My favorite Facebook quote of the week went something like this... the only blizzard you're supposed to get in May is from Dairy Queen!
Maybe if I leave town spring, perhaps summer, will move in for good while I'm gone.
It's exciting to be invited back to Garden2Blog with P. Allen Smith and twenty or so of the most engaging garden bloggers in the country. I'm honored. And hopefully the weather's warmer in Little Rock.
It's not a walk in the park, in fact last time I was there we dodged tornadoes while touring gardens and participating in all manner of gardening challenges and shenanigans. This year we received lots of pre-P. Allen "homework".
Bonnie Plants asked us to design an edible container garden in three containers; 24", 18" and 14" in size. I attempted to design something different from the winning garden themes of last year, but maybe I should have gone with something more tried and true. Nevertheless I had fun fumbling around with the color markers I managed to find around the house during one of our snow storms.
I'll let you know how I did next week when we all meet up and see what our collective genius came up with. Meanwhile, an email arrives telling us to choose our preferred color Le Creuset French Oven. The catch? Pick a winning garden-to-table recipe for the pot, cook and shoot photos, then send to Allen. He'll be posting the creations on his blog where you can vote for your choice. I made our family's favorite Shrimp Corn Chowder; it's tasty, full of veggies and quite colorful. Visit P. Allen's blog to see all of the entries.
More competitions to be announced. Follow all the fun and great info on The Garden Buzz facebook page (you can like it above) and Twitter @thegardenbuzz!
