I had to laugh when I got a catalog from a clothing and home furnishings company recently. Anthropologie is a trendy bunch with the latest fashion must-haves, doodads and knickknacks for the home in all the popular colors.
A bit pricy for my taste, but I flipped through the lovely advertising booklet as I waited for a basketball practice to end. Here's the listing that made me laugh:

For the nongardeners out there, you're probably wondering why I'm laughing. For those of you who dabble in the dirt like me, well ... you get it.
