Make the most of things. It's important.

I operate a Pick Your Own Vegetable Farm when work slows down and I have a chance to get some crops started. One day a family of three, 2 parents with a four year old daughter, came by to find something for dinner and show the yung'un how food grows. The little one had a great time. She got to pet the chickens and ducks, pick some lettuce and was astounded that there were so many tomatoes in so many different colors.
She asked if she could pick a flower.
"Go right ahead" I told her, "Any one you want."
She had already chosen an Empress of India Nasturtium in full bloom. While my back was turned, she picked her flower, along with the whole plant, roots and all.
"Is this good?" she asked.
On turning to look, her mother let out a GASP.
Not wanting this to be an incident I told her "That's perfect. I'll get you a pot. We can put some soil in it so you can take it home and have a whole garden."

Now they are regular customers. I give the girl a different plant every time she comes.
And she has her own garden.
 
Bring me the box labeled "thinking cap" ... and then read this tiny ad:
