Garden & Gun…

Sep 8, 2009


So, I stumbled upon a magazine that fascinates me. I was first handed a copy of Garden & Gun about a year and a half ago. Really??? I said...Garden& Gun?? It perplexed me. But I read through that first copy and thought the magazine was interesting. I brought it home to my husband and he had the same reaction. It sat around my house for a while and then I guess I forgot about it because I never saw another copy on a newstand. As I was walking through the grocery store today at lunch I spotted a magazine cover with a lovely pitcher plant photo on the cover. So of course I made a bee-line for it. Sure enough...Garden & Gun. LOL. It has interesting garden content with a mix of hunting and ranch-type info, architecture, food, fashion etc. Nikki and I have decided it's a "Man's" version of Southern Living. But we both love it. Not that it's still not is...but I think I'll keep buying it. Maybe even sell it at NHG.

Simultaneously fascinating and kind of hilarious.  Think I’ll get a subscription for my boyfriend—he’d probably love it!  Thanks for the tip.

It’s really quite a serious and fashionable magazine. I’d say it competes with Esquire and Southern Living. Well designed and written.

I’ll be forwarding it to Zac to inquire about Freelance! Although he knows little of gardens, and nothing of guns!
