Gardens Today 01/06/2015

 

Well, let’s go to Great Britain where being a gardener brings power and prestige, not to mention unknown adventures. I take you to the Borough of Hackney in London for an exciting day. A gardener near to the park found a 70-year old, WW II relic.

One never knows in London what they’ll find in the garden. That’s got to be more exciting than here in the USA! This is an on-going thing there and never seems to end. We here don’t realize this. They even developed new tech to prevent shrapnel from escaping…On rare occasions here, one finds an unexploded shell from the Civil War in areas where the battles took place. Not all battlefields are Federal Lands or under the National Parks. Some are woods and farmlands. But all this is much older than WWI and WW II in Europe.

Imagine, if you will, Glenn digging here for a post for a new vine (we are on a former peach orchard-pre-1952). He runs in with info that he hit something unusual. Of course he wants me to see it.

“Look at this thing. It’s rounded on the end. I hit it a few times with the sledge hammer but it didn’t move.”

“Glenn, what could it be? Do you think it could be something stolen from the old ammo depot a few towns over-like a bomb?” I say.

“Bomb? Your imagination is running wild…”

“Well, anything’s possible. I’m just analyzing the evidence, as usual.”

Glenn, who is more down-to-earth (literally) seems to figure it out.

“I know, it’s a small, tractor sprayer for the orchard.”

Well, so much for any great excitement here “across the pond”. We’ve a relic from 20th century, farming life…

So, that is a fictional story of what we could find here in our gardens. More exciting than fiction is what we’ll be doing outside soon!
