Has anybody noticed that we’ve been sending our readers to the New York Times for interesting plant-related stories all week? What gives? For years, I’ve thought that the paper of record simply couldn’t do gardening well because it was run by urbanites who just had no idea. (Though I do have a friend who’s a reporter there and an avid gardener in brownstone Brooklyn.)
Maybe, in the midst of an oil crisis, climate change, war in Iraq, and an energy-related recession here at home, we are nonetheless having a beautiful moment, when even urbanites have become interested in their relationship with God’s green earth. All I can say, is, yeah!
