Gardening community at Blotanical and Fig Preserve day

I have been very pleasantly surprised to find that there is a very tight, interesting, committed and sharing community of Urban Homesteader/Organic Gardeners. Through Blotanical, I have been introduced to a huge number of blogs, several that I now follow regularly. I have even had people offer to send me seeds when I express an interest in a beautiful vegetable. I have chatted and asked and answered questions. If you love gardening blogs, there are almost three thousand listed in Blotanical. I follow 55 every day (they are listed in the My Favorite Blogs over to the right!) and many of them were found on Blotanical.

This evening I made my first batch of fig preserves. It took a couple hours to reduce it, but it really is quite easy. Allan was a huge help as an extra set of hands. I can't wait to dig in and try some. On the weekend!!
