You Might be a Gardener If…

December 26, 2008

1.    You would rather style your hedge than your hair
2.    Dinner discussions include manure varieties, textures and ph levels
3.    You own more pairs of gloves than shoes
4.    You know what a ‘schoenoplectus tabernaemontanus’ is
5.    You have named your compost pile
6.    When you refer to a hoe,  you are referring to a hoe
7.    You know what is on page 349 of you Sunset Western Garden book  before you finish this sentence
8.    Psychiatric intervention is needed for your snail problem
9.    You call your thinning hair ‘defoliation’
10.  When complimenting her melons you are referring to her cantaloupe

Some of us make it a hobby but some of us become consumed and irreversibly excited about gardening. This list is just the beginning…

Do you have more garden idiosyncrasies you’d like to add?

    What a great list! Here’s another one:

    You might be a gardener if the first few paragraphs of “The Complete Book of Composting” (J.I. Rodale, 1960) bring tears to your eyes.

    That is a great one! If you don’t mind, we’ll add it to the next list. Oh yes, there is more to come…
