« Ta da! Welcome to 6a | Main | My Chicken Gardening Dilemma »


We need more Michael Nolans in the world, yet I think he's a one-of-a-kind, kinda guy! Keep up your tireless work Michael. We appreciate it. And yes, great job on your first issue of growwrite!

Michael Nolan is the real deal and his first issue of GrowWrite! is excellent. I look forward to this publication's long and prosperous future. The very best to you, Michael!

Love his t-shirt, but I think I'll have to go for the "helps you hide the bodies" one I see on his website. When the neighbor kids peer over the fence and question me about the digging I'm doing I've often told them that's what I'm doing.

I was born & raised just a bit west of where Michael is now living (I think, since he doesn't actually say the name of the city). I hope he finds his gardening niche there & isn't driven batty by the folks who wish to change his religion of "compassion" to one more in line with their own.

Wonderful post on GrowWrite I look forward to watching this magazine publication grow!

Love his shirt. :)

Greatly enjoyed the first issue and am looking forward to lots more!

Be still my heart. I was the editor of Farm & Garden, an online magazine. F&G covered annual, perennial, herb and vegetable gardens. It was my favorite magazine and I've missed it a lot. I'm subscribing to GrowWrite. Thanks for telling us!

I wish you all the best. I'm a tech neophyte -- very much like the Dad in Calvin & Hobbes -- who would not have a telephone in the house if he could get away with it. But I've discovered very recently that the web seems to be the last refuge for gardeners, and garden writing. I can't remember the last time I read an interesting gardening article in the New York Times and the Washington Post's garden writing has never recovered from the death of Henry Mitchell. (And don't get me started on the Godawful personality-driven "garden show" television lately (still mourning Jim Crockett -- and whatever happened to Roger Swain?). My interest in gardening was piqued long ago by Katherine White's pieces in the New Yorker and by Elizabeth Lawrence's books. At least to me, gardening (in the real sense of a passionate and thoughtful pursuit of lovely plantings) seems to have become a niche hobby that cannot support a mass market, and thus may be perfectly suited for blogs and on-line publications. I read garden rant and the garden professors with pleasure. So welcome to the New Year, and I wish you great success with your undertaking.

I've said it before & I'll say it again here -- Kudos Michael. You really do rock the gardening world!
