Re: gardening/non-gardening

I don't think we were thumbing our noses at the non-gardening gardeners.  We
realize that everyone has something to offer.  However, I think these
particular non-gardening gardeners are a little bit out of touch with
reality if they think they can produce a garden tour on April 17.  Unless
the tour is titled "First signs of Spring".
