SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
A certain seasonal blog that is a favorite of mine is back in business and pumping out some great posts. Let's see what exactly that means for the Post of the Week selections.
Runners-Up: Maybe it was the wandering narrative or perhaps it was the big photos, but there was something about this Hello, I'm Scott post that I really liked. Redland Rambles provided us with a nice introduction to the dragon fruit, one South Florida fruit I had not had the pleasure of meeting. Eye on Miami went to interesting and unique lengths when they tried to determine whether a local politician had illegally trimmed the mangroves in the back of his residence.
Winner: I confess that Redland Rambles is one of my favorite blogs in South Florida. Always well written and laid out, the only negative thing I can say about it is that it follows the growing season and goes dormant when the crops do. But since it is now the beginning of growing season, it is back and telling us all about the wonderful bounty that our local area offers when it comes to fruits and vegetables. Last week they did a great two-part post on the inaugural GrowFest held in the Redland. GrowFest! Is A Success and A Taste of GrowFest! documented the event and showed us a few of the people who were involved and instrumental in making it happen. Lots of photos complimented the narrative that was loaded with information about local agriculture. I enjoyed them and am pleased to name the two posts this week's SFDB Post of the Week.
'Til next time, keep on blogging!
