it’s world naked gardening day

in Silly stuff and bluster

Apparently nobody got a really bad rash last year, because today is the second annual World Naked Gardening Day. The web site has some suggestions for every type of in-the-buff horticulture enthusiast:

An elderly lady in a Manhattan apartment can plant new annuals in her
window box. Families can rake leaves in their back yard. Freehikers can
pull invasive weeds along their favorite stretch of trail. More daring
groups can make rapid clothes-free sorties into public parks to do
community-friendly stealth cleanups.

In honor of this, today I engaged in naked coffee making, naked floor sweeping, and yes, I went outside naked and pulled a weed. After all, I’m all for an event that supports pulling invasive weeds.  Jenn, are you participating?

One might also call it World Naked get all sorts of spurrious Google hits for mentioning it Gardening Day. And this on the day that 45,000 Namibians are trying to break the World Record for the Biggest Barbeque. If they had called it World's Greatest Boerewors and Braaivleis in the Buff Day, think of the, er, exposure!

Oh no, no one wants to see that. Thanks for the laugh though :-).

What I didn't say was that the weed wilted as soon as it saw me…

Well no gardening to be done really, so I picked wildflower seeds. Unfortunately now I have frostbite and three sled dog teams have run away from town.
