Long time followers will know I’ve had a lot of computer problems over the past year.
Problems magnified again yesterday when I couldn’t get into my websites or email. I won’t bore you with all the details, but it took me most of the day yesterday and most of today to even get to the point where it might be possible to continue.
The problems are not totally resolved. They probably won’t be in the foreseeable future, mainly because I don’t know enough to fix them. I can do a bit of research on the problem from time to time, but can’t give priority to spending more long days trying to get a website to work. Paying a tech person big bucks to fix the problem is not an option either.
In spite of all that, I still plan on walking in the direction of keeping the websites. With some good fortune, things will continue on TMG and flowerborders.info. and I’ll be able to provide you with more information to help you in your garden.
Being realistic, we all know that at some point in time anything can and probably will disappear from the internet. TendingMyGarden is no different, although no one knows for sure when that will be.
Hard Copy of the Basics
There is so much complicated gardening information out there that the vast majority of people have come to think that they can’t be successful in gardening without a lot of “stuff” and lot of complicated dos and don’ts. That’s just NOT true!
The primary reason I wrote Organic Gardening, Cutting Through the Hype to the 3 Keys to Successful Gardening is because I wanted there to be a “hard copy” of the 3 simple keys that lead to success in gardening. Also, I wanted to cut through the hype of 4 popular things that folks have come to think you “need”, and explain why you don’t have to have them to garden.
One long time reader wrote after she finished the book that she had had the same concern. “I have spent a considerable amount of time in the past worrying about how the information on your site would be available forevermore. I had been so concerned that it would be lost. At the least, I have the most important points and concepts in my hand in this book. “
Other Responses from Book Readers
I’ve had many wonderful responses to the book. At a later date, I’ll do a post sharing even more with you.
- Several readers, who are long time gardeners, have written saying they think my book is the first gardening book one should read. There is and always will be more to learn, but I agree that this book is an excellent foundation on which to build. You could be successful with just the basic information the book holds.
- One young woman who has recently become a partner in her Mom’s small successful seed company writes, “It was really informative. I liked how (you gave) logical reasons for why to garden in this way, and that you had personal experiences to back it up.“ And also, “Your book had so much good, basic information in it that I want to read it again.” (It pleases me that so many readers have expressed that same thought in their emails to me.)
- Another young woman writes that she listed my book on a Facebook survey “as one of the ten that have affected me most, not just because it has revolutionized my gardening and made my garden more productive… but also because, by your example, I have realized I am RIGHT in questioning the marketing BS… for my garden and for my life…“
- One reader who homeschools her kids, wrote and told me she used the book as part of her homeschooling program.
The book is out there doing its job. It’s inspiring gardeners and helping them be more successful. TMG and flowerborders.info extends the range of information available to you to help you achieve success.
One reader who was away on business when his book arrived, wrote the following after he finished the book:
“I arrived from San Paulo, Brazil, Thursday morning about 10:30 am and arrived home about noon. Had lunch, opened the package, and started reading “Organic Gardening”. Finished reading the book about 11:00 am this morning (Friday).
It was fantastic. The layout and photos were very good. They made your book very easy to read and understand. It invites non-organic gardeners to at least give it a try. I enjoy your web sites and this winter have reread most of the posts.
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time to write and publish a great book.”
I’ve had a lot on my plate of late, but if things go well I plan on writing more to help you be even more successful.
In the meantime, read as much of TMG and flowerborders.info as you can. And you may want to consider getting my book if you haven’t already.
