When the growing gets tough . . .
Mibby Garrett could really use three things: a book that will tell her how to get through to her teenage son; enough money to pay for the new water heater; and a long, gentle rainstorm to nourish her clients' gardens, end the summer drought, and save her garden-design business.
A week's supply of Sweet Suzy Strawberry Cream Balls would be nice, too. Romance, maybe --- but only if the man is at least as reliable as her black Lab and prepared to be an awesome role model for her son.
Most of all, she'd just like a few days with no surprises. She sure hasn't asked for what happens instead . . .
