A blog about my adventures as a professional garden writer, radio show host and obsessive veggie gardener! My first book, the award-winning, The Year Round Vegetable Gardener, was widely released in December 2011. Look for Groundbreaking Food Gardens, my follow-up book, coming in March 2014!

Ouest-Ville Perennials Update!
What a fantastic time today at Ouest-Ville Perennials in West Pubnico, NS.. the rains held (mostly) off and it was fabulous to talk to such enthusiastic gardeners (Ann Jones, who puts together the great magazine, Scotia Gardener, Paula Smith, Neil LeBlanc Jr - the worm poop man! and many many more) Such a great turn out - thanks to everyone who came by this afternoon for the book signing, veggie growing Q & A, cookies and coffee! Also, a huge thanks to the wonderful team at Ouest-Ville Perennials, including Alice, Margie (and everyone who I am forgetting to name in writing this so quickly!) for so generously hosting me today. It was a fantastic afternoon and I can't recommend the nursery enough for any plant lover - whether your passion is perennials, grasses, annuals, veggies or roses.
Neil and I admiring his poop - does that sound weird??!? Worm poop!
