You know you're a Master Gardener When:




  1. You rejoice in rain...even after 10 straight days of it.
  2. You have pride in how bad your hands look.
  3. You have a decorative compost container on your kitchen counter.
  4. You can give away plants easily, but compost is another thing.
  5. Soil test results actually mean something.
  6. IPM rules!
  7. You’d rather go to a nursery to shop than a clothes store.
  8. You look for gardens open to the public whenever you go on vacation.
  9. Your non-gardening spouse is actually getting involved with your garden endeavors...digging ponds, building bird houses, watering, pruning, turning compost piles, planting...

And you definitely know your a Master Gardener when...

  1. You are surrounded by terrific people who share your passion!

Nice list. Of course, these are true for passionate gardeners of all stripes, not just Master Gardeners. :-) #10, #4, and #3 are me all over.

Hope you feel better soon. I still have the plants you wanted. No hurry.

I think I hit every one of them--especially #7!

Hope you're feeling better soon. Seems like lots of Austinites I know right now are under the weather.

Heres's another one for you, at least here in Texas. Go to a seminar or convention first question is "what county?"

When every time you walk into the garden you gasp in amazement at the sight before you.

The only noises in the garden are buzzing of bees and the sound of the breeze rustling through the plants.
