Windcliff: A book for passionate and playful gardeners

The very best books on my shelves suffer scribbles in their margins.  Future book sellers will either be amused or dismayed by my vandalism, but I cannot stop myself (and I always use pencil). A good book speaks to you and prompts you to answer back.  It is a long and involved conversation over many nights filled with questions, observations, exclamations, counterpoints, wine stains, and opinion. When you finish, you have consumed, and that book is set apart from those you have merely fondled or...

United in Condemnation & Tonic: A Letter to the Midwest

21 February 2020 Lovettsville, VA Dear Scott, It is Sunday morning, everyone is fed, and there is still six inches of crusty, icy snow upon the ground. The will to put my boots back on and be upthrusting and productive outside dwindles with each contented sigh of little Mungo here at my feet.  It is a good time to answer your letter. I had thought of answering it last Sunday, regardless of the momentous date, but couldn’t trust you to leave the easy joke alone. It appears we are finally in agre...

Why Do We Have Such Trouble Getting Monuments Of Women Right?

Consider, for instance, the new, widely derided “For Mary Wollstonecraft” monument in London. “Why couldn’t a statue of Wollstonecraft, the individual woman, be seen as universally inspiring and iconic? It was hard not to view the monument as a victim of its own good intentions, inadvertently becoming yet another example of a female form as emblem of an abstract idea, such as the Statue of Liberty or Marianne, a symbol of the French Republic, or any number of nameless angels, goddesses or grace...

Drinking Beer & Building Shit: Donkey Shelters

First, a warning: Sad farm shit ahead.  About this time last year, I walked out to the barn one morning and found the older of my two donkeys, Doc, laying unresponsive on the ground. He was alive, but barely. The vet lives just down the road and was able to make it out to us quickly–so I didn’t have to wait long for help and a diagnosis–but it wasn’t good news. Doc had some kind of stroke or other neurological event in the early hours of the morning. He was blind, unable to stand up, ...

The GardenRant Story

To help celebrate GardenRant’s 15th anniversary this year, I’ve pulled together the story of how it started, how it continued through changes in life circumstances and technical crises, and how it’s changed my own life. Michele Owens – fit, classy, and boy can she write. Early Gardenblogging and Scheming Gardenblogging noticeably debuted in about 2005, with a dozen or so of us across the country posting and reading/commenting on each others’ blogs.  It was fun. Google Reader (RIP) made it ea...

Pissing Away a Privilege and a Newly Invented Theology; A Letter to VA.

January 27, 2021 Cincinnati, Ohio  Dear Marianne, It was a great relief to receive your most recent letter. I was a bit worried my previous letter to you might have been a little on the harsh side. I apologize for shining so much light on how much you like to complain. It was very generous of you to say that I’m the better person in your last letter, but the fact is–and we both know this–we could squabble all day on the issue of which of us is worse. While it would be terrific fun for us, I fear...

French President Macron accuses American media — with its critique of systemic racism — of legitimizing terrorism.

He spoke with Ben Smith of the NYT, who wrote: [Macron said] “When France was attacked five years ago, every nation in the world supported us.... So when I see, in that context, several newspapers which I believe are from countries that share our values — journalists who write in a country that is the heir to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution — when I see them legitimizing this violence, and saying that the heart of the problem is that France is racist and Islamophobic, then I say the ...

In reply to deb. I had the same problem with dry dough. When checking my measurements I discovered that my 6 T of milk was only about 60 ml. To get to 90 ml each tablespoon needs to be overflowing. I will just measure by ml in the future.

Comment on skillet turkey chili by Alene

In reply to Marianne P. I made this tonight and it was easy and delicious. Even my husband, who is not a fan of turkey chili, really liked it. Now I can delete all the other mediocre turkey chili recipes. I think the lime juice does help it though. I added grated cheddar cheese, sliced fresh jalapeños, chopped up avocados, and the pickled onions on the side. I left everything else the same, except for a tablespoon of chipotle chili adobe sauce and one of the chopped peppers. And, since...

Comment on ultimate zucchini bread by Marianne

Delicious! We’ve made them twice in the past week, in loaf and muffin form. My daughter is allergic to eggs so I tried several subs to make them vegan. The best results were with half a cup of seltzer water. It was surprisingly fluffy for a vegan baked good and stayed moist even after a few days.
