That's MY blog!

This spring I reviewed a new swedish gardening/interior design magazine called Rosie. I did subscribe to it too, since I liked it. Now, a few days ago the last issue arrived. I flip through it in that semiconsiuos stage the parent of a toddler experience in the evening. Today I finally read the copy. To be honest I had a plan to plug my blog by sending a letter to the editor and include my url in the text.

Someone else had already done that. (Do read her blog if you know swedish.)

"Dang." I thought and was about to go on with my chores when this huge, praising citation printed in orange on the letters page caught my eye. There was a reference, with url, to Parkettodlaren (the swedish version of Indoor Gardener)!

Now I'll lean back and enjoy my fifteen minutes of fame before I go back to my plants. For you I'll sample my tips for the season, enjoy!

  • Extra light
  • Selfwatering containers
  • Chopped garlic on the soil to scare away the sciriadae
  • Common purslane survives most mishaps and you can harvest it for a long period of time.
  • Sprouts (if you are not oversensitive to them - I am, but the sprouts are in general a great indoor crop)

(You can buy the picture as a poster or on a mug in my Cafe Press shop btw.)
