A proper, serious, type of author would never resort to this kind of foolishness. But you've never had any idea that I was any of those things, have you?
Well I hope not! Truth be told, this outing started with a bit of disappointment. Andrew and I initially headed to Powell's in downtown Portland—our first such trip since COVID lockdown last spring. Local friends who've ordered the book via Powell's had told me it was being shipped. I assumed that meant it was on the shelves. Not so quick there missy! Nope, nothing. I have to admit I was a little bummed. I mean Powell's is THE BOOKSTORE. We'd visited there even before we lived here. Then again this trip took place last weekend and Fearless Gardening didn't officially publish until today.
So, Garden Fever nursery to the rescue! My friend Amy Campion (co-author of Gardening in the Pacific Northwest, with Paul Bonine) works at Garden Fever and she'd sent me the photo below, so I knew it was in stock there. Yay! Thank you Garden Fever!!!
