www.oneword.com - one word, so little time [sweat]

The sweat seemed to pool in my temples before running into my eyes. I wiped my face on my shoulder as my hands and arms were too muddy to do any good. I thrust the garden claw into the soil once more and gave it a clockwise heave. The tines tore through the earth, uprooting weeds and worms. I shook the mud from the roots, dislodging the worms back into the garden. I had to be quick. I had only so much time before the next rainstorm.

Yes, but it was worth it. I got my little basil plants into the ground. There will be a pic of one of them a little later. Mmmmm basil!
