    Accusations of sex, arson, bullying, adultery: life & hard times in NYC garden club

    Dirt Flies at the Garden Club (Even Before Spring Planting)
    (New York Times)

    It started with the accusations of sex behind the back pond. Of late-night parties that begot stitches and adultery. Favoritism. Misspending. Bullying.

    Since then, the police have been called, e-mail access has been revoked and Robertís Rules of Order repeatedly cited. Expletives have been tossed around. Herb lovers have nearly come to blows.

    A toolshed burned to the ground; the word arson was uttered.

    So goes life these days at the Roosevelt Island Garden Club, where palace intrigue surrounding the garden presidency has grown as abundant as the daffodils, organic vegetables and lazy cats that populate this speck of earth in the middle of the New York City map.

    Too bad about the garden club, but whoever wrote that article? Brilliant.
