Comments that have fertilized the inadvertent garden

Over at ProBlogger this week, Darren Rowse is hosting a group blogging project focused on lists. I thought I’d take the opportunity to participate by looking back at a selection of ways commenters have helped me and Steve through our first season of gardening.

This is by no means a ranked or comprehensive selection–I’ve been amazed at the breadth and depth of the comments that have come my way through the blog, and these are just some of the highlights. Thanks to everyone who has helped out, and I hope you continue to offer advice–one of the coolest things about this garden blogging experience is watching people find their way to the site because they’re looking for answers about their own gardening problem. I might not be able to help them, but my commenters definitely have provided plenty of advice that did the trick!

Thanks to everyone who takes the time to stop by and share wisdom, or just a reaction to a post. I love participating in this ongoing conversation, and look forward to continuing it, even beyond the last harvest of the year!

    I love commenters. I made a list a few weeks ago of 13 of the sweetest comments I had received that week – I really love the ideas and sweet notes that I receive this way, it’s just a wonderful thing! Our list is up if you’d like to look… have a great day!

    Thanks for the thanks. I hope I also taught you something about hoes along the way.
