Because I'm on the receiving end of lots of promotional gardening swag, and because I believe that sharing is an important part of gardening, and mostly because I had so much fun reading all your submissions last year, the second annual Garden Poetry contest is on. Write a poem of 10 lines or less that describes a challenge you face or overcame in your garden and send it to me at or 235 Pinelawn Rd., Melville, NY 11747. Include your full name, address and phone number.

Best poem gets a Gardener's Hollow Leg (click to see); first runner-up takes home a Fist Grip gardening tool, pictured above.
