Good reading ahead

Last fall, I contacted gardener/writer Henry Homeyer to invite him to speak to our Master Gardener class.  Unfortunately, Henry was on his way to France and couldn’t attend, but we had a nice conversation, and he asked if he could contact me again and possibly write about my garden in his column.  I said yes, and promptly forgot about it until a few weeks ago, Henry called me and we had a nice chat about gardens and gardening, and producing food in a small garden.

At the end of our thoroughly enjoyable chat, (which may result in Henbogle garden being featured in his column), Henry offered me a review copy of his new book.  As I’ve read his column in our local paper for years, and enjoyed his earlier book, Notes from the Garden: Reflections and Observations of an Organic Gardener, I jumped at the chance.

Henry promptly sent it out and it arrived the other day.  I haven’t had a chance to delve in, yet, but am looking forward to reading it and sharing my thoughts here on Henbogle.  Thanks, Henry!

    Sweet! I was just sent a copy of a book by one of my gurus too. Harvey Ussery’s Small-Scale Poultry Flock. I got to read the MS during development, so I already know the book is excellent. But I’m re-reading it now and enjoying all the pictures, which weren’t included in the MS. It’s lovely to get these sorts of books – ones you know you’ll turn to repeatedly through the years.

    Henry is one of our neighbors. I’ve heard good things about his books but haven’t read any yet. He also has a column in the local papers.

      Oooh, lucky you! I’d love to see his garden! I like his column, over the years I’ve learned quite a bit.
