a feature story on some of the crazy questions fielded by local master gardeners...like "What the heck is this?" (Note phallic-looking thingamajig in photo above.) If you have a master gardener hotline in your neck of the woods, don't hesitate to call them with your unsolved horticultural mysteries. They've got a world of knowledge at their green fingertips and they're there to help.
