award!!!

I'm the recipient of an award from HORTICULTURE Magazine!!! How cool!! Thank you, I'm honored.

The award is for "Best Gardening Blog" and editor Jenny Koester posted a nice review of my blog on her blog: Best Gardening Blog—Skippy’s Vegetable Garden.

She even gave me a fancy badge to post. I'll get it onto my side bar soon.

I think in honor of the award - and to spite the snow - I'll go outside right now and bring my seedlings to the cold frame to start hardening off. Its 45*F right now inside the frame. Some of the snow on the cover in the photo below has begun to melt. March 1 seems like a good day to start bringing new seedlings out!

CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve it. Your blog is wonderful. I've never wanted to "blog" until I started reading yours about gardening.

Fantastic, you deserve it. When I happened upon your Blog I had never had the inclination to regularly read anything on the internet. But with your warm, informative, homely writing I was hooked! Congratulations, is there anything you can plonk in a Martini at this time of year?? Actually it looks like plenty of icy snow to put in the glass. Cheers!

Very well deserved. After two years of urban gardening in a 100 sf space, I still find you write my favorite garden blog. And not just because you're from Boston and drink martinis. Although the martinis do give you points, esp. when they have little tiny veggies in them...

Finally I found a vegetable gardening blog!! I'm so excited! I hope to learn a lot from you. (Although we have extremely different weather - zone 8-California) I am in the process of building raised beds for my first vegetable garden....I have a lot to learn!
Congratulations on your award....at this point, the only reward I would like is garden success!

Having recently taken in a large black dog, and having recently decided to try my hand (thumb?) once again at a backyard vegetable garden, I stumbled across your blog and found just the right mix of inspiration I was looking for. Thank you and congratulations!
