I write only about gardening and agriculture. That said, my writing broadly covers gardening and agriculture, from the details of making compost to planning out a perennial border to making potting soil to growing peaches. Beneath much of my writing runs an undercurrent of respect for Nature and an enthusiasm for growing plants. In my writing, I draw on my experiences as a plant and soil researcher for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Cornell University, on extensive readings of published works, on correspondence with numerous other professional and amateur horticulturists, and, of course, on my own experiences "in the field." My special interests include sustainable agriculture, vegetable gardening, fruit growing, and all aspects of pruning, composts, and soil care.
For the past two decades, my work has appeared in a variety of print media. In addition to publication of my research in professional journals, my popular writing encompasses the following:
