Mini Rows Garden #1

In preparation for my website relaunch, I am uploading some of my favorite puzzles from the old site. Rows Gardens have long been one of my favorite puzzles to solve, but I'm still getting the hang of constructing them, and I found that using a smaller grid helped me focus on the quirks of the format's geometry without having to come up with a lot of long (9-16 letters or so) entries. In formatting the solution grid, which was missing from the original puzzle, I noticed an unfortunate dupe between a clue word and a (different) grid entry in one of the Bloom lists, and there's at least one Row entry I'd be tempted to write a more current clue for. Nevertheless, I think this is a solid puzzle.
