Summer Encore: Humane Gardening | Nancy Lawson

Writer and gardener Nancy Lawson takes gardening for wildlife to the next level. After first encountering her book via my library system’s digital lending services, I have since fallen for the way Nancy writes about wildlife and their interactions in our garden and in our lives. She frequently touches on points that create those ‘aha’ […]

Summer Encore: The Common Milkweed Nursery | Jennifer Kleinrichert & Steve Ross

One of my favorite episodes has been with the owners of The Common Milkweed Nursery, “a 3.5 acre nature preserve, wildlife haven, native plant farm, and land lab in North Central Ohio.” Jennifer and Steve are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to native plants of their region and getting a glimpse of that […]

Summer Encore: Backyard Butterflies Field Guide | Erin Gettler

Ep. 3-15: A New Garden Ethic | Benjamin Vogt

I can’t recall just how I came across Benjamin Vogt’s original blog, The Deep Middle, but I’ve been an avid reader of his writings for at least five or six years. His posts were always ones that sought to poke the bear, if you will, ones to provoke you into thinking about your own relationship […]

Ep. 3-14: The Common Milkweed Nursery | Jennifer Kleinrichert & Steve Ross

I think I was searching for other nature and garden bloggers and came across Jennifer’s blog—but honestly I can’t remember how I landed on the website—however, I was hooked! Over the years they added in The Common Milkweed Nursery and slowly I began […]

I raised a couple of sets of monarchs this summer and thought it would be worthwhile to pass on some of this information to other people interested in raising monarch butterflies, too. I am by far not an expert in this so if […]
