So I was standing in the kitchen making dinner one night, and I hear the front door open and slam shut. with the biggest smile on his face, Brolin runs to the back door and tells me he bought us a surprise. And what do I see when I look out the back? A tomato plant! Yes, that's really the surprise. We are now proud gardeners and have since added to our lonely tomato plant, a cherry tomato plant and a strawberry plant. And Brolin built the perfect little box for them after work one day. I love my hot, handy husband.
