My Alter Ego on TV

As some of you know and many of you have probably guessed, Vertie is not my real name. When I told my husband that I had started a gardening blog and that I was using a different name, he asked why.

I told him it was fun to have a nom de plume.

He asked, "Don't you mean nom de bloom?" (Now you see why I married him.)

So at the risk of confounding you and breaking through the fourth wall, here's a video from Central Texas Gardener.

I appear in it, and yet the name Vertie is never uttered.

Thanks, Linda. It was a pleasure to meet and work with you, and the video is wonderful.

  1. You were great in the video, and that is a wonderful program. I wish we had something like that in Indianapolis. Maybe we do, and I just don't know about it!

  3. Well done! That's a nice interview, and I was very interested to hear more about the Green Corn Project.

    By the way, I couldn't get your link to open either, but I found the video on the CTG website. It can also be found here on YouTube.

  8. You'll always be Vertie to me (just as Annie will always be Annie). I love the idea of writing under a nom de blume.

    The video was great. Y'all are doing wonderful work with the Green Corn Project.

  9. I just saw you on my recorded CTG today and was going to email you. Congrats, you sounded great and did the Green Corn project proud. I love how awesome the GC beds are looking along the jogging path.
