There was a day when this NYT article would send POD to the interwebs, credit card in hand. Experiments to be run! Obsessing to be done!
Creepy garden owls? Oh, yeah.
Garden Gnome Drones? Tee hee.
The VegiBee? Puhlease!!! (Actually, I’m itching for this one, just a little.) [Edt postscript: the Endurer points out that, um, “itching” as an adjective to describe one’s desire for a vegetable vibrator shouldn’t really be used together. At least not in a family-friendly blog.]
Now? The Hello Kitty watering can is about all that gets experimented with these days. “No, Hurricane, not the sidewalk, the peas, the peas! No, no, not Amma’s shoes, no, the peas, the peas!” (Note: the young gardener chose her footgear wisely.)
