Up Jumped Irish Spring
We have harvested the first spring fruits of the bathroom tree.
They are seven perfectly clean, heavy-duty, crisp white paper towels, folded like napkins. There must be a name for this luxury item but I am not sure what that would be.
I would never actually spring to buy something like this! But that is where the bathroom tree comes in.
With patience we harvest our own toiletries!
We have a group home by our house and what happens is, there is this one guy who yells and bellows and throws things out of the bathroom window. At least we think that it is the yelling and screaming guy who throws this stuff out. It lands in our grass and on the driveway. No one ever goes out to repossess it. If we do not pick it up these items up they would just stay there forever.
We consider it our bathroom garden and every once in a while there is a harvest.
Once it was a big bar of soap!
Another time, a bottle of shampoo.
It is always nice stuff because it is other people's money being spent. You know how it is when you are gardening, you have a little something to look forward to when you wake up in the morning. Sometimes I take a break in working on my Pennario project and I go outside and see if there is anything ready to be picked.
I wonder what the bathroom garden will yield us next!
The climate is right this year for a good harvest.
