Nothing as sad as seeing your healthy and blooming squash plants, suddenly die, when vine borers eat the stem from the inside out. Little Rock, Arkansas. Last time I was there was in the 70′s on a road trip to the Northeast. A few months ago, I was invited to attend a 2 day garden blogger’s event hosted by P. Allen Smith and his sponsors in Little Rock bout 24 prominent garden bloggers from around the country were invited to attend this exclusive event this past week.
A skeptic at heart, I must admit I initially thought there would be a catch to this expense paid trip. There wasn’t. No expectations or restrictions were placed on us about our coverage of the event. We were treated to deluxe hotel accommodations at the Capital Hotel in downtown Little Rock and gourmet meals prepared by Chef Brian Kelley at the farm.
