Gnoming When to Plant
Garden gnomes are reported to be excellent gardeners and caretakers. It is that time now, mid to late Spring, that we all look forward to getting the garden set with this summer’s fresh home-grown vegetables. Aside from forest mushrooms, the gnomes will look to help themselves to what the humans have planted. And they take great joy in catching those slugs.
Rabbits are their friends, so in they may come. Now the deer are also good friends with the gnomes and when they’re in the garden, they can eat way too much. So, the garden owner will probably overlook the slugs and work on the larger deer problem (tall fence and locked gate!)
After a long, cold winter, the gnomes are looking for fresh vegetables too. A fun gift from the gardener’s children is to lay out an extra carrot or two, maybe a few fresh greens and other Spring vegetables. Organic is best, but they’ll appreciate almost anything now. Make friends with your garden gnomes and they will return the gift and watch over your garden all summer.
Need a few little gnome garden homes around, just let us know. They’re on our website and we’d love to ship you one, or a few. They will be noticed and greatly appreciated.
All is well. Happy Easter to all.
