saved by seeds: on newsstands now

my article on heirloom tomatoes came out today! it’s in the spring issue of boise--copies are for sale at grocery stores and bookstores, but free copies are usually available at moxie javas and flying m (and probably some other random places) so if you live in the boise area keep an eye out. here’s the cover so you know what to look for:

i have another piece with photos in there too. i don’t usually get excited about my articles but this tomatoes one is special. i broke it up into sections about biodiversity, a few special varieties, starting and saving seeds, tips on growing them locally, etc., and it's a pretty large word count (with lots of photos, yay!) so it covers six whole pages. if anyone is interested in reading it and is unable to get their hands on a copy, leave a comment and i’ll email you a pdf. i would post the whole thing on here but i don’t know how that jives with copyright laws and whatnot...i’m sure no one would care, but still.

Congratulations! The photos are stunning, and tomato growing is one of my favorite garden topics. But I might be moving, so I'm not planting any this year...

Emily said...

thanks amy! that's too bad...maybe you could grow a small determinate plant in a pot and move it with you?
