Sentence: Each spring, I get all craptimistic and weedgleed waiting for lamb's quarters and purslane to make their annual garden invasion. My motto - if ya can't beat 'em, eat 'em! (BTW, purslane contains more Omega 3 fatty acids than any other edible plant).

Etymology: crap, optimistic

Yep! My daffodils are up about 4 inches - garlic about 6. However, I am so NOT ready for the 50 strawberry plants being delivered today... what the hell was I thinking?
