The tornado that saved D.C.: 5 great blogs
Good afternoon. What surprises does the D.C.-area blogosphere hold for us today? Well, we've got baby animals in search of a name and television producers in search of the next big gardening star. That's right -- your tomatoes could be your ticket to fame and fortune. Want to hear about the tornado that saved Washington? Then read on!
Dig your way to fame. The Bates Area Civic Association says producers are looking for gardeners with “issues” to appear on a television gardening show. Doesn’t say what show, but there’s an e-mail if you’re interested and need answers about how to grow better eggplant or any other gardening-related queries.
Speaking of gardens, The Natural Capital blogs about a weed that’s actually useful (and pretty.) Joe Pye weed was used to treat kidney and gallbladder ailments. It’s also a favorite of the Tiger Swallowtail butterfly.
What about Bob? Baltimore’s National Aquarium needs your help naming its new puffin chick. Their WaterLog blog says they've narrowed down your choices to five. You have until Sept. 7 to vote.
The folks at Surprising Science blog about the tornado that saved Washington. Who knew? Guess extreme weather can be a good thing – sometimes.
Donut peaches rock – but they don’t roll! (Oh c’mon, you laughed.) Even if you didn’t, this post from Eat More Drink More is worth a read. Fresh peaches are one of my favorite summer treats.
Susie, at Susie’s Budget and Policy, is asking for some feedback on her blog. Take a few minutes to help her out.
