Around The Office, fun with Jim Carper

Every office should make room for fun.

I took the initiative to create an herb garden at the office. The container garden provided healthful herbs, and it demonstrated that even an apartment dweller with limited space could engage in gardening. My alter ego, Farmer Herb, promoted the garden.

One spring, when the cicadas returned to earth (after 17 years underground), I organized an afternoon party we called "Cicada de Mayo."
