CCG Is Runner-Up in 2010 Mouse & Trowel Awards

– Posted in: About this site

A big thank you to everyone who voted for Cold Climate Gardening, which was the runner-up in the Best Rural Gardening/Farming Blog category of the Mouse & Trowel garden blog awards. It is a high compliment, and I hope to provide you with more and better in the coming twelve months.

Congratulations to Kylee of Our Little Acre, who won in this category and in many others.

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.

Congratulations! I’m fixing up my mom’s garden in a cold climate while she recovers from a mastectomy, and I’ve found myself coming back to your blog over and over. I have a container garden in California. Thank you for the great posts!
