I can’t think of a better way to spend Earth Day than working in the garden. As we head into our fourth summer stewarding this property, it’s rewarding to see plantings maturing. This weekend we are taking stock of what’s thriving and, more importantly, what’s not. Next week I’m going to hear famed landscape designer Edwina von Gal speak about sustainable and natural design — she is one of my garden heroes. In a few years I would like to commission artist Leslie Wortmann to capture our hard work. Above are the perfect gifts for fellow gardeners: Sophie Conran tools for Burgon & Ball (here in the US), a wooden trug, slate plant markers, and the seed packets from Hudson Valley Seed Co. are mini works of art.
Happy Earth Day!:
