17 Nov Twitter Garden Friend’s Blogs
My Twitter gardening friends are a wonderful resource of information for you and I both and I want to offer them a “shout out” today. I learn a great deal from them and I hope that you will check out their blogs and gardening information. I know that many of you probably visit these blogs already but just in case not, please check out:
You Grow Girl– Gayla (@yougrowgirl) of course, is an expert in the industry and well-regarded for her plant knowledge. This recent post on Butternuts was an unusual topic and also very educational. I think that nuts in general do need more attention, especially as they are a great source of protein.
Robin at Bumblebee Blog (@bumblebeegarden) blogged this week about her pet chicken, Maxine. Unfortunately, Maxine is the second Maxine she has had and also the second to die early. Adding to the frustration was an attempt to find a veterinarian who treats pet chickens-to no avail. Rest in peace, Maxine. Sorry for your loss, Robin.
Garden Punk–@Gardenpunk posted a new one on her blog and you’ve GOT to check out her gorgeous maple tree. Never seen leaf color quite like that! Plus, I am so happy to see that she is still planting in raised beds-my fave. You go, GardenPunk!
Garden3R– @garden3r recently wrote about using garlic for pest control-a topic I find very interesting as you know I am into organic growing whenever possible. It apparently works best as a preventative spray and won’t kill the good things off that are needed in your garden. Very cool.
