"Wow! What a price!" my mom said as we checked out of the discount store.
"Please go back and grab as many seed packets as you can," she instructed.
I turned around and went toward the back of the store. There was a display there with all sorts of seed packets--seeds for flowers and vegetables. I wasn't sure what mom wanted, but I started grabbing handfuls until I couldn't hold any more.
I ran back to the cash register and dumped them onto the counter.
"How's this?" I asked.
"That's great!" Mom answered.
"What do you need all these seed packets for, anyway?"
"Just a second," Mom answered.
"That will be $3.00," said the cashier.
I stared in disbelief. Only $3.00 for all that? There must have been over 100 seed packets in that pile. There were seeds for beets and marigolds, lettuce and snapdragons, tomatoes and alyssum and more!
