Farming the Urban Backyard

It seems like today is Backyard Homestead day—we've just received an early copy of the New York Times Book Review that will be on newsstands this weekend. In it you'll find a charming review of The Backyard Homestead in the Gardening Round-Up, complete with this quote: "This fascinating, friendly book is brimming with ideas, illustrations, and enthusiasm. The garden plans are solid, the advice, crisp; the diagrams, as on pruning and double digging, are models of decorum. Madigan makes it all look so easy..." Although we can't link to the review until Saturday, I hope you'll check back into Inside Storey to comment on this publishing phenomenon! There's also a wonderful article on Urban Farming in today's Boston Globe Food/Arts stand-alone insert, with an interview with Carleen Madigan contained within.

Go grow something.
