Spring Garden, Romance and Mystery Authors on Writing Book Launch, Free PDF copy

Tulips in my back yard are abundant this spring. So far, no deer have chosen the blooms for their evening meals.

Also in the back yard, Gardener Ted (catch a glimpse of him behind the white fence) has roto-tilled the ground a couple of times. He worked up this section on the left and mounded up the dirt. Before planting the melons and squash plants, he placed black plastic over the rows to heat up the soil. Today the soil is only 52 degrees F.
Yesterday he planted some fun new veggies...purple cabbage, purple cauliflower, broccoflower (a combination of broccoli with cauliflower). He's tries new things every year.

Rhubarb, a spring crop here in Michigan. My DH loves it. Me? Not so much. How about you?

I miss gardening, but I'm too busy writing these days. Thanks for putting this book together. :)

Hi Melissa, I miss gardening when it's off-season and I have to buy veggies. Wow, a head of cauliflower now is at least $3. We really get spoiled having all the fresh produce out our back door. Thanks for being a part of the writing tips book.

Helena Fairfax said...

What a fabulous back yard, JQ. I don't have room to grow much in mine, but my tulips are doing well at the moment.
Thanks so much for putting this book together. I'll be mentioning it a lot this week!

J.Q. Rose said...

Thank you, Alex.

J.Q. Rose said...

Fascinating that you posted photos from your garden as part of the announcement of the book. Me, too! No tulips, alas, in Tucson. (I'm with your dh ... love rhubarb)
I just announced the book on my blog at
I also just read more of the book. It's chockablock with great ideas! (I wanted to tweet that, but too many characters!)

J.Q. Rose said...

Hey Kathy, I think chockablock is a great way to describe that eBook! LOL. Thanks for sharing on your blog. Does rhubarb grow in Tucson?? Still wrinkle my nose at the sight of it.!!!
