- A couple book reviews, plus a round-up of some garden books that I've either recently come across or that have really proved their worth--just in case you have any gardeners on your Christmas list.
- A DVD review.
- A report on the International Plant Propagators conference I attended last month in Salem, Oregon.
- Some notes on how the vegetable harvest has been going in my garden.
- A long overdue post on the almost year-long effort I've been making to re-landscape my front yard.
- Some other miscellaneous ramblings about what's going on in the back yard.

The last couple months have been so busy with work that in spite of my best intentions (and a long list of topics to write about), I hardly posted here at all. When I wasn't working I was feeling either the pressure or the temptation (depending on my mood) to spend my time actually gardening rather than blogging about gardening. But I seem to have a break in the action over the next few days before more work comes in and I hope to use that time to get some posts done that have been simmering quietly in the dark recess of my mind (you know, like compost).
