What in the Heck is It?

A small and rather diminutive package arrived via Fed Ex this afternoon and we thought it was so absurd that it should be documented. I do not envy the person whose job it was to mummify this creature in bubble wrap.

Care to venture a guess at what lurks beneath the packaging?

Hint: It is definitely garden related. And nope, not a giant paddle for hitting people over the head who urinate in the street garden, although I am considering it for that purpose.


Doing my best warrior impression.

  1. a skinny scarecrow…..no no….a pitch fork….no no no….aaaaaa…..a “stop don’t trample the veg” sign!

  2. I think it’s one of those things for hanging your tomatoes upside down. Or, maybe it’s a tiki torch? Hmmm, I’m also thinking it could be a heater.

  3. I think it looks like a giant broom, but you said garden-related…

    Some sort of gizmo that weeds the garden in your absence? Like an agricultural Roomba??

  4. something for the street garden! either a “tarnashins, get off my land” sign or a giant flyswat. :)

  5. Shannon: I will post when someone gets it right. Hint: There is one close answer.

    Pirate: Sure! I can rustle up a prize.

    I am loving all of your answers and wish there were items that did some of these things you’ve suggested!

  6. It’s a solar panel to run your margarita blender in the garden…what, you don’t do that in your garden? Come on, gardening and a cocktail, it’s a good thing…hehe


  8. It’s Gumby with his arms and legs together…

    and it’s garden-related because… um… he’s green, that’s why.

    It’s definitely Gumby… look, you can see the shape of his head and everything!

    I’ll go now. :)

  9. Haha, my guess would be a house for mason bees, but other than that I’m completely stumped!

    That is an AWESOME picture though, hah!
