John recently described the Elephant Ears plant in our garden as “the biggest bang for six bucks this summer.”
John grew the Elephant Ears from a big root the size of a baseball.
He bought the root ball (for six dollars) at the end of April, and it sat on our counter for weeks.
When he finally planted it just before the end of May, we were concerned that maybe we had waited too long.
But big things can still come to those who procrastinate. One month later, the plant had a sprout.
Two months later it had three big ears.
And when we visit at night, it’s like getting lost in a rain forest …
a few steps from our back door.
live. enjoy. repeat.
