Some couples indulge in phone sex - or sexting, if they are hip and young - when they are apart. Not us. We discuss our vegetables.
"My co-worker gave me another cucumber today."
"Another big one?"
"Almost as big around as last time, but this one's less than half as long. She thinks that it hung down too low, hit the ground, and couldn't grow anymore."
"Ours don't hit the ground."
"That's good! That means our vertical trellis is working."
"We can get it up and keep it up?"
