The Blog Generation Takes Up Its Trowels
You Grow Girl was interviewed for an New York Times article about young, urban gardeners.
Spring really, truly is finally here and I’ve been taking every opportunity to capture it on film.
This photo of a crocus cluster was taken in my garden using a homemade pinhole camera I constructed from a broken camera and a pie tin.
Canadian Gardening – Site of the Month
“Sassy, unconventional and totally passionate about plants, You Grow Girl is refreshingly, um, fresh. The work of Toronto-based Gayla Trail and a host of volunteer contributors from around the world, You Grow Girl re-defines gardening for a new generation of gardeners. Under a cheeky veneer of scorn for conventional gardening wisdom lies a solid base of horticultural information delivered in Sex in the City style. From Jane Eaton Hamilton’s Adequate Gardener column (I admit it, I’m addicted) to the catnip test-off (which brand does your cat prefer?), the website is full of chuckles, surprises and, er, fun. Send a You Grow Girl e-card to a friend, read a plant journal, post a question to a forum or submit a gardening tip, whatever. Get real, get gardening with You Grow Girl.”
