  • Moving to the Country: A City Girl Finds Hope and Harvest at Meadowburn Farm
    by Sandeep Salter on 27 октября, 2020

    We first visited Meadowburn Farm four years ago, at the height of summer. My youngest daughter, Eta, was in my arms, just six months old, and my eldest daughter, Lowe, was three at the time.

  • A Vital Vine: 11 Best Varieties of Ivy
    by Kendra Wilson on 26 октября, 2020

    The yearbook at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, is called The Ivy, named after the ivy-covered buildings on the quadrangle.

  • Between the covers: What goes into writing a gardening book
    by GR Editor on 22 октября, 2020

    Guest Post by Ginny Stibolt Someone recently asked me if there was a free online version of one of my books Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida. My response was polite, but after thinking about it, it occurred to me that readers probably don’t understand the enormous amount of work it takes to write The post Between the covers: What goes into writing a gardening book appeared […]

  • Gardening 101: Pomegranate
    by Kier Holmes on 22 октября, 2020

    Pomegranate, Punica granatum Who else feels like wearing a white toga and donning a laurel leaf crown while munching on a pomegranate? (Just me? Oh, well.) Let me explain.

  • Domestic Dispatches: My Fireplace Remodel, No Smoke Involved
    by Michelle Slatalla on 19 октября, 2020

    There are many reasons I married my husband: for his salsa recipe, ability to make the modem thing work, and taste in books (if he likes an Alan Furst, so will I). But perhaps his greatest hidden talent is he can make a fire. Yes, I know your husband can make a fire too. But

    We have a beautiful dogwood in our front yard.

Trouble is, an arborist recently told me that our

  • Will gardening continue to trend?
    by Elizabeth Licata on 15 октября, 2020

    This is a year when speculation about the future underlies almost everything we do. When will we be able to see children/grandchildren/siblings who live in another state or country? When can we take that vacation? Will the kids be able to go trick-or-treating? When will it be okay to eat inside a restaurant without worry?

  • Hardscaping 101: Clay Roof Tiles
    by Ellen Jenkins on 15 октября, 2020

    I still remember the first time I saw roofs made of red clay tiles. I was visiting my grandmother in Santa Monica one hot summer, and I was enchanted by the city’s combination of terra-cotta roofs, stucco bungalows, cracked concrete streets, and tall, skinny palm trees. Santa Monica seemed warm and gracious, and those tile roofs evoked a

  • Zinnias: Rethinking a Farm Stand Flower
    by Michelle Slatalla on 12 октября, 2020

    Why do flowers go in and out of fashion? In the 18th century, German botanist Johann Gottfried Zinn received a shipment of Asteraceae seeds from Mexico that locally had been considered an ugly weed. In Europe their reputation fared better; Carl Linnaeus dubbed them “zinnias” after Zinn, who died young.  Two centuries later, the reliably colorful flowers of Zinnia
