After my recent post about the Hunky Farmer Calendar, I got this photo, with the following note:
"A client took this photo of my husband planting a
Scotch poodle pine. The pine looks out of place but Jeff is an attractive male
gardener and you’re welcome to use this pic if you want to. Just for fun! Old
So Kim, are you totally robbing the cradle or does "old" have some trick meaning? Coz Jeff here is one young buck, "attractive" being an understatement.
Also on the marital front, I got this desperate email from the husband of a GardenRant reader in my area:
"My wife told me today that for our anniversary tomorrow I should look at the Rant or get her gardening stuff, but she is really a minimalist and I think she has the tools except for a Hoe which could get me in trouble. I was thinking about bulbs…I have no idea of what to get. we have some bulbs but not many. Can you help? Please!"
So I named a few bulb suppliers, both local and mail order, and wished him luck. His response was "You the cool!" so I guess he survived yet another anniversary.
Now I’m the last person in the world to give marital advice, about gift-giving or anything else, so I’ll refrain and let our trusty readers weigh in.
And y’all, we totally love this stuff, so keep it coming.
