Candy!

Yesterday, a bunch of us went to the Rochester Market to shop for fruits and vegetables. While we were at the market, I realized that I should keep an eye open for plants since I have never really owned a plant and wanted to add something that was alive in my dorm.

First, we got plenty of vegetables and fruits, met up with David, Jeff and Lore at the market. I found and bought Bodacious Rapture Hawaiian Pepper Jam, which I sampled and found to be very sweet and spicy. After getting pretty much everything I wanted I saw a table with plants. There were many different kinds of plants there, but none looked like great plants that I would want to take care of. One particular plant caught my attention. It cost $3.50 and I had no idea how to take care of this plant so I kind of hesitated to buy it, but told myself that I would go around and if I still saw nothing that I wanted, maybe I would consider going back and get that plant. The only dilemma I had was that it was the only plant on the table so I started to worry that someone else would take it before I came back.

Before leaving the table, I said that I would like this plant because it produces free candies. Another person who was with me exclaimed something like "This plant makes candy?!" while his/her eyes enlarged with surprise. That made me decide to buy the plant.

I am happy to introduce my new pet...







...the infamous HAWORTHIA plant!
