Bullets and Butterflies

I attended a two-hour workshop about edible landscaping last week, sponsored by the Delaware Cooperative Extension. Although I'm fairly knowledgeable on the topic and have read many of Rosalind Creasy's books (including the hugely resourceful The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping), I was hoping for specific info concerning native plants and "edibles" suitable for my home state of Delaware. I wasn't disappointed! After hearing about the Paw Paw, a unique and native fruit, I'd love to plant it if only I had the space!

I just received my 2010 copy of The Almanac for Farmers & City Folk. I've been writing for the annual publication for the past five years, and I'm pleased that the Editor, Lucas McFadden, and the Executive Editor, Thomas Alexander, selected six of my articles for this edition:
Of course, the issue includes 14-month weather forecasts, fishing and planting tables, nostalgia, cooking tips, the zodiac, bizarre stories--the usual fun stuff you find in almanacs!
Keep an eye out for a copy at newsstands and book stores in the coming month or so! You can also order a copy here.
