We’re pleased to report on another lively article by the always witty Michele Owens, this time in the May issue of Organic Gardening. I’ve always wondered how anyone manages to deal with two homes and two gardens. In her essay, "A Tale of Two Gardens," she tells it like it is. I could particularly relate to this bit about her city garden:
Gardening in the city is also shockingly social. Everybody who walks by–madman, nongardening matron, and FedEx guy alike–is a critic. One woman actually said to me, "There are too many spaces between the plants." Give me a minute, I’m planting as fast as I can! Of course, all this civic interest helps to justify my outrageous spending on tulips. I’m doing it for the people.
Keep it up, Michele. And welcome to any OG readers who found their way here by way of her byline.Posted by Garden Rant on April 19, 2007 at 2:57 pm, in the category Unusually Clever People, Who's Ranting About Us.
