Every year, the Carding Garden Club organizes a weekend-long “Home and Garden” tour as a fundraiser for its work to beautify the town. Most of the time, this event generates friendly competition as well as collaboration among Carding’s dirt diggers.
And let’s face it, it’s just so much fun to wander through other people’s gardens knowing that any weeds you see are someone else’s to pull.
However, there’s a new twist to the decidedly non-competitive spirit of the event this year—a new gardener who believes that winning is everything.
The competition begins tomorrow. Hope you can stop by.
