YOU NEVER KNOW who will show up in my backyard. No, it wasn’t the black bear again, and hundreds of Open Day visitors aren’t due till Saturday, the final garden tour of 2014. This week so far it was friends bearing not gifts, exactly, but gear: the Growing a Greener World TV crew, replete with cameras galore. Seeing them made me remember the segment we shot here a year ago—when Jack the Demon Cat, RIP, got his moment of cinematic fame. Watch that one now in the player below.
Host and executive producer Joe Lamp’l took the photo above, by the way, with director of photography Carl Pennington also in the frame.
The show will air in December, as the season finale, I believe, and will also feature Mya Thompson and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Exciting!
And P.S.—I don’t usually use the vintage Chinese dining-room chairs, like the ones co-executive producer Theresa Loe and I are sitting, as outdoor furniture. I haven’t gone totally mad—yet. By the time this week is over, with the added chaos of very cold nights that have me dragging pots in and out and in and out and…you get the idea…I may indeed be.
