Good-bye to Garden Variety

It has been three gardening seasons, 1,733 blog posts and one trip to a convention of garden bloggers just like me. Now it is time for Garden Variety to throw in the trowel, as it were.
This is the last post for Garden Variety. The Baltimore Sun has asked me do to other things. I am sad to see this venture end. It has been a pleasure for me to write about my garden -- and yours -- and to post all the beautiful pictures captured for me by The Baltimore Sun's photo staff.
I did my best to give you some advice and some fresh ideas for your garden -- even if it was only to point you toward someone who knows more than I.
Now that I am leaving the garden blogging scene, let me tell you who they are. Who knows, you might need them next spring.
Margaret Roach, who writes A Way to Garden, is one of the most thorough and informative garden bloggers out there. She has an abundance of advice and information on every topic. And she has a writing and photography gift as well. Please follow her.
Margaret lives in upstate New York, and her advice might be a little "off" for those in the Mid-Atlantic. For regional advice and for Maryland garden events and information, please follow Susan Harris who blogs for both Behnke's in Beltsville and Homestead Gardens in Davidsonville.
Susan also writes for the blog, Garden Rant. If you like your garden writing with a hint of controversy, follow Susan and her pals there.
Also, for those of you here in Maryland, follow Kathy Jentz of Washington Gardener. Lots of advice, trips, tours and events. Kathy never sits still.
There are a hundred garden blogs out there. Maybe 1,000. Some rainy day, get out your computer and google around for them. You will find someone who speaks to you. I am sure of it.
In the meantime, you won't be seeing me on the Internet. But you can always find me in my garden.
The posts here on Garden Variety will remain indefinately. You can always search the entries if there is information you are just sure you saw here -- and need to find again.
