|Rain makes the garden green|
You might be a gardening geek doing laundry if…
You divide your laundry up into loads of lights, darks, and gardening before you wash it. Bonus points if the largest pile is gardening.
You have more than three shirts in the laundry that have a saying on them related to gardening. Bonus points for each shirt that is green. Limit ten bonus points.
You consider grass and mud stains on the knees of your jeans as more of a badge of horticultural honor than some dreadful stains that must be removed. After all, those jeans will be stained again within five minutes of wearing them in the garden the next time.
Your white socks are no longer really white but are more of an interesting off white with streaks of brown from mud and green from grass that never really come out after washing.
You feel like you garden best in your faded green t-shirt that is over
10 12 15 years old and has a little hole on the shoulder seam that out of the corner of your eye looks like a bug so much so that you find yourself swatting at it every 15 minutes or so when you forget, again, that it is a little hole in your shirt and not a bug. You insist on wearing this shirt even though you have plenty of newer t-shirts that you could wear. You just hope that after each washing it is still intact enough to wear one more time.
You attempt to do laundry while gardening which results in some newly washed non-gardening clothes ending up with some mud on them when you forgot to wash your hands before moving the clean clothes to the dryer. Frass! You thought your hands weren’t that dirty.
You find a plant label in the dryer after drying your gardening clothes and think how nice it is that the plastic tag is all nice and clean now. Bonus points for finding a seed packet. Subtract points if you hear a clunk-clunk-clunk in the dryer and realized you’ve just washed your hand pruners.
You have been known to take off your clothes in the laundry room after a day of gardening to avoid tracking mud, leaves, and other garden debris into the rest of the house.
Finally, you might be a gardening geek doing laundry if you are doing laundry on a rainy Saturday and writing a garden blog post about it because it is too wet to go out and garden.
