green thumb, ho!

... what is this foreign stuff bursting forth from the Earth. Behold, it is edible vegetation commonly referred to as produce! And I made it. Well, I didn't make it, in that all things were created by God... but I helped it a little bit. What an amazing feat considering I am famous for killing houseplants by simply re-potting them.
