ILOVE THE HEADLINE THAT KEN DRUSE, the noted garden writer, photographer and podcaster, applied to our latest conversation on his show “Real Dirt” last week. He called it “A Little Bit Country–a Whole Lot of Rocks and Rolling with the Punches.” I guess that about sums up my life these days, and it was fun as always to talk to Ken, an old friend from whom I have learned much, about my book and rural living and more. You can listen in anytime right here to our podcast chat.

how conservation starts in your yard, with doug tallamy
‘NATURE’S BEST HOPE’ is the title of University of Delaware professor Doug Tallamy’s new book, and the subtitle reads like this: “A New Approach to Conservation That Starts in Your Yard.” In other words, you and I are nature’s best hope. Our actions count, and they add up to counteract a fragmented landscape and other challenges to the survival of so many critically important native creatures and the greater environment we all share.
Doug Tallamy’s 2007 book, “Bringing Nature Home,” has been for many of us a wake-up call into the entire subject of the unbreakable link between native plant species and native wildlife, and now with more than a decade of additional research insights, he goes further.
