A happy Father's day

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.


  1. Magical buckets you say??? Can't wait to see how they work...keep me posted!!!
    Men seem to have the most interesting hubby asked for "light" shoes. Light shoes??? I think he meant Crocs for least that's what he got! ..and he seems happy with them.

    Hope you had a wonderful day with your family :)


  2. Intriguing. I have never seen these, where did you find them, and what are the little round brown things? Happy Fathers day to my favorite big brother:>)

  3. Hope you let us know how they work out for you all!

  4. How fun is that! Keep us updated..pretty please!
