The first annual Fork'n Monkey Blog Awards organised by everybody's favourite guerilla gardening blogger The Garden Monkey are attracting considerable attention. Shedworking is honoured to be nominated in two categories - Is There Anybody Out There? (for blogs which celebrate an aspect of life that is usually unappreciated by the general population with a whiff of gardens about them) and You're My Favourite Waste Of Time (for the most entertaining gardening web site, not necessarily the most practical one). There's still time to vote - voting closes May 16 - and it's extremely easy and even anonymous should you chose. So if you want to see Shedworking's name up in lights (or of course somebody else's, we won't cry) then please nip along and vote .
