<p>Stand back Cobra Head Hoe.  Look out Crazy Daisy Sprinkler.  There’s a new funny garden gadget in town.  This is the Wearable Gardening Stool – a rather blah name for a hilarious invention.  When I received it to test from CleanAirGardening.com, I appreciated it more for its comedic value than its actual practicality, demonstrating it to my officemates and encouraging them to “sit on it!” (a la <i>Happy Days</i>).</p>
<p>The stool buckles around your waist like a seatbelt, and can be adjusted for different waist, sides and yes, even rear size (for those of us with something of a ba-donka-donk).  That brings up an important point:  I didn’t feel as though I was suffocating the stool, much unlike my bike seat. </p>
<p>When you stand, the pogo-like contraption points directly out your rear (I know) and makes for a rather amusing sight.  But I have been working on a new garden inspired by our “<a title=”Mexican Garden” href=”https://www.motherearthliving.com/gardening/garden-spaces-mexican-herbs.aspx”>Mexican Herb Garden</a>” (read: August/September issue), and eventually I overcame the intrinsic embarrassment value and used it.</p>
<p>After a few tens of minutes, I eventually mastered the <i>pelvic thrust</i> required for hands-free seating, and found myself thoroughly enjoying my new tool.  This gadget is the perfect back-saver for planting flowers, weeding, spreading mulch and … milking cows. </p>
<p>I recorded only a few complaints during my tenure with the stool.  Primarily, having a seat attached to your bum at any given moment makes it <i>that</i> much easier to take breaks, and mud began accumulating in the spring (but easily sprayed off).</p>
<p>Also, sometime in the 2 or 3 hours I was ‘scaping, I managed to lose 1 screw and 2 nuts (and I’m having trouble finding replacements).  So for now, my stool is on hiatus and I’m sad.  I want to do<i> the time warp again</i>, and I hope it’s not because of my ba-donka-donk … !</p>
