An Award for Veg Plotting :)

It's always nice to receive an award, especially when Veg Plotting is in such good company and the citation says:

Vegplotting was pointed in our direction as one of the ‘Queen of the Blogs’. Excellent. It lives up to its name.

I owe a beer to whoever said that :)

You can check out all the other winners here. There's plenty of excellence and a number of sites I'd not found before, which is great. As usual with this kind of thing, there are plenty of blogs, websites and whatever that haven't had the recognition they deserve.* Therefore I'm pleased to see My Garden School is asking you to mention your favourites in the Comments (via the above link), ready for consideration next year.

* = which I mused about in relation to a certain list of top influential gardeners published in January.

My thanks to Toby Musgrave for blogging about his inclusion, which led to my discovery. If you're interested in garden history, his blog is well worth a look :)
