Gardens and groceries

Had a nice note from Diane in response to the amaranth image the other day. She learned to like it while in the Peace Corps in the Congo. She now plants it in her garden, and enjoys the greens. Then I went to the grocery, with a list. Cleaning product? I was guaranteed there was only one version. Nope, there were two. Original cat chow? Would you believe eleven varieties, none of which say original? Dill pickle slices? Another dozen or so, all rounds or spears, and all somehow enhanced. Then a plentiful array of soft drinks. Now I know what I'm doing! Damn, two empty spots on the shelf! Guess which ones I wanted! Diane may be onto something, even if it is pigweed, it is nice and simple.
