MERCIFULLY, INSTYLE MAGAZINE HASN’T HAD A GANDER at any of my current “work” outfits, or how many years out of date my handbag and shoes are. (Come to think of it, I’m not certain that the footwear of choice here in Nowheresville even qualifies on their radar as proper shoes at all, but they don’t have to reckon with snakes and cowpies and such, now do they?) These seeming mismatches notwithstanding, I just learned that A Way to Garden had been shouted out on the editor’s page of the November issue of InStyle as one of the “Site[s] We Love.” Woo-hoo; what a compliment. The specific citation:
“The site’s gardener, writer Margaret Roach, is so encouraging. She made me believe I could grow fava beans in my tiny NYC garden plot, though I hadn’t a clue how. Eventually I did, and they were delish!“
So said copy chief Marcia Lawther, one of seven editors to each name a favorite site.
I found myself there in the amazing company of Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen (a destination I, too, love), which made the honor even sweeter. Thanks, InStyle, for not letting my fall from stylishness get in the way.
