I have a garden in Zone 5 (or so I'd like to think on optimistic days)…or is it Zone 4? I'm an attorney (by trade) and a mother (by great fortune). I've been a gardener for a relatively short time, but a bookworm all my life.
Horticulture, Jan Perrone's organic allotment and garden blog:
I'm Jane Perrone, and I am a keen organic allotmenteer and gardener.
I also work as deputy editor, news and politics at Guardian Unlimited, the website of the Guardian newspaper in London, where I write for News blog about blogging, technology and other things.
This blog is for writing about the things I don’t get to cover at work: the trials and treasures of nurturing my garden and allotment.
I write about the things I wanted to read when I set out learning about horticulture: how do you set up a wormery? What the hell is a barbietola di chioggia? How do I become a gardener if I only have a windowsill in my flat?
(As best I can tell, an "allotment" is a British term for a piece of land that is leased specifically for agricultural purposes.)
