Cannon Beach, Oregon -- ground zero for Gard-N-Hook -- is a lot like Amity in "Jaws" -- 1,200 people year round and 10,000 day trippers any nice Saturday during the summer.
For reasons which remain unclear, however, no one counts the local Elk as full-timers, though they are regular drop-in company for dinner, no reservations required, standing room only and please eat whatever the rabbits can't reach. (See video below)
We were sitting around at the beginning of the pandemic trying to make masks out of paper towels and pipe cleaners when it became obvious that inventing a garden tool that didn't exist and no one had ever hear of would be tons easier -- and thus was born Gard-N-Hook.
It is going well, if for no other reason than I think we've discovered Democrats and Republicans are bipartisan on gardening matters -- and neither objects philosophically to the Gard-N-Hook! Hope springs eternal, right?
Garden on, make a friend and stay off those ladders -- get a Gard-N-Hook and keep your feet on the ground!
