I spent today at a wonderful Spring Symposium organized by our local Master Gardeners who do so much to help us all improve our skills while offering us lots of inspiration. I bought a copy of the Week-by-Week Vegetable Gardener’s Handbook by Ron Kujawski and his daughter Jennifer, who live near by.
I know Ron from his days as a Cooperative Extension educator (and my days on the Extension Board). This sturdy spiral bound book published by Storey Publishing has all the down to earth information I expect from Ron, but it also has pages that make it operate as a three year garden journal. I am looking forward to putting the book and journal pages to good use.
Many Timber Press books were on sale too, and I have just started reading Ivette Soler’s book The Edible Front Yard which is part of a big Timber Press Giveaway. If you click here and leave your email address on the Timber Press website you’ll be entered in a drawing with a basketful of prizes.
First you will get 35 packets of organic heirloom vegetable seeds (worth $87) from Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply, and a bare root fruit tree, also from Peaceful Valley. In addition you’ll get a whole edible gardening library from Timber Press including:

Everyone is thinking about how they can take a little more control of the food they eat, and thinking how they can get more enjoyment out of the day. Timber Press is helping us all to do this with their excellent and beautiful books – and this chance to win them Good luck!
The Contest ends March 23! Don’t wait another moment.

It sounds like a great event. And I’m glad that Timber Press was a sponsor, too.
We (the South Carolina Botanical Garden) just hosted Doug Tallamy (Bringing Nature Home) this evening – a great presentation – his book is Timber Press.
Lisa – I am a great admirer of Doug Tallamy and I think his book is just terrific. Wish I could have heard him speak.
