When the folks behind this product sat down to envision a highlighter/post-it flag hybrid, I hardly think they knew they were creating a useful tool for gardeners. Students, office managers, and anal retentive note takers? They’re the obvious users.
But I’d bet they didn’t know that around about midwinter gardeners everywhere are kicking back with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, a stack of seed catalogs, a highlighter, and a brick of post-it flags. Preferably while lounging on the john, in the tub, or on long bus rides.
You’ve just made a mental note to avoid touching other gardeners’ seed catalogs in the future.
Or maybe it’s just me. And maybe only I think this is the best gardening tool there ever was! When I saw this in the store last night I didn’t care that I had already marked up most of the 2010 catalogs. I didn’t care that it probably just boils down to a convenience tool and that I could buy a larger quantity of post-it flags and a trio of assorted highlighters for roughly the same price ($4.25). This tool would revolutionize all of my future seed buying plans or just make me really happy while doing it.
And it has. I only wish I had splurged for the 3-pack so I could gift one to a friend.
