Three years ago today I pressed “publish” on WesternGardeners.com for the first time. Since then I’ve written 386 blog posts, published hundreds of gardening images, and connected with thousands of gardeners. I’ve answered dozens of questions about insects, flowers and how to deal with the challenges of gardening in the West.
I’ve recommended gardening books to read, gardens to visit, and vegetables to grow (and recipes for using them in the kitchen). This blog inspired me to start a local campaign to Plant a Row for the Hungry and celebrate vegetable gardening with the Weird Veggie and Funny Fruit contest.
Let’s celebrate the beginning of my blog’s fourth year! Each week for the next month I’ll be giving away something to help gardeners get their 2012 gardening season growing.
Please stop by next week to find out how to win a copy of Katie Elzer-Peters new gardening book called “Beginner’s Illustrated Guide to Gardening: Techniques to Help You Get Started.”
