My garlic post is up at AOL's Shelterpop.
I checked this year's cloves yesterday: the one I dug up (gently) had little roots! I was afraid they might have been irradiated, hence sterile. All seems well. Now waiting for shoots.
Sumien Brink (the editorial director of New Media Publishing, and editor in chief of Visi Magazine and of Taste) let me know today that she'd just looked at the April issue of Visi in which 66 Square Feet appears in a four season feature, and that it looks good. Yay! I have seen the spread in pdf format and even that was exciting.
The magazine will hit the streets on April 14th and I will be sure to remind you SAfricans and expats to sniff it out. Hopefully you will also become hooked. It's beautiful. The April issue is about all things green, edible, local and lekker. Working with Visi editor Johan van Zyl was a pleasure. His interview with me as well as some of my tips on how to make a small space work for you, garden-wise, will accompany the pictures.
And now I'm off to plant my Lilium superbum - they were just delivered by UPS. And maybe I'll lay some more snail traps.
