First of all, special thanks to Lisa at yourgardenshow.com for posting a lovely photo essay about us on their awesome site! You can view the Good Life Garden photo essay here. She visited the garden this past weekend and took some wonderful photos which she posted along with detailed captions including all of the plant names.
yourgardenshow.com is a fantastic new social networking website that brings together gardeners of all skill levels across the globe, with the goal to "to elevate the importance of gardening, and in so doing expand the global gardening footprint."
The site is easy to use and has tons of cool features - including a database of 6,000 vegetables (including 778 tomatoes!) developed by Cornell University, and a 5,900 ornamental plant database powered by Missouri Botanical Garden, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the U.S.A. Like facebook, you can also create an account with your very own GLOG (Gardening Log - love the name!) which includes an interactive timeline feature where you can track your projects and your garden's growth. It also has a new tagging feature where you can draw from their database to tag specific plants in photos that you post on your profile page! Check out the super cool tagging feature video here.
Thanks to our new friends at yourgardenshow.com! I hope you check out the site and sign up - it's a great place to get inspiration, build a community and learn new gardening techniques!
