THE YEAR 2013 WAS MY SILVER ANNIVERSARY of professional garden writing, and in that many trips around the block, er, border, some things have become second nature. Like how to shop for seeds without taking a second mortgage or buying a farm to fit them. In a video from “The Backyard Parables” series, the companion to my most recent book, I share my seed-shopping “rules” (and lots of juicy photos I’ve taken, too). Watch it, share it, and maybe buy a book if you want more how-to like this that’s layered inside a bigger memoir about my relationship with my life partner of 25 years: my own beloved backyard.
help me celebrate 25 years
- Order a book now on Amazon or Barnes and Noble
- Read then share a free excerpt of “The Backyard Parables”
on Facebook, or download the pdf from this link instead.
- Watch the book’s “trailer” video
- Go ahead, share this post on your social networks so other gardeners might find it, using the buttons at the end of the story.
For all of that, and your visits and comments and inspiration, I sincerely thank you.
