BLOG RECOMMENDATION MONDAY: Rock Out with the Heavy Petal Blog

This week we are rockin' out in the garden with Andrea Bellamy, the creator of the Heavy Petal blog.

Andrea's blog focuses on sustainable practices, and garden design for small urban spaces. Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, she brings her West coast ideas to the world of blogging.

One reason why the Heavy Petal blog caught our attention is the Heavy Petal Garden Tour. Her blog has this great feature where readers can post 5-10 photos of their own gardens for others to see. Being able to see what has worked for others is a good way to get ideas for your own garden! Andrea also has some really great posts like her how to piece on creating a hanging flower basket, or the before and after story on the stages of growth of a Painted Lady butterfly.

We love that she put a penny

next to this Red Russian garlic,
it gives such a great perspective on size.

Andrea is taking her blog ideas and putting them onto paper. She has written a book titled "Sugar Snaps and Strawberries: Simple Solutions for Creating Your Own Small Space Edible Garden," which will be available in late December 2010. Congrats Andrea! We cant wait to take a look! In the mean time Andrea says she loves to get comments and feedback so check out her blog and if you have any pictures your willing to share think about joining the Heavy Petal Tour!
