After reading Felder Rushing’s newest book, Slow Gardening: A No-Stress Philosophy for all Senses and Seasons, we wanted to be able to share the love with a giveaway.
If you haven’t heard about this book, check it out here.
There are so many things in there I can relate to. I especially like his Gardener’s Bill of Rights, which includes such provisions as, The right to grow too many tomatoes every year, The right to mispronounce plant names (I can’t recall how many times I have apologized over not knowing how to say a plant’s name), and The right to prune or not prune too leggy plants, no questions asked.
It’s about time someone spoke out against guilt over such things as deadheading, clashing flowers, and goofy gardening attire.
We’re giving away two copies to two readers. If you’d like to put yourself in the running, follow this link to Chelsea Green Publishing and you’ll find a giveaway page especially for our readers.
Do you think you might qualify as a “slow” gardener?
Some days I think I’m not much of a gardener at all, like now, when all my brassicas are shot full of cabbage worm holes and my herb garden has been smothered by crazed marigolds.
But I’m still a gardener.
