Great Gardeners

One of my friend Dave’s creations has earned the recognition of Forbes.com’s Best of the Web Directory. Congratulations, you guys! The Garden Watchdog was already mentioned in Organic Gardening a few months back, and this is just one more example of its growing popularity (no pun intended…and much deserved, I might add). Best yet, it’s a great resource because it’s a community effort by gardeners. That reminds me of the DG motto: For gardeners, by gardeners.

On another note, I saw this smart gardener’s site linked to from Dave’s Garden and had to share. The gal’s come up with a self-watering pot for seed starting, using the humble 2-liter pop bottle. I suppose you could do the same thing with any similarly-shaped plastic bottle, but 2-liter is a good size. I am impressed! If you wanted to keep plants in such a container, you could always drop it into a basket to hide the plastic. Guess this gives me an excuse to buy more pop…and hoard bottles. Bwaaahahahahahah!
