Indulge us here a moment at HGTVGardens, as we say goodbye to our HGTVGardens blog and prepare to say hello to our new and improved HGTVGardens.com website which debuts February 18.
We thought we’d take this opportunity to stroll down memory lane and remember some of our favorite blog posts from the past year, starting with everyone’s favorite fowl-fan, Mick Telkamp. As an editor with the unique pleasure of reading Mick’s posts each week I have loved discovering the complexity of chicken-rearing. It’s hard not to read Mick’s posts and urgently want a coop of chickens of your own. One moment Mick is waxing emotional about chicken psychology and the special bond that can form between a man and his chick. And the next minute, Mick’s all business as he details how to prepare your flock for winter. Mick is a real Renaissance man, freezing his surplus of chicken eggs one minute and putting up peaches the next. What can this fella not do?
