Really great wrap-up and I appreciate that. I like both articles that you have presented. Both of these are angles/topics that we have not covered in Progressive Forage Grower, and I think our audience will appreciate them.  Really nice job on the coverage. Thank you for running it past me. So this is your official "go ahead" with the articles as you have planned. I trust you have the due dates, if not I'll send those. 
And feel free to pitch me ideas in the future. I like a good contact who can find the stories.

Thank you for sending the Gozzard City article and art our way…everything looked great, and I didn’t have any questions during editing.

For the Progressive Dairyman article on denitrifying woodchip bioreactors to reduce agricultural runoff:


I think this is the best article I’ve seen on our work – you were very true to the science.  Well done!

Hey Tammy,

Good to hear back from you and also to hear that you are enthusiastic about covering (some of) these sessions. 
And yes - brag away !!
Writing for Acres is amazing. I'll have to keep an eye out for your articles.
You should be proud, for sure, of the high quality of your work.
Take good care,

Dear Tamara,        Thank you for letting us know about the article.  You did a fantastic job!  We actually get that magazine, but being in Florida we never saw it because it was sent to NY.   We really appreciate seeing it on my ipad, anyway.      You have great talent.  Keep up the good work!                                              Mike and Gayle Thorpe

I will definitely miss working with you. You've always been so willing to take on articles at the last minute and you're always so pleasant, even when there have been payment issues. I wish you the best of luck as well, and I'm sure you'll be hearing from my replacement - I'm making sure all pitches are handed over to him/her. Take care! Stephanie Peake, former editor Growing and Farming magazines.


Hi Tamara, This is wonderful! Great article, you are a fantastic writer. We just had our last farm to fork dinner for the season. Had a full house and sat 70 guests in our greenhouse. Wonderful food, sunset and moon rise. We hope to host you sometime next season. It would be great if you could email me the cover and article in a format that I can save? thank you so much!
