our garden. As we were leaving, we passed through the pesticide section and Layla stopped in her tracks. She pointed excitedly to a box of snail bait and exclaimed, “Grandma! We can grow our own snails!”
