I am a garden nerd and I don't care. Let me explain: I have a friend at work who wanted to start a garden for the first time. He asked me some questions and I tried to help him out. After a few weeks he came to me and told me that he was giving up because he just didn't have the time.
Not wanting him to give up I told him about some of my gardening challenges, the most recent being how to protect my young plants from the free-roaming chickens. I pulled out my phone to show him a picture of one of the cages that I had placed around the borage.
I saw his eyebrows rise when I started showing him the other pictures of the garden. I guess it could have been the excitement in my voice as I explained every picture.
I quickly realized that he wasn't very interested in looking at the pictures or even talking about gardening any longer so I squelched my excitement and shut down the picture show.
As I think back on the encounter his reaction made sense. Here I am, a 50 year old man, whipping out pictures of my garden and showing them off like they were my grandkids. The fact that I even carry around garden pictures to show off proves that I am a hopeless, albeit happy, garden nerd.
Here's the thing. If you are reading this I would be willing to admit that you have pictures of your garden too.
Anyone willing to admit it?

I have to admit, maybe I am a garden nerd too! :)
I am one of those..
Count me in!! I have photographs of my garden that span about thirty years!! I even take snaps of the flowers I took last year and compare them - how sad is that?
