Canning Jars, Gardening Puns T-Shirt

This is a little t-shirt I designed in honor of gardening!  It’s from a picture I took of some canning jars filled with saur kraut that we grew in our ginormous summer of 2012 garden out at my parent’s farm.  It says, “I garden because I can”.  I had so much fun that summer that I even wrote a poem about it, titled “I Garden Because I Can”.
