It pays to check the sidebars

It pays to check out the sidebars of the blogs you visit. That’s how I discovered Diary of a Plain Dirt Gardener, which was listed on the sidebar of Hands in the Dirt. Paul Krantz, author of DPDG, happens to be the Executive Editor for
Better Homes and Gardens Online and Midwest Living Online, so I’m sure he’ll have info that can be found nowhere else.

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.
