Garden Gate is with it!

– Posted in: Recommended Links

I was at Syndic8 looking for any gardening feeds I might have missed, and discovered that Garden Gate magazine has a weblog! Way to go! It looks good, too. Regrettably, it seems to be only for their tips, which I was already getting as an RSS feed. But they get five gold stars for being a progressive provider of gardening web content. I wish all the gardening magazines would follow suit, and provide at least some, if not all, of their web content as an RSS feed.

Sooner or later, everyone rides a hobby horse. I guess this (RSS feeds for everyone) is mine.

About the Author

Kathy Purdy is a colchicum evangelist, converting unsuspecting gardeners into colchicophiles. She would be delighted to speak to your group about colchicums or other gardening topics. Kathy’s been writing since 4th grade, gardening since high school, and blogging since 2002.

Now, the digging and dividing of perennials, the general autumn cleanup and the planting of spring bulbs are all an act of faith. One carries on before the altar of delayed gratification, until the ground freezes and you can’t do any more other than refill the bird feeder and gaze through the window, waiting for the snow. . . . Meanwhile, it helps to think of yourself as a pear tree or a tulip. You will blossom spectacularly in the spring, but only after the required period of chilling.

The article doesn’t say much. But I think it would be useful to use in convincing commercial sites to give RSS a try, just because of the name recognition Forbes provides.

You’re ahead of the curve, as usual. See Forbes magazine explain RSS to the masses, here (
