In my head, there are just a few things that I don’t think should go together. Pickles and ice cream, snow and my life, Paris Hilton and the front page of the newspaper are a few examples. But as pregnant women, my husband and major media outlets can attest to, what I think and what actual happens are two very different things.
Garden and Gun.
Garden and Gun.
Sorry, just trying to get the logic meter to restart.
While I have said that I fully intend to go hunting, these are really not two topics that I would think normally go together, unless their intention is to continuously publish stories about deer, squirrels and rabbits and managing them in your garden.
Their website says that this is a magazine that embodies the essence of “21st Century Southern Americaâ€. Really?!? What is it you people do down South? Topiaries of Uzis? I can seeÂ the articlesÂ now, “Getting a Bang out of Making Bean Pole Tepees from Unused Shotguns”.
I alternately have visions of a 65-year-old elegant southern belle grandma stalking rabbits in her back yard with a double barrel shotgun while wearing camo gardening gloves and apron to a redneck good ol’ boy with missing teeth pruning a rose bush with shots from a .22 (for the light pruning, of course).
Now, I am sure that this is not the case. Probably the target audience is a genteel gentleman who tends dahlias and participates in quail hunts. But the words Garden and Gun seeminglyÂ should notÂ go together. I want to know what night of drinking lead to even imagining that there was an audience for this?

By the way, I am not the only garden bloggerÂ perplexed by this:
