I hope you are warm, well and safe. And I hope that, no matter where you live in Western New York, you find things to be thankful for.

  • I am thankful for everything gardeners do to help others, whether they quietly share plants and seeds with a neighbor, volunteer as a Master Gardener, give produce to food pantries, organize a garden walk or add a native plant to their garden or balcony.
  • The gardening environment in Western New York is one of a kind. There is no other place in North America where you can visit hundreds–hundreds!–of gardens during the summer.
  • I am grateful to my readers. You read my articles, leave comments to help other readers, alert me to things I should write about and let me know if I get something wrong. All of that is so helpful.

What are you feeling grateful for on this Thanksgiving?

  1. I’m thankful for the WNY LAND CONSERVANCY and RIVERKEEPERS and other nonprofits that work to keep our environment and ecosystems safe and educate the public. Also, for those gardeners who implement procedures to conserve soil, water and biodiversity.
