This week I have been posting pictures of my recent trip to Whinfell in Cumbria but what has been going on elsewhere?
New Blog on the Block: [Girl] Gardening
New blog [Girl] Gardening is a blog about a girl who is a trainee garden designer and allotmenteer. It is the sister blog to Little Muddy Boots and will be featuring posts about life as a student and first time allotment owner.
If you follow Little Muddy Boots on Twitter then you may have seen the blog posts as they go up, alternatively head over to the site and sign up for email updates.
Time to Read: Edible Book Club
This week, on-line book club Edible Books is coming to the end of their first week reading Toast by Nigel Slater. It is getting some mixed reviews but is like a trip down a sweet filled memory lane for the British members of the club.
Join the delicious debate on Twitter.
Blogs I Read: My Tiny Plot
My Tiny Plot was the first blog that I ever read about gardening. I used to read it every week before setting up Little Muddy Boots but somewhere between motherhood, student life and writing about my own garden I stopped reading but this weekend I took half an hour to see what has been going on in Gillian Carson’s Tiny Plot. It is no longer tiny and no longer in the UK as she has relocated to the US. My Tiny Plot is a weblog of gardening, vegetable growing and family life.
Blogs I Read: The Rowdy Chowgirl
The Rowdy Chowgirl was one of the first food blogs that I ever read and one of the few that I still read now. Her blog is packed full of food and travel stories and is a delight to read. This year Christina and I joined forces and created Edible Books (see above).
Blogs I Read: Garden Slave
I have only just found Garden Slave’s blog by way of Twitter. It is written by John, a fellow Yorkshire person, who now lives in the Lake District – one of my favourite places in the world. He writes about gardening, trips down memory lane and reports on a somewhat bohemian life.
I was going to write something about Twitter but for the last few days it has all been about X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and The Royal Baby. None of which I am too bothered about.
