Keeping up with the Willises

Back in March, Mark of Mark's Veg Plot fame posted that he had been approached by Grow Your Own magazine and subsequently featured in a section of the magazine entitled Show Us Your Plots.

Well the same has happened to us and we now follow in Mark's illustrious footsteps.

Our plot is featured in the August edition of GYO which is out now. I'm always puzzled by how magazine operate in a different time zone to the rest of us

Mark commented that he smiled as they had published the photo of his plot back to front. This is obviously a magazine trademark, however in our case it was our photo that had us facing in the opposite direction Maybe they thought that this improved our looks.

We share the article with Kathy from Gluts and Gluttony and Jon from Real Men Sow. It's times like this that I wish that I had used a more imaginative blog title. What about "Real Women Grow"? On second thoughts maybe not!

If you do stray here after reading the magazine please leave a comment and maybe stick around for a while.

  1. They do say people have a 'best side' when having a photo taken. Congratulations on being featured in the magazine, fame at last.

  13. Congratulation, Sue! That's so interesting! Here, there's no gardening magazine to guide the gardener, especially amateur gardener like as me.

    1. We don't buy them either, Elaine. We only bought this one because we knew we were going to have a feature in it.
