Depression Affects Plants Too!

You know that silly commercial about depression? "Where does depression hurt? Everywhere. Who does depression hurt? Everyone." Yeah, well, the latter includes plants, too.

I know things are weighing on me when the garden starts to look a bit droopy.... I even lost a wee baby cucumber to the great I-don't-wanna-have-to-do-anything-when-I-get-home-from-work drought of 2007.

Seeing my friend's mint plant looking sadder than a weeping willow, however, got me off the couch. I might be a bum at home after working extended hours, but I am not a bad plantsitter, damn it!
