One of my paying gigs is writing (and some photography) for a new gardening magazine called Garden Making. This last week, the magazine celebrated a year in publication with four issues in print. That is no small feat for a specialized print magazine, on the topic of gardening (in Canada, no less), in the age of screen versus print reading, and IN THIS ECONOMY. Big congratulations to the Fox family who are working together to grow a quality gardening publication one issue at a time.
My article in the latest issue, called A Perpetual Feast is on growing a perennial food garden and includes a bit of background as to how I stumbled away from the annual vegetable model (aka the Scorched Earth approach) while experimenting in my community garden.
I have written three other articles for the magazine all on the topic of food gardening. The topics I have covered so far include: A profile of 5 of my favorite unusual vegetables, 6 edibles that thrive through the cooler months, and an in-depth piece on growing garlic that includes a few unusual types of garlic that are seldom written about.
The magazine has agreed to give away a one year subscription to one of you. Just tell us in the comments about one interesting edible you are growing or hope to grow next year and I’ll pick someone at random on Friday.
UPDATE: The winner is Kathi from Toronto.
Please keep telling us about the edibles you are growing or hope to grow. Your stories are great!
