Another “Local” Blog

I know that most of you reading this blog are either enamored with my elegant prose or are interested in vegetable gardening. Still…some of you might be a little bit interested in lawns, weeds, or ornamental plant topics. (I have no idea why, but you might have a reason.) If that is the case, I’d like to point you toward a new blog started by the K-State Turfgrass folks.

You can find the KSU Turfgrass Blog at

Local Garden Blog Highlight: Gaia Garden

I know there are a lot more interesting local garden bloggers out there than just the few I’ve stumbled across. Here’s one of the blogs I follow from a local gardener: Gaia Garden. She’s been on something of a winter hiatus (and just plain busy!), but she’s been back posting in the past couple weeks, with some very thought-provoking (or hilarious) posts. Here’s a sample:

Waste Not, Want Not – Gaia Gardener talks about the amount of food we waste. I think I do pretty good with this, but I know there is some rancid celery in the refrigerator.

Confessions of a Plant-a-Holic – We’ve all been there, right? Caught ordering too many plants or seeds, then stuck unable to get them into the ground?

A Scary Thought – Gaia Gardener takes a look at aphid reproduction…You know you want to click through to see this post!

So head on over to Gaia Garden and check out another local garden blog!
