It's lilac time

Sniff the lilac
My latest show is up at and I'm talking about lilac. You can listen to it here.

I also talk about experimenting in the kitchen with sorrel, a tasty green that makes a wonderful sauce and soup. Plus, I answer some great questions from a listener, about planting edibles in part sun, amending the soil, and crop rotation.

If you'd rather read about lilac, you can read my latest column over at Just Out.

Phew! Have I said thank you to all of you who read this blog, listen to the show or read my column? Probably not enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You guys are the best. What have you been up to in your garden lately?

I'm jealous - our lilacs finished blooming a few weeks ago - a huge hedge of them was the first thing I planted when I moved back to Kansas and into my house - they are definitely one of my all-time favorites.

Well well now, isn't that odd. Because I just finished commenting on someone else's site about their pictures of peonies -- and I said that peonies are in my top three -- along with iris and LILACS!

Heather and Lewis - They're easy to overlook the rest of the year: I'm glad to know I'm not the only fan of this wonderful flower.
