Moosey’s has done what I have always dreamed of doing, but never had the skill or the time to pull off. They have assembled a collection of gardening newsfeeds in one convenient location for your perusal and enjoyment. If you don’t even want to know what an RSS feed is, much less set up a reader to aggregate them for you, mosey on over to Mooseys Gardening News Desk. At the top of the page on the right they have some general categories and the number of different sources in that category. For example, the Favourite Gardening Newsfeeds currently has 40 different feeds in it. Moosey’s gives me credit “for evangelising about gardening RSS feeds and her excellent gardening bloglines resource. After many days of hand-picking garden and gardening feeds from around the net you end up with a list that looks remarkably like Kathy’s :)”
I try very hard to make sure everything that’s on the Bloglines resource is in my Garden Blog Directory as well. But the fact of the matter is, I’m not keeping up with all the new garden or garden-related blogs out there. Jane Perrone has mentioned several blogs that I’ve just never gotten to. I see links on fellow gardeners sidebars that I keep meaning to explore. In fact, Moosey’s has several I hadn’t even heard of. And, in the process of porting this whole website over to WordPress, I want to flesh out the Garden Blog Directory that I started here. But, let’s face it, there’s only so much a homeschooling-gardening-writing mother of twelve can do in one day, especially when she’s teaching herself web design, CSS, php, and who knows what else as she goes. A tip of the hat to Moosey’s for getting done what I couldn’t. If you stop at the newsdesk, make sure you also look around the rest of the site. Moosey’s Country Garden is one of the biggest, bestest garden sites on the web. I’m glad they’ve finally added their own feeds, otherwise it’d be difficult to keep up. Now, if we could only get the major gardening magazines to join this game . . .
