I'm just glad Red Green didn't build Darryl and Jen's shadehouses.

I'm glad you guys got the reference, I could not remember who said it!

hahaha, I am pretty sure that if Red Green built those shade houses they would fall over AS soon as Darryl and Jen put the most spiny plants in there. I can sorta see it now, picking up the shade cloth with all manner of cholla pads stuck in there! hahaha

No fooling, those minis are incredibly useful. I've used one working with my brother a few times. There are different attachments for it too like forks, soil levelers, etc.
