The History of Gardening – As Told By Marideth

IMG_0335Well, you’ll never guess what I’ve been doing. I’ve been spending these long hot afternoons, when the outside is not fit to be outside, in gathering up all the loose pieces of gardening commentery I’ve generated over the past decade and something, either from newspaper columns or blabs I’ve created for the radio – and putting them together in one place. Thinking I’ll make a book of them, and maybe an e-book as well. I’ve tried a number of things in a number of places over the years, and have learned a few things as well as discovered that some of the gardening knowledge I’ve held most dear just isn’t so. I’ll be posting a sample soon and you can tell me what you think of it if you like. It’ll be more musings than science, but I had fun going back through some of my experiences and reflections, and I hope you will too. Stay tuned.

    • Do not despair, Vanessa. All gardens are finicky, and even when treated with great respect and the best of intentions, may one day turn on you or swoon in the arms of unsavory company. The ones known as good gardeners are simply those fools who trudge on, muttering the gardener’s mantra, which is “Next year. Next year I’ll…” It’s pitiful, really, our attempts at courting Nature. She can be lovely, but is always fickle.
