I opened my mailbox last week to find the newest issue of Horticulture Magazine. This issue is special because it has my photo of a Dr Wyche’s heirloom tomatoes on the front cover! This image first appeared on my blog back in 2009, it’s my last tomato harvest of the season.
They contacted me about using one of my images a few months ago. They were going to use this image for the article on the inside, but then decided it made a great cover for their special edibles issue. It’s quite funny to see my name and blog in print inside the magazine! It’s quite exciting that people are starting to use my images in their magazines, it certainly help pay the bills associated with my blog. Since I don’t want to have ads on my blog I need to find a way to pay the bills associated with it.
I’m quite happy to see that Horticulture is doing a special issue on edible gardening. It is an area that is becoming more and more popular. I think it’s important for everyone to grow even just a few edible things in their gardens.
I’m especially happy that the article my photos were used for was about heirloom vegetables, something I’m passionate about. I love that a magazine like Horticulture is covering this topic. I hope it encourages a few more gardeners to give heirloom vegetable gardening a try.
I usually get all my magazines from the local library as I don’t subscribe to them. I really enjoy reading Horticulture, Mother Earth News, Grit, and Hobby Farms.
