Behind the Scenes at GardenRant


Just a few business items:

  • We love our guest bloggers, so give us a shout next time you have a GardenRant-type topic.
  • Keep sending those tips, too.  We give credit where credit is due.
  • We’ll review anything, so send it along.Winterthur5web_2
  • And if you’re wondering, as I read recently, what "Amy, Michele and Susan are trying to say" about such-and-such, stop wondering.  We agree on our Manifesto but beyond that, it’s every woman for herself.  And don’t even think about holding us accountable for our unruly bunch of guest bloggers, experts, interviewees and response-writers.
