Help! I’m having an affair
Dear Geeky, I’ve been having an affair with my vegetable patch for a year now and I think my husband’s beginning to suspect. Maybe it’s the dirt under my nails or the smell of tomatoes on my clothes.
I don’t think I’m doing anything wrong, apart from spending hours with my lover. It’s not as if things have progressed beyond the obsession stage.
But I don’t think my husband will see it the same way. How do I break the news gently, yet keep my garden-with-benefits?
Geeky says, Why tell your husband? What will that achieve? A lot of broken plant pots and spilt compost, that’s what.
No, keep your affair close to your heart. Trust me. Both you, your garden and your husband will be the better for it.
