The magazine, both informative & resourceful, appeals to the master & back porch gardener. I like that!

DIG IT! Magazine

I first discovered DIG IT! in 2012 when I came across a beautiful story ~ Her Favorite Things ~ authored by Mary Jasch. I was moved not only by the topic, but also by the authors poetic way with words. I wrote about it here in Poetry & Gardening. 

Tendenze Design

Mary Jasch is a freelance writer, photographer, gardener, and also the publisher of DIG IT! Magazine. I love how she invites her readers to put on their muck boots, garden hats & gloves and enter the gardens of interesting architects, artists, film makers, philanthropists, and foodies who just so happen to also be incredible gardeners!

Here are three of my favorites ~


A Potter's Garden, Frances Palmer

Frances Palmer Dahlia Garden - photo by Mary Jasch The flowers, mostly dahlias, are tools for inspiration and for marketing her handmade dishware and vases and American-made, factory-made Pearl Collection TM tableware. I love the comments of Frances’ daughter.


 An Architect's Garden, Andrea Filippone

There is a place in Pottersville, New Jersey, that some say is the second Versailles. Resurrected from the ruins of an abandoned farm, this house and garden surely inspires.



An Old World Garden in New World Clothes, Pamela Page

Pamela Page, gardener, gourmet, film maker, shapes her garden with symmetry, dresses it in colorful vegetables, and bejewels it with flowers.

Thank you so much Mary.

I’m thrilled to be in such good company and I’ve got my muck boots on!

This summer started with endings.

Life is so full of change.

Like when the sky opens up and shows you everything at once.

Strands of this day are wound with pink threads of the evening.
