Gardening Libraries

Horn tooting

New review published in Library Journal. The problem is that they changed review formats after I wrote that, so it’s basically a rearrangement of the sentences I wrote. Oh well.

More content coming soon. Have to update What I’ve Been Reading, since I definitely have been reading. Other than that, it’s summer, and who gets things done in the summer?

My back porch gave me a t-shirt

Recently my back porch made it into Apartment Therapy’s Great Outdoors 2009 contest. I took five not great pictures of the deck and wrote excessively long copy, but they posted it anyway. The other people on the site make me jealous with their yards and orange tomato cages and whatnot.

Now they tell me that they are sending me an Apartment Therapy book and a t-shirt. How often does your back porch get you a t-shirt? I need to start entering those HGTV reality home shows and start making real money.

The contest is still open for another week if you have a great outdoor space and want to enter.


Pictures of subirrigating grow box construction

What a mouthful! Anyway, here’s an initial look into the construction of the planters we built for our veggies. More explanation will come. The last picture in the set is the monster tomato plant we have out there, taken today– and it’s early June!
