It's not all about gardening

Sometimes, it's time to garden. And sometimes, it's time to get together and eat some food and drink some beer. For the Garden Posse, that time was last night. We gathered in my tiny studio apartment and talked about things that are not gardens or potential gardens. Like Sarah Palin, for example. Sarah Palin is not a garden, nor does she inspire us to garden. She just inspires us - and the entire country - to talk about her.

But anyhow. The potluck was fun and delicious, and I made my first ever panazella, for which the recipe is here, if you're interested in recreating a special moment. And then you can invite us all over to your house to share.

I keep forgetting to mention that someone left a garden temper with a blue handle behind on the very first dig. I put it in a prominent place in my house last night, but again forgot to mention it. Apparently this hand tool is very forgettable. If you forgot it, and you want it back, let me know. Otherwise, I'll count it as a donation and try to figure out how to use it.

So next week, we'll return for the final week to the garden at 34th & Guadelupe. Then, we'll decide where to move our roaming garden posse next. Maybe we'll just close our eyes and zoom in on a Google map of Austin. Or we could make a responsible decision. Who knows? Come and find out.

Oh, and a note on the blog: I've transferred ownership to a new Garden Posse account. Now you can contact us at And now you can also contribute to the blog, when you email and say that's what you would like to do. Wouldn't you? But if you are more of the spectator/lurker type, you can request to receive an email every time this blog is updated. Technology offers something for everyone.
