That Blooming Writer with Jodi DeLong

Jodi DeLong wears many hats, as a writer, editor, photographer and social media editor, but her favourite hat is her gardening hat. Her only bad habits are plants, books, cats and more plants, and she’s forever trying to stuff “just one more perennial” into her Wolfville garden. For more gardening fun, follow her on Twitter @bloomingwriter or on Facebook, also at blooming writer.
