You might be a gardening geek on Thanksgiving if…
You spent at least half a day moving all the plants out of your dining room so you could actually use it for Thanksgiving dinner. When you were bringing plants indoors before the first frost, you thought the dining room was the perfect place for the plants because it was seldom actually used for dining. Subtract points if you decided to leave the plants in the dining room and set up card tables in another room for people to sit at. Really! You can move those plants for one day.
Your Thanksgiving dinner includes at least one side dish of a vegetable from your own garden. Bonus points if it was a fresh vegetable, not canned, and you’ve already had a frost where you live. More bonus points if the sage in your sage stuffing came from your garden. Even more bonus points if you made a pecan pie with pecans from your own pecan tree!
Your idea of the best way to work off the big Thanksgiving dinner is for everyone to go outside for some vigorous leaf raking. Bonus points if you actually did go out and rake leaves after you ate.
You are thankful that you got all your bulbs planted before Thanksgiving. Give yourself a bonus point for every 100 bulbs you planted. Cha-ching! Too bad the points aren’t redeemable for prizes or redeemable for anything at all.
Your cornucopia is packed with gourds from your own garden. Bonus points if you even have a cornucopia on your table for decoration.
You are disappointed when you look through all the black Friday ads because no one has a big ‘door buster’ sale on gardening tools. Bonus points if you’ve ever bought a new gardening tool the day after Thanksgiving.
You are thankful for your garden and all your garden blogging friends and your real friends and family, too. Bonus points if you came here today to see if you were a gardening geek for Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving from May Dreams Gardens.
