New Publications Tab

I just added a tab to the blog for items that have been published in blog posts.  I'm hoping this will make it easier to find these items (graphics, PDFs, etc.) rather than having to search my posts.  So far there are only two items there.  More will be added as the blog grows.  Enjoy.

How Do I Know When to Water My Plant?

discussion than is worthy of a single blog post.

To help the more novice gardeners among us figure out if a plant is ready to be watered, I've made another graphic that builds on the one from my last post.  Because this is a one page graphic and this topic is actually rather complex, the image over simplifies the topic with the goal of making things easier for beginners.  You more advanced (or snooty....cough!) gardeners can probably poke all sorts of holes in it and list exceptions.

A bigger version can be downloaded here.
