What I wouldn’t give for a warm, home-grown tomato off the vine right now! As a Northerner, it’s just not going to happen. But—that doesn’t mean I can’t have any garden at all.
As I mentioned in November of last year, I was impressed with Niki Jabbour’s The Year-Round Vegetable Gardener—as a native Midwesterner; former resident of Klickitat County, Washington; and current resident of Wallowa County, Oregon, I know how unlikely a winter garden can seem. But Niki’s from Nova Scotia, so if she can do it, I can!
Niki and I traded books, and her review of Get Your Pitchfork On! came out this week. I have to thank her for her complimentary and insightful review. It’s so rewarding when someone really responds to the book.
I’m super-pleased for Niki that her second book, Groundbreaking Food Gardens, will be out in March! Judging by her first one, this book will be full of helpful tips and ideas, and be organized and written well, with lots of great photographs.
Trading books is super fun—if any other writers out there are interested, please contact me.
