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
