My favourite of the week has to be this from Bates Nursery – an article called Gardening for the iPod generation. First ask what is Ireland doing and then read the following….

The British Association of Garden Designers has previously suggested that if nothing was done to make gardening more trendy, then future generations would no longer take it up as a hobby. It is hoped that aesthetically pleasing and functional garden products such as these will reverse the declining interest in gardening and encourage the so-called “iPod generation” to take up horticulture as a hobby.

And Finally:

While over in London at #nokiaworld – I interviewed Pat Phelan. Then I recorded this little bit of footage….

A Sound Weekend

More a weekend of sound…. see what you think ?

Friday evening – pitch and putt club annual outing

Ended up in playing guitar in the resulting trad session

Saturday, I met Ger who was checking the mosture in barley

After I dropped into Philip who makes elder flower champagne

Sunday morning, listening to the birds at 6am

My first time to play pitch and putt in Ballyboughal

The hens needed some TLC and their house a spring clean

My thoughts on promoting horticulture after reading the weekends papers

Some time with Ella….

I also got a little relaxation in….. a little!

...

And finally the rain stopped long enough to get the grass cut

Audioboo Deep Dive @ The Dot Conf

For those who don’t know what the dotconf was – this post on the dot conf may explain better.

But, it is not until after the hindsight has kicked in that one really realises just how and what audioboo has helped. This was kicked off by Bernie, via podcast of course.

I followed Bernie’s path with my thoughts on podcasting and in particular audioboo as my tool of choice.

So what can you take from this? A good start, from a gardeners perspective, can be made by taking a trip over to audioboo.fm and after that it’s up to you whether you choose to add to the conversation or simply listen. Either or one cannot disagree that the listening to alone is giving radio, maybe of a different format, an entirely fresh and most welcome new lease of life.

..

Of course it would not have been possible without the people behind the scenes….

Personally, I like this little chat of a podcast that was recorded just after Bernie, Mark and myself had completed our deep dive audioboo sessions. On top of the National College of Ireland. 🙂


Still unsure… my numbers below, the coffee pot is on or you can send me an email or leave a comment below 😉

For me personally, I just find it amazing that an entire post is put together by seperate audio clips, taken over varying days that join together and make complete one blog post. Could I have done this one year ago ? Possibly….

Update: I really like Emilys take on the dot conf
