I was just talking about Adrian Higgins and his fork

Then today in the Washington Post, he writes a great piece about recycling tools and other items for use in the garden, and he starts off extolling the virtues of his garden fork.

The rest of the article is about the Community Forklift Annual Spring Soiree. I've never heard of this, but having read Adrian's article and visited the Community Forklift website, I may be wheedling to Mulch about checking this out. Anyone been? If we do go, I'll report back on how it was.

P.S. Yesterday's pea-planting turned out to be eating potato chips in the sun room, talking to the Queen Mother on the phone, and reading up on the best time to plant peas and kale and parsnips. Also, the dogs licked my pants a lot.


  1. Ha! I read your other blog posts this morning, then the Post article. Was just comming back here to comment on forkiness, but you've beaten me to it!

    I love Community Forklift. I've never been to this spring event, but they're a great source for lighting, cabinets, doors, windows, etc.

    And here's a reminder to get those peas in pronto! Else they'll wither in the heat to come.

  2. Hi, Cherry, it's so good to see you! I swear, I will put those peas in the ground tonight if it kills me. And I'm getting more determined to check out the Community Forklift thang, thanks to your recommendation. I sent the link to Mulch and the response was positive!

  3. How was it? I've never heard of it.

  4. Ah. Well. We didn't go. Did I not mention in the previous post that my plans don't always go according to plan? I started to describe what we DID do, but I decided that will be my next post!
