    Aggravating isn't it when you don't get any support from your spouse? :grump:

    When mine says stuff like that I tell him the enjoyment I get from gardening is worth every second because it helps lower my blood pressure when he's getting on my last nerve! ;)

    I'd ask him if he likes to eat......."food doesn't grow itself ya' know!" My DH knows better, I guess I got him pretty much trained in that respect, he didn't say a word when I bought my doeling or put in my seed order.

    I had a city person at my Great Uncles and Aunt's funeral yesterday say that all country people MUST be GREAT cooks because of the lack of fast food resterants and complained that there were so many SPANISH people where he is that there are NEVER enough peppers. I told him that "we all" have FREEZERS and gardens so WE dont have to pay 1.50 for EACH bell pepper !!!!! Try handing your hubby $50.00 and telling him to buy enough food for your fmaily for a WEEK with it. grin. (at least in your mind, it'll cheer you up by giving you a giggle) My hubby is a city boy and I've completely converted him. For Valentine's day he tilled my garden for me. grin.

    HUGS!!!!!!! You sound like you need them today!
