Start Small!

There is no better way to start a garden than to think small: as small as a pot on the deck, a group of pots on the fire escape, or a corner of the garden. There is no more perfect plant group for starting small than herbs. They smell wonderful and are tough and beautiful at the same time. It is so satisfying (and easy) to step just outside the kitchen to cut a bundle of fragrant rosemary to throw on the roasted veggies.  There are many great books to use for inspiration--we especially love The New American Herbal by Stephen Orr (Potter, $27.50).  In paperback with 384 pages it has everything: an encyclopedia of herbs and their care, recipes, and design ideas.  Come on by and get inspired to start small.

Fans of Mo Willems’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! and Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back will love meeting this willful young frog with a serious identity crisis. Frog wants to be anything but a slimy, wet frog. A cat, perhaps. Or a rabbit. An owl?
