GR: Honest and Unpolished

A shout-out to Patrick Berkery at PhillyBurbs, who has this to say about GardenRant: Simply put, the from-the-hip horti-centric blog Garden Rant is one of the most honest and unabashedly unpolished online resources for gardeners out there. That is what makes it such an engrossing, refreshing read.
