Today Constance Casey posts on Slate about hiring out the making and maintaining of your vegetable garden. To me, this sounds like hiring a team to go to parties for you, or to eat delicious dinners for you, or to have laughs with your friends for you, just so you won’t have to bother.
Hiring a garden coach, on the other hand, is like paying somebody to go to the party with you for moral support, to tell you how nice you look and encourage you to chat up strangers. Makes perfect sense for the diffident. And this piece, like any piece on the subject, naturally features our own pioneering garden coach, Susan Harris.
