There’s nothing on TV next week that’s worth a mention so here are several blog posts of particular note that I’ve read during the week.
If you have, or can make, the time then it’s well reading all the various links and comments on them.
On Monday morning I read What’s wrong with an allotment plot full of flowers on the Guardian Gardening Blog with a sense of disbelief and dismay! I did this on Allotments 4 All to see what fellow allotmenteers thought about it, then commented, as Sofaflyer, on the Guardian post. As a less-conventional allotmenteer I really do sympathise with Chris Smallbone, who incidentally has his own excellent website Dig My Plot.
A couple of weeks ago lawn lounger Veg Plotting did this light-hearted guest post How to spot the arrival of summer on the Guardian’s Gardening Blog which sadly attracted some rather negative comments. She was unable to respond to them as she was on holiday and comments were closed when she got back. She has however repeated the post on her own blog along with her feelings about those remarks.
Yesterday Uphilldowndale did this thoughtful post Anon which is about something that could affect all bloggers, particularly those who do so anonymously. Likewise Maureen did this post British Court Rules Against Blogger Anonymity on her A View From Britain blog. I agree with what both of them say and fear that a lot of good blogs will not only stop, but probably be deleted as well. If that happens it will another step in the wrong direction that this country seems so intent on taking. This morning these related articles were in the Guardian, Telegraph and Times.
Ending on a light-hearted note I came across The Hairy Pot Plants well designed website this week which is well worth taking a peek at!
Have a good weekend!
