New Book is Done!
I’m thrilled to report that I hit the send button on my computer and the draft of my next book has been completed.
Now this will come in the form of a terrible tease, because the actual book won’t be out for at least 11 months. It takes that kind of gestational period for the book to be edited, designed, printed and packaged. But the time-consuming part from my perspective is complete.
That will free me up for another adventurous spring of educational talks and screenings of the film, A Chemical Reaction, on behalf of the SafeLawns Foundation. I officially kick off the season in January with Felder Rushing at the Winter Day in the Garden Conference in Illinois: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/crawford/winterday/index.html.
Also on my calendar are a whole bunch of consulting clients, from Colorado, to Virginia and Washington state and Maryland. Our new SafeLawns client, John DeFilippi, reported in the past week that he has used our counsel last fall to obtain several high-profile condominium projects that will more than double the size of his all-organic lawn business out in Boulder. Consulting with lawn care companies and municipalities will be much more of SafeLawns’ focus in the year ahead and we’re happy to hear from anyone who’s interested.
Tomorrow, at long last, will be a day off to take my daughter, Aimee, to lunch and shopping. She’ll be 4 on Saturday and we wanted to be sure her birthday doesn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle.
As for what the book is about . . . I can’t tell you just yet. That’s still a trade secret. It is, of course, about lawns — but only indirectly. I can’t wait for it to come out. It’s going to be a blast!
