My Gardening Calendar and Garden and Cookbooks Make Great Gifts!

Dear Folks,

I am making turkey stock as I type - our family get together yesterday was fun and satisfying and I hope yours was lovely too.

My gardening calendar and beginner's gardening book are great gifts for the desert southwest and USDA Zone 9b and above gardeners.

You can follow the links below to individual books or the calendar at my publisher's site.

The Amazon link is to my author's page showing all of my books and the current and prior calendars

After you check out the links, enjoy one of my favorite "flash mob" youtube videos - just fun and you can see the happy smiles of those folks - dealing with holiday travel times.

My Perpetual Gardening Calendar has month-by-month planting and sowing tips, seasonal maintenance and some recipes to inspire you.

After getting your early shopping done, hop out into your garden and get more of your sowing and growing on.  My December Planting Tips are here.

Are you growing edible flowers, whether dedicated plants or herbs with flowers?   Why not try drying petals in the refrigerator (on paper towels - loose not clustered) to create the ultimate flower garnish for your meals.  Start with however many flower petals you have, at one end of your towel and add to, as the flowers reach perfect bloom.  When all are completely dried store in glass or plastic containers in the dark.

Have a great weekend!
