Betty and Jeff McMahan from Stanwood, WA  "We now have seven scarecrows, all built from a combination of tomato cages, fence posts, scrap wood, metal and old clothes—and each with a coffeepot for its head! "When we first started making our garden friends, we didn't think anyone would notice—were we ever wrong!"
