I wonder why I am the only commenter here. I came here after the fun post of Carol Fairy Vine. I envy your writing job because i am a horticulturist too, but after a few years in laboratory research i just happened to be transformed to IPR. I really love what you do.

Now there are 2 comments! Your blog is one of my favorites, I like how you can tie in books, you have many guest posts and the best, the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. As soon as I can get some current garden pics, I will be posting my link to your Bloom Day posts. Could I add my July post to your July Bloom Day post? By the way, I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. Check out my post at

I had to check out the hoe report as well but ran out of images to find a space to comment. There probably isn't one due to those of bad taste and due to poor breeding and their utterances. My momma raised a gentle gardener. But I am duly impressed and I'm suffering a bipolar heartache (there really is one, for me at least) because I kept looking for the garden weasel. Must ask; is there one?

A thoroughly enjoyable and well written site Carol. I'll be sure to be back. Meanwhile I'll keep my eye out for a garden hoe that is unlike any of yours. That said it looks like you've got most of your bases covered here.
