OUR THIRD MONTH IN (MONKEY) BUSINESS over here has been a big one, as you doubtless know. The New York Times has honored us, and then, as if on cue, so has “new” media: our empowering and astonishing blogging platform called WordPress just called us “beautifully designed.” I kind of thought that gardeners would like me when I came back out of my long dormancy, but to have the geeks like me, too…well, I am one pretty happy person today. Thanks to the more than 25,000 of you who have paid a visit (and go tell WordPress thanks, too, won’t you, for all they’ve done to make me possible?). And thanks to everyone else “here” who has helped.

my may 2012 garden chores
I ALWAYS SAY THAT MAY IS MULTIPLE-CHOICE MONTH, but in 2012 I’m renaming it Mayhem Month, since that’s what it feels like after the hot-windy-dry-then-frozen..
Congratulations on the terrific piece in the Times! M
Welcome, Michael, former Martha colleague and longtime friend. You can say you knew me when…I had a paying job! (Details, details.)
Way to go! You deserve it!
Welcome, Millie. Nice to hear a good word from a former colleague, thank you. Hope that all is well.
Much deserved for sure!
(and for what it’s worth, I also worked at MSLO for a short while with Ellen Burnie before being pulled over to Real Simple by Eva S.)
Speaking of compensation…well, maybe we’d better not. This blogging appears to qualify for charitable status by any description I can find, but Kenn’s right, the benefits are many. Thank you all.
Another month has passed so quickly.. in business terms, you are now officially off probation. :) Congratulations! Your ‘benefits’ are now fully active. Oh.. your benefits? You get to know all of us which is as much a benefit as us getting to know (more) about you. (there is no expense spared here for benefits)
I’m so, so happy that thousands of people have made your blog and forum a destination to visit on a regular basis..
I need a tissue.. I’m getting weepy..
Congratulations! It was a “good day” in the garden blogosphere when you joined us with A Way To Garden.
Oh, Carol! (Wasn’t that the first line of a Stones song from “in the day”?) What a fun spring and now summer I am having out here w/you and Cathy and mss and everyone.
I guess this is as good a place as any to say thank you for creating this site. It is, indeed, beautifully designed. I look forward to watching it grow.
So glad to meet you here and congratulations to your stellar beginning!!
Welcome, Steamy Kitchen, to A Way to Garden. So glad to see you here!
Mi compadre, hermana–best wishes! I’m telling everyone I know (3 boys and a man plus…) to take some time looking at what you’ve built. Our landscape is all the better for it. Spread the word, folks!
Welcome, Deb, and thank you for the good words from someone who knows about great content. I am lucky to have you in my word-spreading camp.
Welcome, Pam, and I hope you were successful in your brave plight vs. the caterpillar or slug or other hungry herbivore you encountered. We shall overcome (not). I much appreciate the kind words you offered, and hope to see you around here again very soon.
I’m a newbie to your blog. Saw the Times article and signed on ASAP. Loved hearing about the life changes you have made. The blog is exceptional. Thank you for sharing your experience and wisdom with us. And congrats for the recognition by WordPress. Meanwhile something is eating my coleus and have to go tend to them.
Margaret ….Late night in the kitchen for the Grant Family…lots of Magnolia Bakery cupcakes around here…getting ready for the weekend celebration…took a break from the buttercream…looked at my AWESOME plants and thought…Hey, July is here…time to plant some pumpkin seeds..where does the time go…sweet dreams my NY friend….
