• The good news? Very few grenades this year. Yay.

• I owe my friend Pam a public apology. I should have shared this video, from Central Texas Gardener, with her earlier in the year. The squash borers have attacked her garden. Maybe this video will help someone else?

Wonderful story from up in Boston a retired cabby and his piece of the old Fenway Victory Garden.

Also uplifting is this story about an Ohio Victory Garden that is handicapped accessible.

• Thanks to the Internet, it has been fun to watch Victory Garden Initiative grow up in Milwaukee.

•Speaking of awesome, have you seen the new Peterson Garden Project web design Smoking’! LaManda gave me an awesome biz card with the new design back when we met up with Holly and Jenny for lunch in February.

Breaking News: “American Grown” by First Lady Michelle Obama Slated for May 29, 2012 Release

Per a conversation that I had with Crown Publishing via Twitter on Friday, Michelle Obama’s book, American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America will be released on May 29, 2102.

This is about a month later than earlier press reports had indicated. (See original press release.) You can preorder now.

Note that there is now a Facebook page for the book, which several RW&G FB fans are now following since I posted this:

Really looking forward to reading this book and watching the reception, which should be interesting.
