I LEFT HOME LAST WEEK (without telling Jack first!) for a lecture in Baltimore, the farthest I’ve been from here in more years than I can recall. Besides a great crowd at the event held by the Maryland Horticultural Society, there was an extra treat: I got to meet Susan Harris, one of the four bloggers who collaborate on the wildly popular site called Garden Rant. Here’s what Susan had to say about that.

more music, and a rant on why i keep on gardening
THIS AS YOU probably know is not Garden Rant dot com–that’s another website altogether, one run by a whole group of talented garden writers. Here,..
I really enjoyed your lecture when yo were in Baltimore last week. Also, I’m almost finished reading your book. Both are inspiring me to get out there in my small row house garden and do stuff.
Thank you, Carrie. How kind of you to say so. “Doing stuff” is what my days are all about (well, provided I get up out of my chair and away from the keyboard!). :) So glad to meet you again here.
It was so nice to meet you in person after reading your blog and book. I really enjoyed your talk and slides, as did my daughter, who is not a gardener (yet).
Now visiting your garden will have to go on my wish list.
I bet Jack knew Margaret, how they know so much,no one knows. What lovely pictures. Enjoyed Susan’s blog as much as I do yours. All the best, Daisy Marshall, S. Fla.
I enjoy reading your emails and add ons. Garlic is all the rage at the moment on the Mornington Peninsula all the nurseries seem to be selling it especially Hersonswood our GMO free nursery where I buy a lot of my plants and seeds from when I’m not collecting my own seeds. I also buy from ‘Margaret’ who grows her seeds and plants on her tennis court once a month at the Farmer’s Market in Mt Eliza I know they are definitely going to grow.
Rosemary…..all the way from Australia
Hello down there, Rosemary! Love knowing that there is a Margaret down there keeping up the good work. :) I do so love growing garlic, specifically the hardneck type called ‘German Extra Hardy.’
