Okay everyone, I’ve got some really exciting news. Well, it may be slightly less exciting for you than it is for me, but you can fake it, right?
I’m expanding my portfolio and writing for another site. As you all know I love H&H, it’s pretty much my favorite thing in the world. But since I don’t do anything to make money off of it (other than offering advertising, which you should check out, by the way) I need to pursue more lucrative paths. I found a way that I can do that while staying at home with my babes and maintaining my integrity and staying on top of Homegrown & Healthy. Annnnnnd the site is all about promoting your own local city and businesses!
Examiner.com is the inside source for everything local. We are powered by Examiners, the largest pool of passionate contributors in the world. Examiners provide unique and original content to enhance life in your local city wherever that may be. Examiners come from all walks of life and contribute original content to entertain, inform, and inspire.
I’ll be providing them with information on gardening, so to be honest you don’t have to be from this area to appreciate the articles. I think that if you like H&H then you’ll benefit from reading my posts on Examiner, so here is my formal invitation to follow me on this other site as well. You can see my page and “subscribe” to my articles by following this link: http://www.examiner.com/gardening-in-charlottesville/aubrey-griffin.
A preview of my first:
With the threat of GMO’s, pesticides and unsafe handling practices it’s no wonder that more and more people are looking to their own backyards for their produce. Unfortunately due to lack of property, time or money constraints it’s not feasible for everyone to do that. Not to mention the fact that some of us are house plant mercenaries and flat-out have difficulty keeping the little green guys alive.
No matter what your deterrents are, there’s hope. With just a tiny bit of determination and a few seeds there are super foods that you can grow with no more than the basics: water, soil and sunshine.
The reason why these foods are guaranteed to grow? They’re genetically wired to survive. They’ve been around, used for culinary and medicinal properties, for centuries. They grow even in the dreariest conditions, flourishing in fields unaided by humans. Simply put: they’re weeds.
