Seasons Greetings! I hope you had a joyous and peaceful Holiday with those that you love. Ours was just the right mix of family chaos and quiet at home time!
As we move beyond the busy Christmas week, I have been able to cross off an important gardening chore from my list - taking care of my tools. My tools are constant companions during the growing season and are crucial to the success of my garden so they deserve a little love and attention as they go into storage for the winter.

I was planning on waiting until after the Holidays to start my indoor lettuce garden but I feel the need to get my hands in the soil and lose myself in the rhythms of planting.

The latest "For the Love of Gardening" radio show, with me as the host, is now available as a pod cast. The show is about sustainability and green gardening and my guest is URI Outreach Center Interim Director, Kate Venturini.
The pod cast is in two ten minute parts:
The take away from the show is that nature provides us with all that we need in our gardens, we just need to know where to find it and how to use it.
