My relationship with my daughter has had some rocky moments, especially in her teenage years. Since she is adopted we don't share any genetic similarities. And I am almost exactly 40 years older than her, which she has never let me forget. LOL We don't really have a lot in common. I am more sedentary by nature, while she is an awesome athlete, sometimes running over 15 miles a day. While I love to read; she has never been a reader.
So when I asked her to help me re-pot a root bound Meyer Lemon tree, I was surprised that she said yes.
We bought some potting soil at Lowe's, paid for it and on the way out, Katie noticed some jalapenos plants. She and her boyfriend love pickled jalapenos in almost everything except ice cream, so she bought a four pack.
We returned home with our goods and checked under the crawl space for some suitable pots for the jalapeno plants. It was sweet to see her excitement for something that she once considered so boring.

Well she is not exactly into gardening yet. But there is hope that we will share love of growing things someday. It was a sweet moment for me. Did I say that our relationship has improved these last few years? :o)
Have a wonderful day, my friend!
