Gratuitous picture of a self-seeded wallflower which is looking very pretty at the moment
In between potting up about 500 seed trays over the last couple of months I've been involved in the launch of a brand new blog. Entitled Root Cause, it's a joint effort between myself and Patrick at Bifurcated Carrots but the idea is for it to become a multi-contributor blog, so if you like the look of it and want to write something for us please get in touch. It's just gone live today with a post about perennial onions and will aim to cover a range of subjects broadly connected with biodiversity, self-sufficiency, heirloom and open-pollinated vegetables, plant breeding and local and home-made things.
In its early stages it will probably focus mainly on gardening, since that's what Patrick and I are mostly into and feel most qualified to write about, but we're hoping it will evolve into something different from our current blogs and involve more people (bloggers and non-bloggers) who feel they have something to say. Ideas, comments and suggestions are very welcome!
