Answer:  THREW IN THE TROWEL

(For those not familiar with the idiom, this is a pun on THROW IN THE TOWEL.  It comes from the sport of boxing, when your fighter is losing badly, but the referee isn’t stopping the fight, the manager will throw in a towel from their corner, to signal to the ref that he/she wants the fight to be over.  And of course, a “trowel” is a small handheld shovel used in gardening.

All of today’s clue words are old favorites, but three of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “tarreh”, “slawee”, and “toolin” before.  I liked “buyeat” the best.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble that didn’t give anything away.  As usual, it was the leading nature of the clue/question, combined with the visual of our gardener actually tossing her trowel.  Nice little veggie garden.  I hope her quitting is just temporary.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Did you lose much of traffic since you posted about the other jumble spoiler site? I would never have even know about it since you mentioned it…

    THIS PUZZLE WAS HARD!!! I threw in the “trowel” and came to you for LOTION & HYBRID. I got solution immediately, but could not even back into those two words. I had HYBRID but was spelling it wrong! Well, at least our garden has been productive this year! Cucumbers, tomatoes, kale, broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers, and padron peppers! I love summer!

    Great jumble! I had no problem with any of the clue words. I got HYBRID quickly and was surprised that it didn’t hang me up. And the answer was right there! I love it when I get a Sunday jumble finished up before Tuesday!!

    No. Not that I can tell, Smitty. But, thanks for asking. — YUR

    Ah! Your garden is much more important than any silly old puzzle, Lesley! We haven’t had HYBRID all that often, but we’ve had LOTION a few times. At least one other time with “toolin” as the jumble too. You’ll kill the next Jumble!

    — YUR 🙂
