Gardening Decline?

Nah, I don't think so. Though I do hear a lot of, "I can't be bothered," and, "I don't have time to fart with plants."

Bonnie Blodgett: "This may come as news to you, but gardening is on the decline nationally. Quite a surprise to the soothsayers who were predicting just the opposite only five years ago."

Hi, Nickie,
thanks for popping in!
Yeah, I don't think it's decreasing either. There are a whole bunch of people growing food for the very first time and there's no way the die-hards are going to give it up. Statistics seem to be different everywhere you look.
