Where in the World is WesternGardener?

Spring seems to have sprung without me.

There just aren’t enough hours in a gardening day to keep up this spring. I’m behind on everything.

I waited too long to order some specialty seeds. Then they were gone. The seeds I did have got started too late. The crocus started blooming before I had time to clear the leaf mulch so they could see the sun.

Instead of gardening, I’ve been writing about gardening.

I’ve been writing about how to attract birds to the garden for my Lowe’s Mountain Region Garden Grow Along blog. There was also Lowe’s Creative Ideas Outdoor Living magazine for spring with special regional gardening tips for Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Utah.

Grow, the Denver Post’s gardening section, is off and running and this is my seventh (seventh!) year writing for it. Last issue’s article was all about the new Plant Select introductions. Next up, vertical gardening.

Then there are the weekly deadlines for my VegetableGardener.com blog writing about high-tech gardening last week and Lake Valley Seed the week before.

I’ve also been working on the next edition of the e-Newsletter for Zone 4 Magazine.

In my spare time, I’ve been coordinating the second annual Plant a Row for the Hungry campaign in Denver. I’m excited the effort has grown so much so quickly. There will be three (three!) kick-off events in May, thanks to the help of generous sponsors and some great volunteers.

And then there was that week spent in chilly Boston touring historic garden sites.

It’s no wonder I haven’t had time to get into my own garden!
