Woot! Tagged by Garden Rant

Susan Harris over at Garden Rant did a nice little write-up about a couple of courses I teach. There's even a nice pic of student Matt McEwen doing good things for the Lesser Prairie Chicken. Check it out!

I love our little program and am grateful every day that I get to be a part of it. Thanks much, Susan, for the very nice write-up about it.

And, just for grins, here's a photo from one of our class trips down the Brazos River.

  2. Count me among the ones who want to go back to college if it's for courses like yours. Hooray for interested kids braving the cold! Hooray for cool teachers enlivening our knowledge of the world!

  5. Could you maybe convince the Univ. of Washington to take you on as adjunct faculty sometime? I'd take any of those classes, they sound so cool. I don't know my +++ from my elbow in the wilderness, can't draw a leaf to save my life, and wish it were all otherwise. Reading a book right now that made me think of your expertise in this area, "The Expeditions" by Karl Iagnemma. Not great but interesting none the less, about exploring/mapping natural resources of Northern Michigan during the 1840s.

  7. Hi Susan, kudos to you for making a difference! For your farm, your readers have made great suggestions. Might I add the little leaf basil Spicy Globe and flat leaf parsley for pesto to go with those tomatoes.

    Our thoughts are still with you as you get on with life and gardening, which can be such a comfort when we are troubled.

  9. Thanks, everyone! You should just come on down! Or, if we have more spring flings, maybe we could do a little drawing/journaling workshop together or something. I would love to do something like that.

  10. Wow, I just read the description of your program on the TT website and boy, I would just love that! You don't offer a graduate degree in it, do you? I've been casting about for another career since I've been laid off and grad school is one thing I'm thinking of. I had no idea that Texas Tech had such cool things going on. Kudos to you and the staff of your program.
