a new project

Hello readers. A little note to let you know what the U of M edible landscape is up to this year, and where I've been lately. The edible landscape garden at the University of Minnesota is back in it's original spot, just in front of the plant growth facilities on the St. Paul campus. Quite a few edibles have been planted in other parts of the demo gardens, so if you visit, be sure to take a walk through all the gardens.

I've been a bit quiet on the blog because another project has been taking up much of my writing time. I'm in the midst of writing a book about landscaping with edibles, which is due to hit the shelves by early 2013. It has been a very fun, challenging and enlightening endeavor. Last week, a crew of us (photographers, editor, art director and me) descended upon a few homes and gardens in the Twin Cities area to capture the work of some creative and dedicated gardeners. The shots are beautiful, and I'm excited to start putting the whole thing together. 2013 seems like a long way off, but there's a lot of work to be done on the book before then, so it'll likely go very quickly.

I'll do my best to keep you updated on the project and keep up a little better with my writing here. If there are any topics you'd like to discuss, or anything that's been going on in your edible landscape this year that you'd like to discuss, leave a comment below. It would be great to hear from you and find out what you've been doing in your gardens this season.

Happy landscaping!
