I'm back in the Chronicle--First Sunday of each month! My new column, which will appear in the Sunday Food + Home section, will include short Q&A, book reviews, events, new plants and products, and gardening tips. Recently, starting in December, 2015, the Chronicle has been holding my column until the second Sunday. It is still monthly, but I guess the date is going to be less predictable. I will keep you posted. Several of the next posts relate to material in recent columns--scroll down.

I'll be speaking at the S.F. Flower and Garden Show on March 19th, 2016, at 1:00-1:45 p.m., at the Sequoia stage. My topic will be Year-Round Food Gardening for Beginners. The talk, as well as many others, all day long, is included with the price of admission to the show. It's at the San Mateo Event Center, 1346 Saratoga Drive, San Mateo, CA. You can find out more about the show and my talk at sfgardenshow.com. (Builder's Booksource will be offering my books for sale after my talk, and I will be happy to sign any you purchase.)
In April, I will be presenting two free public talks on the topic Getting the Most From a Small Space Food Garden. One is in San Francisco, the other in Mill Valley. I will have books along at both talks, and will be selling and signing them after my talks.
On Saturday, April 9, I'm speaking at the Ortega Branch of the San Francisco Public Library, from 10:30 a.m. to Noon. The library is located at 3223 Ortega Street, at 39th Avenue, in the Sunset District. You can call the branch at 415-355-5700.
On April 14, I'll be giving the same talk at the Mill Valley Library. It is located at 375 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley, CA, and can be reached at 415-389-4292. The talk will be from 7-8:30 p.m.
On June 21, 2014, I spoke at the annual educational conference of the Herb Society of America, in Concord HIlton, CA. on the subject of Some Less Familiar Herbs for the Home Garden, how to grow and use them. I will be adding information about some wonderful culinary herbs I discovered to future talks.
Fans of the Master Gardeners of Alameda County Seminar will wonder why I didn't speak there last October. This is because the Alameda MG is switching to a spring event. They expected it to begin in 2015, but say now it may not happen until 2016. I hope to speak at that event, and will keep you posted.
