That's my story. As one of many gourd seeds lying in a Wal-Mart display, I never even dreamed of what I might become. Perfectly happy where I was, I dreaded even the thoughts of bein' outside lying in a pouring rain...IN THE MUD! How could I ever amount to anything in such an environment?
Along with that obvious concern,....I had heard about sprouting...Which, quite frankly,......... sounded Painful.
