Happy New Gardening Year to You!
One of my favorite gifts from the holiday season is this happy solar-powered sunflower. When light shines on its adorable solar cell, the flower sways from side to side and the leaves bounce up and down. This little plant doesn’t need any batteries, water or special care.
If only all gardening could be so easy!
You may have noticed I took a December break from the computer. I kept up with my VegetableGardener.com blog for the Fine Gardening magazine network, but I used the rest of that time to recharge my own solar-cell.
Stepping away from the keyboard was refreshing. I spent time brainstorming new ideas for articles, planning new gardening projects and thinking of ways to make WesternGardeners.com a better resource for gardeners.
I hope you’ll stick around to see what’s in store.
Next week I’m planning a special reader giveaway you won’t want to miss, especially if you’re interested in heirloom vegetable gardening. Please stop by on Monday to read all about it!
