We hope you all had a good week! On Wednesday, we celebrated the release of The Nitty-Gritty Gardening Book
at Mother Earth Gardens
in Minneapolis’s Longfellow neighborhood. The picture above shows Carol Hinz, editorial director of Millbrook Press
, holding the book with the book’s photographer Jennifer S. Larson on the left and author Kari Cornell on the right.

It was a lovely, sunny night spent surrounded by plants and enthusiastic gardeners of all ages.
