Ready the soil, plant seeds and take off your clothes

It was a perfect morning in Pat Brown’s back yard — temperature in the low 70s, no rain, sunny. She was itching to take off her clothes and start gardening.
You heard right.
“I do garden in the nude, and I enjoy it,” admitted Brown, 69, a master gardener living near Eugene, Ore.
I called Brown to learn more about Sixth Annual World Naked Gardening Day Saturday. On that day, we’re all supposed to spice up the weekend by letting it all hang out while we rake, weed and hoe.
The celebration is sponsored by the American Association for Nude Recreation. They must be legit — they have an iPhone app and a mention in a recent Wall Street Journal article. The writer noted that the 250 nudist resorts, cruises and other events add up to a $440 million business in the United States.
