Sources & Favorites

We have suggestions now and again, but we are in no way experts on many things.  Instead, as I get questions about this or that, I love to point folks in the direction of the real experts.  This page will contain links to places we've pointed readers when our experience and knowledge has fallen short.  I'll be adding to the list as we go.

Before I start the link list, I must say that Mother Earth News is a wonderful, wonderful resource.  We subscribe to their magazine and use their website often.  Click here to be taken to their home page, then enter whatever you're looking for into their search box.  Up will pop what you're looking for.  They do a fabulous job covering topics related to gardening that protect the environment, our bodies, our wallets as well as up and coming gardening ideas and practices.
