Pat them on the head.

Bury them.

Fertilize them on a regular basis (which is more than I do for any other veggie!)

Net them.

Pluck them.

Give them companionship.


And if I’m veeeeeerrrry very lucky, I may even get to eat them.



For an explanation of some of these tips, see last year’s story here.
