The Dark Side of Gardening

No handbook will be as vital to you this gardening season as "How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack" by Chuck Sambuchino. While you worry about the lack of rain, these garden ornaments could be preparing to attack your family. Sambuchino has documented examples, though many survivors are in witness protection. Photographs are provided of gnomes caught in the act of invasion, burrowing under houses and coming up through the heating vents. The author provides a step by step guide to:

  • Access your risk
  • Gnomeproof your house
  • Discover the weapons gnomes use
  • Discover what weapons to use against gnomes
  • Gnome disposal

Don't be fooled by their apple cheeks and Santa beards. Sambuchino recommends sleeping with your shoes on to be prepared for a gnome attack. So this spring, may your sprouts be many and your harvest be full, but most of all beware!
