Let the Olympic gardening games begin.
The one and only Idahogardener is hosting a blogging event to commemorate the Olympics in true gardening fashion.
There are just three rules:
1. You must link back to her website.
2. You must show her the best of the best of your garden. You decide what that is: single plant, single fabulous piece of produce, collection of tomatoes, collection of hoes, a garden vignette, whatever. Three entries per garden.
3. Deadline is Sunday night at midnight.
And then Idahogardener is going to decide who gets the gold, silver, and bronze. She says she’s fair minded and since she just got back from her local fair, I’ll bet she is.
I’ve been training for this! I’m ready and have three entries to submit.
I’ve got an entry for something I grow, an entry for something I am, and an entry for something I have.
In the “something I grow” event, can any flower beat a night blooming cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)?
When it blooms, it is a great event, watching the flower unfold in one evening. It’s a time for all to gather around and marvel at a true standout in the horticultural world.
In the “something I am” event, I need only link back to all of the gardening geek posts. You don’t think I study other gardeners to come up with all those traits of a gardening geek, do you?
Well, on some I do, but on others, I’m guilty as charged. And as I get older, apparently my geekiness is turning into outright eccentricity. I bet my family is proud of me now!
Finally, in the “something I have” category, I must submit my hoe collection. Idahoegardener’s rules call out for it!
And I have presented it as five circles to represent the five Olympic rings.
Now just having hoes, I realize, may not qualify you for a gold medal in these gardening Olympics. And so, I’ve got a treat for you…

I eagerly await the decision of the judge!
