I've been busy this week. The kind of busy that I like; lots of writing about gardening and related stuff. Some of these writings can be less than a hundred words, which is more or less the word count you'll usually find in many of my blog posts.
If you would allow me the courtesy to direct your attention away from this blog for just a few minutes, I'd like to get your opinion about organic gardening, but first you need to read my post in another forum: Click here. Don't worry, it's not a long drawn out thing, but I will say it's longer than a hundred words. Read the comments from others to help you form your own opinion (and the title of my post).
The creators of The Organic Gardeners forum are friends of mine and I've known Doug Oster and Jessica Walliser for several years. Both have inspired me to become more attentive to the organic side of things in the garden. But I think more needs to be done to dispel the quandary that some associate with organic gardening/farming/living or organic anything. I'm considering buying Jeff Gillman's book, The Truth About Organic Gardening, but realize it would be only one of many tools I could use to help me glean a better understanding of what it means to be an organic gardener. Whether you realize it or not dear readers, you too are included in my tool chest.
My article for next week's newspaper column will touch on the above dilemma. And If I can get a few of your thoughts about it, I'd love to include them in what I say. Don't feel rushed, but I'd like to have your view on the matter as soon as possible, say, by Sunday?
And of course, if all you prefer to do is read my post, or not read it and just look at the pictures, that's fine too. Commenting is always optional.
