Today I received my copy of I Garden: Urban Style Grow The Garden that Fits Your Space & Schedule by Michael Nolan and Reggie Solomon. The photo to the left is a MUST share considering I can't help but imagine the creative ideas I'm going to get out of this book to help make this little space in my yard the growing area I've been dreaming of. I literally ripped into the package just a few steps from the mailbox and this cabin where the mail is delivered knowing it was what I had been anticipating after speaking with this books Author yesterday. I held the book up to admire the cover and it hit me... TOMATOES! I've been drawing up plans to make this roof top a live roof and working on a way to water in this location during the hot months that I never thought of planting one of my FAVORITE treasures from each summers harvest. I can see a landscape with fresh veggies like tomatoes featured in this space growing this summer. As I flipped open the book I was captivated by all the bright images used to capture the true creativity of gardening. Let me tell you - I am loving this book before reading it! Did I mention that Michael Nolan is our guest host on Monday for #gardenchat. I'm excited to here all the wonderful gardening tips and ideas he has to share with us. Please bring your questions for him as well because he is also a rockstar on Twitter and will be able to take questions live! Want to know where Michael got his nick name Garden Rockstar?
