In her article “The Best Gardening Periodicals, Forums and Blogs”, Barbara Damrosch recommends two blogs.  First, Kitchen Gardeners International’s blog, then:

“The other blog is Garden Rant ( ), which gives good information, hosts lively and knowledgeable guest ranters, and is anchored by four outstandingly uppity women, excellent writers all.”

That, from the author of the The Garden Primer, the revered go-to source for the growing of food.  We’re big fans!  So we’re not too uppity to show some gratitude for her very kind words.  Thank you, Barbara!

Now, I’m going to go ponder the possible degrees of uppitiness, up to  “outstandingly” and beyond.  And I wonder if the people we live with would describe that quality we all share in quite the same way.
