The WAMU's Metro Connection radio show segment on "Gardening with Children" should air tomorrow than be archived on their site. I'll post a new link as soon as it is up.
Today I also book a 5-times as for the Washington Post Book World's classified section for the holiday season. I debated on that versus the Magazine or the Home section. In comparing ad prices, Book World wins hands down and frequency is the key. Also I think in Book World I reach more "readers" versus "skimmers" -- the readers are the ones more apt to actually subscribe. It should start running 11/18 through 12/16.
In the middle of sending out renewal notices now - fun, fun, fun. Actually not that bad, stuffing envelopes and slapping on stickers while watching "Ugly Betty" next to the fireplace with a cat curled on your lap is a pretty nice evening in.
Pictured here is a mum I got from one of the local Chrysanthemum Society sales last spring - I think the starts were $1.50 each or so. All I remember is I bought 3 different plants, stuck them in, and promptly ignored them -- no pinching in July as I should have and no watering throughout the drought. For that, they did pretty well. This one has a name like "Redskin Fan" - I forgot to note the exact title it had in my garden journal, but I do remember that it was described as blooming in the team colors and sure enough it is.
