The Idiot Gardener

WARNING: This site contains information on gardening, brewing, curing meat,

building shit and hunting, all done in a piss-poor manner. It is not suitable for the

feeble-minded, the weak and lame, those of a nervous disposition, vegans and

vegetarians (and those other ones that only eat fish and the occasional bacon

sandwich - I think they're called 'hypocrites'), those who practice any

manner of folk singing or dancing, people named Colin or fans of Barry Gibb.

Women Gardeners

It must be said that when it comes to any bias against women, there are certain tasks that are often referred to in a stereotypical way. Women drivers, for example, attract a fair amount of criticism from the great unwashed, as do women doctors and – God forbid – women working in any manual sector such as construction. Put a woman into certain sporting arenas such as football, and the very pits of hell seem quite pleasant when compared with the vitriol displayed by some knuckle-draggers. However, women in gardening – women gardeners if you like – are surely safe from patronising attitudes, aren’t they? Well, the Telegraph’s ‘Womens Life’ section – written by women for women – had some advice for what it calls ‘gardenistas’.
