One time I got fed up with reading a lot of prose that I read through the info and sifted the pertinent data, came up with my own illustrations (yes, I do draw in my spare time), and compiled the information in an easier to read compendium I entitled "Thyme After Thyme". Hopefully, this free resource helps other people get into the planting habit.
I got restarted into the green habit living in an apartment building where my window opens to more concrete and steel. Having greenery around me is my way to keep sane and connected to the earth, nevermind if some of my neighbors would find it weird to see a grimy, shirtless guy out on the ledge every now and then, snipping, watering, sowing, composting.
This is also sort of my own version of modern-day prepping. Some people would want to stock up on food or MREs, I would rather learn how to grow some of my own food.
Some disclaimers on this endeavor: not because this is a free resource means users should just go ahead and use this under their own names. Sorry but I had quite a lot of experiences where my photo/artwork has been used without permission, without credit, or worse, passed as someone else's work.
Also, this is a labor of love for me as well. While I may have sifted through a lot of sources to arrive at the facts, I also input my own experience into this body of work.
Anyway, I hope this free resource helps inspire others to greener, growing things. Gotta go, got some composting to do.
