I don’t get much time to read newspapers so I tend to get most of my news from their online versions (we can discuss the guilt associated with not contributing to their production some other time). What I miss about this online blitz are the incidental stories that draw you in and get you involved in a topic you didn’t think you were interested in.
However online sites are doing a better job these days of replicating the style of their newsprint versions and consequently I generally end up reading much more than I used to.
So this is how I stumbled upon the new Guardian Garden Blog which now accompanies their sister paper’s Allotment Blog. It’s always nice to be in at the start of something, and although the focus will likely be on traditional gardens there’s bound to be a few pieces of inspiration along the way. Organic tofu and knitted sandals all round!
