Welcome to the second monthly Thirteenth Tribulations! As previous readers are aware, the 13th of each month, Garden Musings hosts a blog circus where you can link your blog telling about your personal gardening tribulation. In other words, link to a blog entry (made within the last month) that describes your landscape design mistakes, your plant deaths, your battles with deer, or your horticultural mishaps, so everyone else can learn from them! The LinkyThing opens at 8:00 p.m. tonight and will close at 8:00 a.m. on the morning of the 14th. I'll open up the linky thing by the 13th of every month and then close it at midnight on the 14th.
For my own blog on a garden misery this month, I'll just link to my attempt at poetic license previously on my August 23rd post titled "Oh Woe, Oh Poe!".
I owe an apology also to Sarah and others who have been trying recently to look at August's Thirteenth Tribulations post. I had started this monthly series under a free trial subscription to LinkyTools which expired, and so the links went away! But, surprise(!) I paid the annual subscription and they're back up now so check them out at the link above!
Also, I owe a big thank you to Horticulture's blogging editor Meghan Shinn for putting in a plug for Thirteenth Tribulations! As I commented on her blog post, "we all may not garden together, but we can commiserate together." Hope we get a load of folks who look forward each month to participating!
Please link away for this month below!
