“I had this TV show for eight years called Tool Time. They called me ‘The Toolman,’” Tim says to Mike during the episode before doing that famous grunt. “It was kind of my thing.” Mike then responds that the grunt is “a little annoying.”

Later in the episode, Mike’s wife, Vanessa (Nancy Travis), tells her husband about her talk with Tim. “It turns out he has three grown kids, only boys. He’s smart, he’s funny,” she says. “You guys are a lot alike.”

Other seed sources are listed at all-americaselections.org. Full-service nurseries and garden stores can sometimes be persuaded to
