Top Ten Ways to Know You are a “Real” Gardener

May 29, 2009

Many of us garden with the seasons.  We gleefully keep to our hardiness zones, tame our compost piles and exude kindness to mother nature.  Some us then morph into “real” gardeners that take it to another level.  Here are some ways you’ll know when you’ve reached the ranks of a “real” gardener:

  1. You will only date men named Herb
  2. Your baby stroller is a wheelbarrow
  3. You’re in the garden so much YOU are the scarecrow
  4. On cold and lonely nights you cuddle with your compost pile
  5. You pursue litigation when you don’t win first prize at the county fair
  6. The dark circles under your eyes are actually dirt
  7. You comb your hair with a hand rake
  8. There is a cloud of fruit flies following you at all times
  9. You have legally changed your name to Tomato Squash Johnson
  10. The Veggie Tales characters are from your garden

      Is it even possible to be mutually exclusive? I would think not. Thanks for adding your comment Lil Conklin.
