Great magazine find

By Penny Stine

I just found out about a great magazine for gardening in the Rocky Mountains.  It's called Zone 4 Magazine. Check it out here

Technically, I don't think the Grand Valley is actually in Zone 4 - our growing season is a bit longer than the rest of the Rocky Mountain area and our elevation isn't quite as high. However, the magazine is still great. Nice photos, good tips on organic and non-organic practices, events and places to go, a few what not to do tales and the occasional recipe or cooking idea for garden edibles. 

There was a really good story about weeds (only a fellow gardener can appreciate that!) with a line that almost brought me to tears when it turned to bindweed, the bane of my existence. "It's probably safe to say that once you have this weed in your garden you will always have it, and that is why some agencies consider it one of the 10 most serious weeds in the world." 

At least now I know I'm not alone in my hatred for bindweed.
