Moderately Confused

Here at the Home Kitchen Garden StoreI’m a bit slow on the uptake, but I don’t think it’s too late to say: Congratulations! Congratulations to my on-line gardening acquaintances who have recently published books.

I interact from time-to-time with all four authors of this book. You can own a copy of the book and get to know the authors as well.

Jean Ann Van Krevelen, who goes by @JeanAnnVK on Twitter, is one of the first gardening enthusiasts I met online when I started blogging. She recruited three other garden bloggers: Amanda Thomsen, Robin Ripley, and Theresa O’Connor (@kissmyaster, @robinripley, and @seasonalwisdom, respectively) and together they produced the book Grocery Gardening.

Gayla Trail, the author of the successful gardening book You Grow Girl, goes by the name @YouGrowGirl on Twitter. She recently published her second book, Grow Great Grub.

Reviews of both books have been very positive. Now, here’s the trick: for the history of publishing, it has been uncommon to meet or interact with the authors whose books you read. The emergence of social media has changed the game. Now you can buy these great books about gardening AND you can follow the authors on Twitter. You can also follow the authors’ blogs!

Gayla Trail’s second book is about growing food organically. Read it and also get to know Gayla through online social networking.

Please do it. Grocery Gardening and Grow Great Grub are attractive books that offer a lot of information for beginning and experienced gardeners. Buy them, read them, and get to know their authors through Twitter and their other online activities (Jean Ann and Amanda do a podcast called Good Enough Gardening, for example). It’s a unique experience, and you’re not likely to be disappointed.

Click the image of either book to order copies from or find the title on the carousel below and click to order (you can order any other books on the carousel as well). If you order, please do so from this page as I’ll earn a small commission on each book purchased through these links. Thank you for your consideration.
