On a lighter note for a Friday:
More and more these days, I catch myself telling friends things like "I
have powdery mildew," or "I'm really infected with aphids this week," or
"Oh, man, this end blossom rot's gonna kill me." Imagine the wonderful
responses I often get from my quicker friends!
So I'm wondering if I'm starting to identify with my plants a little too
much. But if I am, that's okay; I don't care. It's just interesting and
pretty funny to notice statements like that coming out.
So would any folks care to post *their* oddball or funny statements or
thoughts that only a maybe-too-involved gardener would make?

P.S. I once told a friend that when I die I want them to compost me and
then double-dig me in under the roses; I'm still not sure that I was fully
joking, but that's another story for another day.
