Summer Issue: Coming Right Up!

It’s the first official day of summer, and the sign up sheet for the summer issue of Bezhig Eta (just one) is open! Are they printed yet? No, they are not. But they’re going to be! Expect them to hit your mailbox approximately in July sometime. It will be summer. There will be zine. I got a stash of envelopes from my mom & a couple sheets of stamps from a plantstagram friend, so I’m all set.

The summer issue is on pipsissewa or gaagigebag (everlasting leaf), Chimaphila umbellata. Since it’s in the same family as the spring issue, I’m tempted to stick with that for the fall and winter issues – but I wasn’t planning to, originally. I guess once fall is approaching, I will just write about whatever plant I feel like at the time. It seems far away right now, so I can’t really guess what that will be.

I have thought about taking requests, but I can only write about plants I know, so I’m not sure that would work. On the other hand, I’m really curious what plants people want to read about! Leave me a comment or email me if you have ideas.
