News From the Homestead: Merry Christmas To You!

We have nearly reached the end of 2013, a year that I for one found to be rather difficult. I won’t bore you with the details of my trials except to say I am heartily glad to be nearing the start of a new year.

Next year is shaping up to be a bit better. In the first quarter I will be speaking in Georgia in January and South Texas in March. In between those jaunts I will be working on a book to be published by Quarry Publications. The working title is “Fresh and Flavorful Herbs,” a collaboration between myself and a chef from California on how to grow and enjoy fifteen herbs. Later in the year I plan to attend the Garden Writers Association Symposium in Pittsburg. Along the way I will continue to write for Herb Quarterly and Neil Sperry’s Gardens.

And now I’ll let you get back to enjoying the season. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May your times together be satisfying and filled with good times.
