Planet Natural: The Blog
Notice anything different? Your friendly, accessible Planet Natural Blogger is all green — and not with envy — over the new look of the Planet Natural Gardening Blog. After nearly a year of posting on natural topics, everything from apples to xeriscapes, we’ve made it easier to find the subjects you’re looking for and reading about them when you do. And if you’re a first-time visitor… welcome! We hope you find just the information you’re looking for as well as some surprises.
We’ve learned so much over the last months exploring various issues of concern to organic gardeners and those dedicated to the natural lifestyle. And we’ve enjoyed sharing our gardening experiences with you, as well as learning new things when you share your experiences with us. That’s a big part of what’s behind our new design… community! We want to make it easier for you to comment and share your knowledge with us. Whether you’re following the discussion here or over on our Facebook page where there’s even more sharing and exchange (or checking in on both) we want — we need! — your participation. A community of natural growers, whether it comes together in a gardening club, while working shared or locally-owned plots, or during a casual exchange of ideas with a neighbor over the garden fence, is all about knowledge. Share yours with us. And if there are issues we’ve overlooked, or we’ve missed some important news on subjects we’re all interested in — say, GMOs, climate change, or dangers of pesticide use — let us know!
In the meantime, we hope you’ll take time to explore the new site, poke into its corners and turn over some new subjects. Check out the right-hand column for topics that are of special concern to all organic gardeners. Dig deep with past-posts listed under “Know More … Grow More” and find what others are reading under “Popular Articles.” Not sure if that larva on your tomato plant is there to eat its leaves or the aphids clustering underneath them? Check out the comprehensive information — with pictures! — listed under “Pest Problem Solver” for help with identification and natural, integrated management solutions for all your bad bug problems.
Mostly, we’ll continue what we’ve been doing: taking up seasonal and timely issues concerned with organic and natural gardening. Again, we encourage your participation. If you have ideas and knowledge that you feel will help others in their quest to grow green…plant it here! And thanks for reading.
