I'm glad I spotted this post and re-read Jeremy's article -- what a romp! Wouldn't you love to see the garden he's planted?
I garden at night also, with a head-lamp. My first one had AA batteries, but my current one has a tiny battery and little LED looking bulbs -- still nice and bright, but much lighter and hence comfortable enough to wear for hours! LOL
I think we should be neighbors... but then we'd have to make a move on the farm field behind me...
Thanks for your kind comments and empathy for my gardening addiction affliction. With my finances and the general economy being on the lean side, I'm now forced to let my fingernails grow long so that I have a pair of pincers always ready to do some judicious pruning on public plants and private estates where greenery strays past the property line. Like a man driven to steal a loaf of bread out of desperate hunger, my craving for plants compels me to pinch what I can.
But at least all the cull pack annuals that have long since expired gave me what seems to be a never ending supply of potting soil. I still have dozens of flats of 2 inch pots scattered around the yard to dump out and recycle the dirt.
