Published by Marion Owen, Alaska gardener and
Co-author of Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul

Like you, I don't like spam or junk mail, but I appreciate useful, upbeet (upbeat!) information that focuses on the half-full, not the half-empty, side of life. So I publish the Up-Beet Gardener e-newsletter from my home office in Kodiak, Alaska. It's a collection of organic gardening tips, recipes, photography how-to's and more. To make it easy on you and your computer, you have a choice of receiving the html issue or the text-only issue. And out of respect for your privacy, I do not share this mailing list with anyone. Period.

The current issue is always posted on my site. If you'd like to receive the Up-Beet Gardener, simply send me an email to:

Cheers and blessings to you!

Thanks for visiting and please stop by again. I'll put the coffee on!
