The Edible Schoolyard, by famed organic chef Alice Waters. Read this book and get inspired to suggest changes at school, too.
To mark this most anticipated of days, I'd prepared a blog post on gardening, the uber-chic pastime of 2009--even the Obamas are doing it. I was prepared to expound on the therapeutic benefits of reconnecting with the earth, of cultivating life, and of nourishing your family in a more natural and holistic way. Yes, I was going to blog at length about these things today.
Then, I looked out my window to see that it is snowing. Big, fluffy, white, "I'm-not-ceding-the-season-yet!" flakes are tumbling down on the other side of my window pane. (Though at present, they don't appear to be sticking. I will take this as proof of God's mercy.)
So now I'm kind of too bummed out to pontificate on the joys of Springtime gardening. I will, however, share some good gardening resources with you.
The National Gardening Association. Seed swaps, pest control advice and how-to videos. One-stop shopping for the expert and the novice alike.
Second Nature, by Michael Pollan, a self-proclaimed "child of Thoreau." This book inspires the gardener trapped inside.
Daffodil Planter, gardening with a sense of humor.
