#bruce goes back to nature
Here is a universal truth: Bruce loves gardening. He loves being out in the sun, he loves working in the dirt, he loves growing things that then can be all or part of his dinner. He loves flowerbeds and green spaces. Blame it on the science degrees; he wants to give back to the planet they all live on.
Which means Tony will walk out onto the deck one day in the spring and discover Bruce mowing the lawn. Bruce, not the people Tony pays a very large sum of money for lawn upkeep. And he will bitch and moan and whine when Bruce informs him he fired the landscaping people.
“You do not have authority to fire my lawn people!” Tony will complain.
“Technically, you gave me that authority in mid-December,” Bruce will remind him, and smile when Tony makes his you did not just prove me wrong face.
Bruce will plant in the flowerbeds, mow the lawn, switch to untreated mulch and non-chemical fertilizers (because dogs and Dot play in this yard, Tony) and will start a garden. Tony will not appreciate the whole endeavor until the first hot June day when Bruce strips off his shirt to continue working.
Then, Tony will definitely appreciates.
(And no, Bruce, he will not admit that produce tastes better from a backyard garden. He won’t. Now pass him more of that grilled zucchini and stop being smug.)
Also grilled zucchini is freaking fabulous. Best vegetable.
