I’m an expert, that is, if being quoted in the newspaper makes you an expert. Dean Fosdick writes regularly on gardening topics for the Associated Press, and contacted me for information on gardening blogs and other uses of the computer in gardening. He told me it would run around February 1st, but I just discovered it on the Salt Lake Tribune website. He did get one detail wrong: I didn’t design a feed reader, I just use one–Bloglines. But that’s all explained on the Garden Blog Directory, which he provides a link to at the end of his article. If you are reading this because of that link, welcome! I hope you learn something helpful and come back again.
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.
