They don't look like much, do they?
Clarence thinks they look like magical buckets, though. A couple weeks ago, he spent quite a bit of time talking with the lady who sells them, asking questions and learning. He seemed very interested in getting some, but wasn't sure he wanted to spend the money. I offered to buy him some as a Father's Day gift, if only he would promise to be surprised.
Clarence has long wanted to try hydroponic gardening so yesterday we picked up a starter kit. Clarence agreed to erase the memory of the purchase and be surprised for Father's Day.
He is hoping the romaine he planted yesterday will do well. He was already checking it today to see if it was growing yet. He's just sure he'll see something by tomorrow.
