Back when Janet and Margaret Thele hosted their Saturday morning radio show (greetings to all our listeners; you made those mornings fun), you helped us when we started kicking around ideas for events which would showcase the special skills gardeners develop. We didn't then find a sponsor to host the competitions... We wonder if the idea might be viable now, in these days of oddball reality shows.
From our notes from those shows, here are events we thought should be included in the Gardeners' Games. We'd love to talk about ideas for other events, or hear nominations of people who may already qualify as a champion in one or more of these categories. So we've begun a Forum topic to carry on this fun. If the notion catches on perhaps those of us who posted here, might be awarded some credit, or be invited to compete!
Perhaps judges should announce results from lounge chairs or while leaning over a fence... but that might be too much like real life!
