Strip by: KelpTheGreat

{Rose is sitting in her living room, reading a book}
{She looks out the window}
{She gets up, puts on a gardening apron and sun hat, picks up a trowel, and goes outside}
{Rose approaches her husband, Nick, who is working in the garden}
Rose: Nick, honey, the tomato plants really should be thinned out... and let's cut off the basil tops.
Rose: The daisies should be transplanted to a sunnier spot; and let's not forget those weeds behind the shed.
Nick: Okay, dear.
{Rose heads back to the house, puts away her trowel, and hangs up her apron and hat}
{Rose resumes reading her book}

The author writes:

One Big Happy is a daily comic strip written and illustrated by Rick Detorie. Despite running continuously in newspapers since 1988 'til the present day, I've never seen it in any papers anywhere near where I live, and had never even heard of it before I found a couple of collections at a thrift store. I bought them right away, and found that I really like the strip, which has similarities to Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, Baby Blues, and Stone Soup. The strip is on GoComics, but sadly only goes back as far as 2002.

This particular strip is from the collection, All the Dirt! In that collection, the panels are printed out of order: Panel 2 (not including the title panel) in this strip is panel 5 in the original; panel 3 is panel 6; and panels 4, 5, and 6 are panels 2, 3, and 4, respectively. As I couldn't find the strip online, I had to scan it, which is why the image quality isn't great. Sorry about that.
