Many pitfalls can be encountered while gardening: poor soil, drought, neighborhood cats, and of course, weird things that you find burrowing through the ground (which are always surprising and perplexing, no matter how experienced of a gardener you might be).
Taken a step further, many pitfalls can be encountered in life - and one of the most devastating can be the thoughts and memories that you've thought you've buried and covered up, but which inevitably always burrow their way back to the surface.
All the Growing Things is about these pitfalls. Occasionally, it's about cats.
But only occasionally.
