The Renegade Gardener is a must-read

– Posted in: Recommended Links

Just stumbled across the website of The Renegade Gardener, the self-proclaimed “lone voice of horticultural reason for USDA Zones 2 through 4.” He’s opinionated (check out the ten tenets of renegade gardening), funny (read his bio), and informative (study up on his garden myths). I would like to think that this blog is another voice of reason for the cold climate gardener, but his site is a definite must-read.
